COLUMBUS, OHIO-The Allegheny West Conference Executive Committee today selected William Cox to serve as President. He replaces Fredrick Russell who accepted a call to serve as Senior Pastor of the Berean Seventh-day Adventist Church in Atlanta.
Elder Cox is a graduate of Oakwood University (Huntsville, Ala.), New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (New Orleans, La.), where he received a Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Christian Education, and United Theological Seminary (Dayton, Ohio), where he received a Doctor of Ministry. His 32 years of pastoral ministry have been dedicated to populating the kingdom of God. He began his ministry in the Southwest Region Conference, where he spent 17 years, before moving on to the Southern California Conference where he pastored the Berean church in Los Angeles. He spent the past 13 years of his ministry in Allegheny West Conference and currently pastors the Ethan Temple congregation in Dayton.
Upon acceptance of the position, Cox explained to the committee why he believes God led in this decision: "When you do what God has asked you to do, He will make Himself personally responsible for your success."
Join Allegheny West Conference pastors and members as we welcome our new spiritual leader. Let's keep him, his wife, LaTanya, and their family in prayer.
The next conference constituency session is scheduled for 2013.
