Bishop Scott Jones announced today that Rev. Robert Besser has been appointed as the new Associate Director of Church Leadership in the Center for Leadership Formation beginning July 1, 2021. Besser currently serves as the Director for Congregational Excellence.

“I am eager to continue the ministry to strengthen every Texas Annual Conference congregation and to do all I can to serve all the clergy and laity. I look forward to working alongside the Leadership Formation team as we move into the next phase of assisting and enabling all congregations to make disciples of Jesus Christ so that the world will be transformed,” he said.
