Message from Interim Executive Conference Minister (ECM) Rev. Phil Hart:

Friends I need to update you on a few staffing changes in the Tri-Conference Ministries (TCM).

First, Kelsey Plummer, our Administrative Specialist for Ministerial Authorization and Congregational Well-Being, left our staff on January 6th to begin a new ministry as a chaplain at the Methodist Hospital in Des Moines, IA. Kelsey has been an important part of the TCM team and helped us organize and be creative with how we did our ministry. On behalf of the Tri-Conference I want to thank Kelsey for her time and bless her in her new ministry!
Second, I have asked Rev. Campbell Lovett to assist us on a very part-time basis with the Committees on Ministry in the Tri-Conference. Rev. Lovett is the former Conference Minister for the Michigan Conference of the UCC and since retiring has served as a Transitional Conference Minister for the South Central Conference UCC and is now at a local church as an interim. Campbell is very respected and well loved in the UCC and I believe we are lucky to have him working with our Committees on Ministry.
