Announcement from Bishop Nunn


The Oklahoma Conference
The United Methodist Church
Bishop James G. Nunn

April 12, 2019

The work of the Oklahoma Conference Center is of strategic importance in the church. For the past fourteen years, Rev. Dr. Craig Stinson has effectively served the conference. Craig has elected to retire on June 30 this year. I express deep gratitude to Craig for his leadership and count it a blessing to have known him over a decade and to have served with him in Oklahoma.

It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Rev. Derrek Belase as the incoming Director of Connectional Ministries, effective July 1, 2019. While serving his present appointment as director of Discipleship, Derrek has demonstrated effective leadership that impacts the local church, the community, and the annual conference. His gifts, insights, and relational skills already enhance the work of the conference.

I invite us to celebrate the ministries and pray for both the outgoing and incoming directors.
