OC Executive Committee Appoints New Directors and Changes Department Structure

On April 27, in a follow-up to the move of Dan Linrud from the position of Assistant to the President to that of Oregon Conference President, the Oregon Conference Executive Committee voted the following appointments and department restructuring…


Executive Committee Appoints New Assistant to the President
In the meeting of the Oregon Conference Executive Committee, April 27, 2017, it was voted to appoint Elder Stan Beerman to serve as Assistant to the President.  Elder Beerman has served many years as a pastor in the northwest, including the Oregon Conference, as well as serving in the Oregon Conference headquarters as Family Ministries Director and then Ministerial Director.  Elder Beerman will now take up his new responsibilities assisting the administrative team and helping with pastoral placement in churches.  We are excited to have Elder Beerman serve in this new capacity!

Executive Committee Appoints New Ministerial Director
In the meeting of the Oregon Conference Executive Committee, April 27, 2017, it was voted to appoint Elder Charles (Chuck) Burkeen to serve as Ministerial Director.  Elder Burkeen has served many years as a pastor in the Oregon Conference, as well as serving in the Oregon Conference headquarters as the Member Ministries Director, leading a team working with pastors and members in outreach and relational ministries.  Elder Burkeen will now take up his new responsibilities working with pastors in this new capacity as a coach and facilitator, helping pastors be the best they can be.  We are excited to have Elder Burkeen serve in this new capacity!

Executive Committee Votes to Restructure the Member Ministries Department
In the meeting of the Oregon Conference Executive Committee, April 27, 2017, it was voted to restructure the Member Ministries Department into two separate departments:  (1) Outreach Department and (2) Relational Ministries Department.  While these areas have been incorporated in the Member Ministries Department and served by an Director and Associate Director, it is believed that more specific focus may be given to each of these important aspects by separating them and having a Director lead each area.
