Bishop Scott J. Jones announced that the Rev. Dayimi Pimentel has been appointed as the new Racial and Ethnic Ministry Coordinator beginning March 1, 2021. Pimentel currently serves as Associate Pastor at La Vid Comunidad Cristiana United Methodist Church in Galena Park, Texas.

“As a part of the Center for Leadership Formation, Dayimi and her team will be connecting our churches with Subject Matter Experts to enhance their ability to do ministry in diverse mission fields throughout the Conference,” said Rev. Morris Matthis, Director of the Center for Clergy Excellence.
