“We are grateful for Myron’s leadership within GBHEM and we look forward to our continued relationship in his new role. His combination of maturity and pastoral intelligence is a great gift to The United Methodist Church.” said Rev. Dr. Kim Cape, general secretary, GBHEM.

Wingfield received his Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology, Emory University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion from Emory and Henry College.

For nine years, he held leadership roles on the Cal-Pac Board of Ordained Ministry and was instrumental in leading the San Diego District in the formation and implementation of seven mission areas for the collaboration of clergy and congregations in mission and ministry.

"Myron both understands our Cal-Pac Conference culture and brings the perspective of the General Church, both nationally and internationally. He brings a wealth of administration experience as well as program ministry gifts. I am confident that God will lead us into greater ministry vitality in and through his leadership.” said Bishop Grant J. Hagiya.
