As the Bishop and Appointive Cabinet for the Desert Southwest Conference prepare of the appointment year 2022, the Cabinet has agreed to use a practice that Bishop Grant has used for most of his episcopal career. This is the practice of posting clear opening of churches so that clergy are able to put their names forward if they are interested in a church on the clear openings listing. It is our prayer that people experience a stronger sense of transparency and collaboration in the appointment process.
The Bishop and Appointive Cabinet as that we join together in prayer, that all of us may listen to the spirit of God as we move into this appointment-making season. Click here to view the list of Clear Openings for you to review and be in prayer about.
Be the Hope,
Bishop Grant J. Hagiya
