The Assistant to the Bishop serves as the Chief of Staff for the Texas Annual Conference Staff, organizes the work of the Annual Conference Sessions, and provides staff support and leadership in the Conference Leadership Team, Annual Conference Committee on Nominations, the Annual Conference Planning Team, The Missions Team, and the Church & Society Team. The Assistant to the Bishop also represents the Texas Annual Conference on boards at Houston Methodist Hospital, Methodist Retirement Communities, and Lakeview Methodist Camping and Conference Center.
