New Bishops

Our District Superintendent, Mark Webb, was elected Bishop last week at the Northeast Jurisdictional Conference. He will serve the Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church, beginning Sept 1. Our current bishop, Bishop Jane Allen Middleton, is retiring. Our new bishop will be Bishop Jeremiah Park, who served the last 8 years as Bishop of New York.
