A new year has brought change and new leadership to the South Central Conference. Please join in welcoming and congratulating the new employees at the Conference office.
Kimberly Mann, pastor, has accepted the position of youth director. Mann is no stranger to South Central, and recently served as the associate youth director. Mann has worked in many other facets of the Church as a teacher, chaplain, and much more. She is dedicated to the work of the Gospel. The Conference is excited as she steps into the new role.
A recent graduate of Oakwood University, Dimitri Scavella, pastor, has accepted the position of publishing director at South Central. Bahamian by birth, Scavella has done literature evangelism for many summers and school breaks throughout the United States. He served with the former publishing director, Java Mattison, pastor. Scavella enjoys sharing the Gospel through the literature evangelism ministries. “For me, canvassing is more than just selling books. Each encounter granted me the rare opportunity to deposit a seed of hope, something that would stay with them,” shared Scavella. He is experienced for the position at hand.
Bryant Herbert, pastor, has accepted the call to serve as the associate youth director at South Central. Herbert, a native of Murfreesboro, Tenn., has been pastoring in South Central for more than 10 years. In addition to the associate youth director duties, he also serves as the pastor of the Franklin-Columbia, Tenn., district. As a rising star in the music industry, Herbert knows clearly what many youth and young adults are dealing with, and it fits him well to serve the South Central youth and young adults. The Conference is glad to have him join in the new capacity.
Keela Holliday has joined the South Central office as an accountant on the treasury staff. Holliday obtained her M.B.A. degree from Webster University. Her many years of experience have suited her to serve the constituents of South Central well. Since joining the staff, her commitment to excellence has been a blessing to the treasury team and the rest of the Conference staff. Service is a way of life for her; along with her duties at the Conference, she is the treasurer for the Oaklands Park Church in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Holliday is the mother of five adult children, and she loves spending time with her grandchildren, traveling, and couponing.
Roger R. Wade, pastor, has returned to South Central to serve as the communications and public relations director as of April 1, 2021. Wade has a passion for ministry. Since his call to the organized Church in 1998, he has served the Northeastern, Southern California, Southwest Region, and South Central conferences, and the Mid-America Union. He is known to teach, preach, and write, as well as produce and coordinate many large meetings and events. In the “new normal,” Wade brings new ways to look at communicating in online spaces.
South Central Conference is excited for these changes and new workers. They look forward to the impact these new and returning faces will bring to the table to help finish the work of the gospel.
