The PEC would like to make the following announcements:
1. The Rev’d Kirk Barker who has been called as Pastor of the New Herrnhut Moravian Church in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands Conference, is unable to proceed to his appointment at this time. This is due to the fact that he has not received the documentation for his Immigration status from the United States authorities. In the interregnum, the PEC has assigned Rev’d Kirk Barker to work with the Spring Gardens Moravian Church in the Antigua Conference, with effect from January 14, 2019. This assignment will continue until his Immigration status is regularized.
