Elder Darriel Hoy, the first Communications Director for the Office for Regional Conference Ministries (ORCM) and the Regional Conference Retirement Plan (RCRP), has accepted a call to the Southwest Region Conference to serve as pastor of the Faith Seventh-day Adventist Church (Baton Rouge, LA) and the Morning Star Seventh-day Adventist Church (Lafayette, LA).
Elder Hoy came to ORCM/RCRP from the Nevada-Utah Conference, where she served as the Youth Ministries Director, Children’s Ministries Director, and Mentor Pastor. Prior to that, Elder Hoy served as a pastor, Community Ministries Director, and Youth Ministries Director for the Central States Conference. She also launched an urban ministry in Baltimore, MD in partnership with the Allegheny East Conference, Columbia Union, and North American Division at the onset of her ministerial career.
Elder Hoy is credited for being used of God in several initiatives at ORCM / RCRP: the upgrading of the technology for the “First Sabbath” series, the enhancement of our annual Ministry Connections Career Fair for Oakwood University students, coordinating Regional Blood Drives nationally in partnership with the American Red Cross, and leading out in the technology for the first hybrid ORCM / RCRP Winter Officers Meeting in Destin, Florida.
Elder Hoy will depart ORCM and RCRP towards the end of May. We thank her for her outstanding service and wish her well as she returns to her first love – pastoring.
We now begin the search for a new Communications Director and hope to complete the search process by mid-May to early June. If you have an interest in the position, please forward your resume and references to: Dana.Edmond@adventistregionalministries.com.
