The 2016 South Georgia Conference Delegation to General Conference. From L to R: Mr. Bill Hatcher, Mrs. Allison Lindsey, Rev. Don Adams, Rev. Jay Hanson, Mr. Carl Childs, Rev. Jim Cowart, Dr. Bob Moon, and Mr. Larry Price.
The South Georgia Conference’s delegation to the 2016 General Conference returned to their homes this past weekend after spending two weeks serving as delegates in Portland, Ore.
“This has been a very interesting two weeks, and what an awesome opportunity for us,” said Bill Hatcher, a lay delegate and member of Statesboro First United Methodist Church. “I want you to know, South Georgia, that you have a phenomenal delegation. They worked hard, they worked together, and they represented South Georgia in a really strong way. You would be very proud of them.”
