Acting on the recommendation of the Associate Conference Minister Search Committee, the Executive Board has called Rev. Dr. Barbara Doerrer-Peacock as Associate Conference Minister for the Southwest Conference.
Profiles were received during the month of February. Search committee members Wendy Spurgeon (NM), Janet Leung (NAZ), Rev. Rock Fremont (CAZ), Rebecca Glenn (CAZ), Rev. Dr. Randy Mayer (SAZ) considered eight applicants. Zoom and in-person interviews were held in March and April. The committee was unanimous in its recommendation.
Dr. Doerrer-Peacock brings deep knowledge of the Southwest Conference, creativity, and a new vision for spiritual formation and leadership development to her position. Her portfolio will include Committee on Church and Ministry A, and the ministry of spiritual leadership formation including camp and transformational experiences for all ages (mission trips, immersion experiences, and more).
Upon learning of her call, Dr. Doerrer-Peacock said, “I am deeply grateful and humbled for the opportunity to continue my ministry in this way in the conference I have served and loved so much! I look forward to the ways God will lead us and create leaders of us to serve the world.”
During this year’s SWC Annual Meeting delegates and participants will welcome Dr. Doerrer-Peacock to her new ministry, and will learn more about her vision for spiritual leadership formation and youth and outdoor ministry. She will be preaching Saturday morning worship.
