Washington Conference Adjusts Management Style
A statement from John Freedman, Washington Conference president
Federal Way, Wash. (February 1, 2012) – As Washington Conference continues to grow, we find ourselves needing to adapt our management style.
In order to better serve our constituency of 22,100 members, the Washington Conference Executive Committee voted to experiment with a new leadership position and named Bill McClendon as vice president for church growth, evangelism and ministerial.
We currently have a vice president overseeing the educational ministry of our conference and we will now have a vice president overseeing our churches, church growth and evangelistic ministries of our conference.
McClendon is a gifted leader and has the skills we need to attempt this change. Two pastors in the field will assist McClendon with ministerial (pastors’ pastor) duties. This new designation of responsibilities will allow conference officers to focus on spiritual growth of churches and schools.
We will continue to evaluate the process and seek God’s guidance as we move together into the future. God is not limited to any one model of leadership. Our only desire is to be faithful to Jesus and the mission He calls us to fulfill.
Our conference vision is “Every member, church and school reflecting the image of Jesus and working together to proclaim the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ and His soon return.” We see our leaders, our ministries, our churches, or members awakening with new life to share the Gospel message in western Washington and beyond.
