The Dr. Glenn L. Ethridge Scholarship Endowment Announced
More than 700 North Georgia Conference clergy and members of the Board of Ministry gathered online July 16 for their first-ever virtual Clergy Executive Session. Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson presided over the session and was joined by Director of the Center for Clergy Excellence Rev. Dr. Bernice Kirkland, Conference Secretary Rev. Donn Ann Weber, Chair of the Board of Ministry Rev. Dr. Julie Boone, and Executive Assistant to the Bishop Rev. Dr. Terry Walton.
Attendees of the session sang, prayed, celebrated, and cast electronic votes using a secure online meeting and voting platform. The same system will be used for the virtual Annual Conference session August 29.
A highlight of the session was the announcement of the Dr. Glenn L. Ethridge Scholarship Endowment for United Methodist students with priority given to those attending Gammon Theological Seminary and Candler School of Theology.
"Glenn has served with integrity and grace for many years as the Chair of the Board of Ministry and he exemplifies the finest leadership qualities of the annual conference," said Boone. "The Board wants to express their gratitude in a way that would impact new clergy in the years ahead and so, through the generosity of Board members, local churches, individuals, family and foundations, we would like to present through the Georgia United Methodist Foundation, the Dr. Glenn L. Ethridge Scholarship Endowment."
