Bishop Ken Carter is pleased to announce the appointment of Rev. Durwood Foshee as the new North East District Superintendent effective July 1, 2020. Rev. Foshee is currently the North West District Superintendent and faithfully served churches across Florida prior to joining the Cabinet in 2016. He is a graduate of Florida Southern College and Emory University.
“Durwood Foshee has been a integral voice in our appointive cabinet. He is a native of Jacksonville and served fruitfully and faithfully in that region as a pastor. I am grateful for his openness to take up leadership in the Northeast District.”
Rev. Dr. Wayne Wiatt will become the new North West District Superintendent effective July 1, 2020 and will also continue as the Senior Pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church in Tallahassee. This innovative approach is being practiced in other annual conferences, including North Georgia, and will also begin in the South West District of Florida in July. Additional staff support at the local church and district level will be provided to make sure the mission of the church and the district are faithfully accomplished.
“Wayne Wiatt is one of the most respected pastors and leaders in our annual conference” Bishop Carter commented. “I am grateful to Wayne and to the leadership of Trinity UMC for their willingness to collaborate with us in this season.”
Dr.. Wiatt has served as Senior Pastor at Trinity UMC since 2016. Previously he was the Director of the Office of Clergy Excellence and District Superintendent of the East Central District, as well as churches in Jacksonville and Palm Coast.
He earned his undergraduate degree in sacred music from Oral Roberts University and his Master’s of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry from Candler School of Theology at Emory University. He has served faithfully beyond the local church, as a member of the United Methodist Publishing House Board of Directors and the Board of Ordained Ministry of the Florida Conference.
He and his wife, Ramona, have two adult children, Matthew (Katie) Wiatt and Taylor (Phillip) Stokes.
