Mike Ford, Central Texas Conference Lay Leader and third-elected lay delegate to General Conference 2020, has informed the Central Texas Conference delegation that he is resigning his position on the delegation following an accident that damaged one of his legs. While Mike’s injuries are not life-threatening, they will require a significant and strenuous recovery period. “It looks like I’m going to be laid up for a while,” Mike reported. “Beginning this weekend with the Jurisdictional meetings and episcopal interviews in Oklahoma, the breadth and depth of information received and compiled, must be in the hands of those who can immerse themselves in all that is to come over the next few months. I am now simply unable to perform those duties to the level of excellence I expect from myself and, much more importantly, to the level that the good people of the conference deserve.”
Please join in praying for a complete and speedy recovery for Mike.
As the first-elected laity alternate to General Conference, Kevin Gregory will now serve as the fourth lay delegate to GC2020. Kylie Campbell will now move into the first alternate role. To see all the 2020 delegation members, visit ctcumc.org/delegation-2020
During Mike’s recovery, Darlene Alfred, associate conference lay leader, will serve in his stead as needed.
