UMCom places Stanford on pair of committees


At the fall 2008 meeting of the United Methodist General Commission on Communications in Nashville, the Rev. Shane Stanford, ministry leader-host for the United Methodist Hour and team leader for Message and Media in the Mississippi Annual Conference, received two committee assignments. 

Stanford will serve on the Global Health Initiative Committee and on the Personnel Committee for the GCOC. Stanford’s term on the GCOC runs 2009-2012. 

The Global Health Initiative Committee supports United Methodist Communications’ effort to create partnerships with other boards, agencies, and appropriate entities to impact health care around the world. This multidimensional project will look at reframing how people view health care to include body, mind, spirit, and community. Also, this Initiative focuses on education and advocacy. 

The Personnel Committee Oversees development, review and authorization of personnel policies and procedures; conducts the evaluation of the General Secretary; reviews the affirmative action plan and the annual affirmative action report.

Stanford also serves on the United Methodist Global AIDS Fund Committee.
