The Ohio Conference has been blessed – again! When the Rev. David Long-Higgins expressed interest in moving from local church work to full time judicatory work, and when the Ohio Conference Transitional Minister search team connected with him, great possibilities took shape.
David and the Rev. Beth Long-Higgins have ben partners in ministry in Ohio Conference for a very long time. They are well known, respected, and trusted for their competence. Beth, as many know, is a key staff member for United Church Homes, serving as executive director of the Ruth Frost Parker Center for Abundant Aging. David has recently resigned after (27 years) as pastor of David’s United Church of Christ in Canal Winchester, OH. So, you know him!
His work in behalf of the whole Ohio Conference begins September 1, 2018. It is my hope and expectation that you will welcome him with enthusiasm and joy, support his efforts to coordinate the many interests of the Conference and our Associations, and pray for him and all of the Conference family.
Welcome, David! May the road in front of you be scenic, adventurous and with a minimum of potholes or detours! Shalom, friend!
Interim Conference Minister
