Bishop Connie Shelton is pleased to announce the appointment of Rev. Dennis Peay as Conference Statistician, effective October 1, 2023.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Rev. George Speake for his dedicated service as Statistician for over 32 years. Peay will take over this vital role following Speake’s retirement on September 30, 2023. Additionally, Peay will continue serving Westminster United Methodist Church in Kinston.
In a spirit of continuity and transition, Speake has graciously agreed to assist Peay in navigating the disaffiliation tables and next year’s statistical tables in January, ensuring a smooth handover of responsibilities.
A quadrennial nomination for the Conference Statistician role will be presented at Annual Conference 2024 following the processes outlined in The Book of Discipline, paragraph 603.7.
We appreciate your support as we welcome Rev. Dennis Peay to this important role and express our gratitude to Rev. George Speake for his service to the Conference.
