Rev. Alexis Fuller-Wright Called as Designated Term ACM!
It is a joy to announce that, on March 20th, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to call the Rev. Alexis Fuller-Wright as a full-time Designated Term Associate Conference Minister serving the Maine Conference. She will begin her ministry with us in the final week of May, taking up a portfolio that includes curating a culture of generosity among us, supporting Maine Conference congregations served by full-time pastors, and encouraging the ministries of Pilgrim Lodge.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the members of the Search Committee for their excellent work: Rev. Nick Davis (co-chair), Dr. Cynthia Huggins (co-chair), Allison DiMatteo, Rev. Emily Goodnow, Rev. Dan Hollis, and Betsy Westcott-Keiter.
We are excited for you to meet Alexis when she comes on staff, and we are cooking up some plans for virtual introductions, but, in the meantime, you can learn more about her in her bio below:
