A Word from the District Superintendent

A Time of Transition

As we come to the end of another Conference year, it is time to recognize some very special members of our family that will be entering a new phase of ministry, being appointed to other churches, being commissioned as provisional members of our conference, and moving to new areas of service in our district.  I am thankful for all of these and their contributions to the LaGrange District:


Rev. Rick Price

Rev. John Tompkins

Rev. Diane Schultheiss


Moving to New Appointments Outside the District

Rev. Diane Parrish                      Kennesaw UMC

Rev. Mark Jordan                        The UMC @ the Well

Rev. Billy Beard                          Sunnyside & Searcy UMC

Rev. Brian Ridgdell                     Louisiana Conference

Rev. Sang Yeoul You                   Virginia

Rev. Edward Landrum                 Moore’s Chapel UMC

Rev. Ralph Thompson                 Columbia Drive UMC

Rev. Cole Altizer                        Western North Carolina Conference


Those Being Commissioned as Provisional Elders

Edward Landrum

Ralph Thompson

Blake Trent


I also want to express my sincere appreciation to Mr. Harold Tarpley for his service as our District Lay Leader for the past five years.  Harold has represented us well and been an excellent leader and encourager to us all.  I also want to thank Mrs. Sybrenna Thornton for her leadership as our District Lay Speaking Director.  Our Lay Speaking ministries have grown substantially under her guidance. 


We will welcome all our new family members next month and celebrate new leadership in our District.  I look forward to seeing you at Annual Conference.
