A Salem church and one Daleville are among those affected in the annual rotation of United Methodist pastors. They “itinerate” or are up for a move every year, but most remain for several years, perhaps as long as 15.
At Calvary Church in East Salem, the Rev. Rebecca M. Wheeler will take up her duties on July 1. She also will serve West End United Methodist in Southwest Roanoke in a Cooperative Parish arrangement.
At St. Mark’s Church in Daleville, the Rev. Dr. Justin White is going to St. Mark’s Church in Richmond. He will be succeeded by the Rev. Terry L. Clark.
The Rev. Benjamin Lockhart Jr. will come out of retirement to serve the Catawba Circuit. – compiled by correspondent Frances Stebbins.
