This year’s ordination service for full elders, associate, and provisional members of the Arkansas Annual Conference took place in a very scaled-down, but no less meaningful ceremony on Sunday, Aug. 30 at St. James United Methodist Church in Little Rock.

Rather than a room full of hundreds of fellow clergy, family members, and friends, the 2020 Ordination Service was limited to no more than 50 people in St. James’ sanctuary and was live-streamed for the rest of the Arkansas Conference to view at a safe distance.

This year’s ordinands were Andrea Cummings, Daniel Read, Doug Phillips, Jonathon Bevil, Matthew Carter, Taylor Loy, and Brad Moore. Kenny Lee was ordained as an associate member, and Lyn Poplin and Chase Burns were commissioned as provisional members.
