    Upper New York Area Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb has announced that the Rev. Dr. Sherri Rood will be appointed to the office of District Superintendent for an eighth year.

    “After consultation with Dr. Rood and with the members of the Cornerstone District Committee on Superintendency, I am delighted to share that Sherri will continue to provide leadership to the Cornerstone District, the Cabinet and the annual conference for an eighth and final year,” Bishop Webb said. “Sherri is a gift to this annual conference and the work of the Cabinet. Her commitment to Christ and the Church is steadfast. Her leadership as the Dean of the UNY Cabinet over the past three years has made us stronger and more effective. We are blessed to have her continue to serve with us and among us.”

    The normal term for a district superintendent is six years but may be extended up to eight years at the bishop's discretion, in consultation with the Cabinet and the District Committee on Superintendency.

    Rev. Rood said, “I am blessed to serve with the pastors and churches of the Cornerstone District as well as Bishop Webb, the Cabinet, and Conference staff. We have done significant work together in building up the Body of Christ. I look forward to a final year of ministry together as we prepare the Cornerstone District to receive their next superintendent.”
