The final district lines will be tweaked by the Bishop and Cabinet after the upcoming Ministry Cluster Tip-Offs in February and March, a map from the approved Imagine Indiana Plan shows the current plans for those district lines is available  online.

  • District 1 will be called the North District and will be served by the Rev. Cindy Reynolds, current Warsaw District Superintendent
  • District 2 - Northeast District will be served by the Rev. David Michel, current superintendent of the Fort Wayne District.
  • District 3 - Northwest District will be served by the Rev. Craig LaSuer, the current superintendent of the Marion District.
  • District 4 - West District will be served by the Rev. Judi Purvis, current superintendent of the Vincennes District.
  • District 5 - North Central District will be served by the Rev. Frank Beard, current superintendent of the Kokomo District.
  • District 6 - Central District will be served by the Rev. Bert Kite, who has been named to serve the Indianapolis West District in 2009, effective July 1.
  • District 7 - East District will be served by the Rev. Dale Mendenhall, current superintendent of the Muncie.

Transitional work into this new 10-district model will continue during 2009 with the current 18 districts in place. The current North and South Cabinets will continue to meet both separately and together as these transitions are made.

Coyner noted, "We have all realized that 2009 will be a time of transition and even a messy time, but it is helpful to know where we are headed. I am excited about the ten individuals who will serve on the Cabinet beginning in 2010, and in the spirit of transparency it seems appropriate to announce these names as we continue in our transition."
