District Superintendent Announcement

Previous Bishops


Dear Beloved Sisters and Brothers:

Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ!

I am pleased to announce that Reverend Julia Yeon-Hee Yim will be appointed as District Superintendent of the Long Island East District effective July 1, 2016. Rev. Adrienne Brewington will complete her 8-year term as Long Island East District Superintendent in 2016. I know that Rev. Yim will follow the legacy that is left to her with similar zeal and commitment.

Rev. Yim has served a variety of churches, has held many district- and conference-level leadership responsibilities and most of all brings a passion to serve Christ and the people of God. She is respected by clergy and laity as one who truly loves Jesus. She currently serves as member of the NEJ Board of Ordained Ministry and as chair of the NY/CT District Committee on Ordained Ministry. Rev. Yim is a graduate of Barnard College and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

During this transition please pray for Reverend Yim, for the congregation of the Warwick United Methodist Church, and for the Long Island East District.

In Christ's love,

Bishop Jane Allen Middleton
