Appointment Announcements

One of the traditions of annual conference sessions is ‘the fixing of appointments’ by the presiding Bishop. While in days past, this was when and where pastors and churches learned about these appointments, the electronic age has taken away a lot of that suspense. However, it is still a key part of our business. The appointment year begins on July 1 and the following link is a listing of these clergy appointments that were officially set in the Sending Forth Service of the 2022 Session of the Texas Annual Conference. 

Bishop Scott J. Jones announces the following appointments (as of June 22, 2022):
