INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Bishop Mike Coyner has appointed the Rev. Sergio Reyes, a part-time local pastor and co-pastor of Getsemani United Methodist Church in Fort Wayne as a part-time Associate Director of Church Development with Hispanic populations, effective Oct. 1.
Sergio and his wife, the Rev. Janie Reyes, also a part-time local pastor, were appointed to the newly chartered Cristiana Getsemani congregation in May 2007, Indiana Conference’s first chartered Hispanic church.
Reyes will work closely with the Rev. Mark Gough, director of Church Development in the Indiana Conference, to reach out to specific Hispanic populations within the state. Reyes’ task is to develop and implement the conference strategic plan for church development, with a focus on making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
