The Rev. Wayne Napier of Baldwyn will take over duties as Mississippi Conference disaster response coordinator in June.
Napier follows the Rev. C.J. Caufield who has accepted a position at Delanco Camp in Tabernacle, N.J.
Caufield said he believes this is the most natural selection.
“The breadth of experience, diligence, flexibility, training, dedication and theological lenses through which he views and executes within this ministry make him the perfect person for this transition. Wayne will bring many new gifts to this exciting and growing ministry. I can think of nobody better for the task,” Caufield said. “We are so grateful that Wayne is willing to step up the plate and continue doing much of what he is already doing.
