The annual pastoral appointment-making season has begun for the Eastern PA Conference Cabinet, as they prayerfully discern and carefully determine clergy leadership for EPAUMC churches. That inevitably will mean some changes and transitions in pastoral appointments, especially as some clergy retire and others are licensed, commissioned and ordained.
