Announcement of Associate Director of Lay Leadership and Age-Level Ministries

I am pleased to announce that Demetrio L. Beach will become our Conference Associate Director of Lay Leadership and Age-Level Ministries, effective July 1, 2016.

Mr. Beach is presently serving in Discipleship Ministries at Trinity First United Methodist Church (El Paso, TX). His primary responsibility in this position has been to help laity discover their spiritual gifts for ministry.

Mr. Beach previously served as the Director of Program and Outreach Ministries of the Upper New York Conference with a focus on camping and retreat ministries and as the Director of Youth/Educational/Caring Ministries at Bethesda United Methodist Church (Middletown, DE).

Mr. Beach has served faithfully throughout the United Methodist connection. He has the distinction of having been one the youngest conference lay leaders in the denomination. He served as the Conference Lay Leader and as Chair of the Nominations Committee of the Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference. He is presently a member of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry assigned to its Division on Ordained Ministry, Racial-Ethnic Cross-Racial and Cross Cultural Lead Team, and the Culture of Call Task Force.

Mr. Beach earned a Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts from the University of Phoenix as well as an Associate of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Chesapeake College (Wye Mills, MD) and has completed courses in Christian Education, Youth Ministry, and Methodist History at Wesley Theological Seminary (Washington D.C.).

Demetrio comes with a passionate love for Jesus Christ, the church and the world. His joy for ministry with people of all ages will help us take the next step in strengthening our age-level ministries. He has also demonstrated a cultural competency that I have no doubt will encourage and model for us how to reach out to those who have yet to experience the life-giving love of God.

Let us pray for Demetrio as he prepares to come to serve Christ Jesus among us.

Peace,

Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño
Los Angeles Area Resident Bishop
The United Methodist Church
