Up Close Series: Meet your General Conference Delegates


Lay and Clergy delegates have been carefully and prayerfully chosen to represent the Texas Annual Conference at the 2016 General Conference in Oregon this May, but what are their passions and thoughts, and motivations?

Learn the “backstory” of several delegates by following this series in this and the next two issues of Cross Connection. You’ll find Q and A’s either by video or text and gain a better knowledge of the people representing you at General Conference 2016.  Delegates will work with others to revise church law as well as adopt resolutions on current moral, social and economic issues, along with the approval of budgets and plans for denomination-wide programs.
The first edition of this series includes Rev. Dr. Laceye Warner, Executive Vice Dean on the faculty of Duke University Divinity School. Laceye lives in Abbott, Texas with her husband Rev. Gaston Warner and one daughter.

Reggie Clemons is a lay member of our delegation. Reggie is the Church Administrator and Worship Leader at First United Methodist Church in Pearland, Texas. He and his wife Caroline have 3 daughters and 3 granddaughters.
