    Editor's Note: The following was sent to United Methodists of Upper New York on behalf of Bishop Héctor on Feb. 26, 2024.

    Dear United Methodists of Upper New York, 

    I am pleased to announce the extension of three District Superintendents appointments for 2024-25.  

    The Reverend Mike Weeden is being extended to an eighth year as Conference Superintendent assigned to the Northern Flow and Mohawk Districts.  

    It is also my intention to extend both the Reverend Debbie Earthrowl and the Reverend Carlos M. Rosa-Laguer to a seventh year. Rev. Earthrowl will continue to serve the Adirondack and Albany Districts. Rev. Rosa-Laguer will continue to serve the Niagara Frontier and Cornerstone Districts. 

    United Methodists of Upper New York are blessed by the leadership of Mike, Debbie, and Carlos. Their gifts and continued call to ministry will provide vital and consistent leadership not only for the districts they serve, but also the cabinet and conference as a whole.  

    I invite you to pray for them as they accept this extension to their leadership roles.  

    In Christ, 

    Bishop Héctor A. Burgos Núñez  
    The United Methodist Church  
    Serving United Methodist of Upper New York
