After nearly 12 years of service as Potomac’s Vice President for Administration, Jorge Ramirez announced that he has accepted a call to the Arizona Conference as Executive Secretary.
“Jorge and I have worked closely together on some very difficult issues over the years,” said Bill Miller, president. “In every instance, he demonstrated the highest level of personal integrity and unwavering commitment and loyalty to Potomac Conference. During his tenure, Jorge’s gift for structure and detail have been realized in three major areas: the merger of the conference and the corporation into one entity known as the Potomac Conference Corporation, the creation of a system for accurate record keeping of all official documents and the implementation of our child protection program. All three are vital to the operational efficiency of the organization.”
Ramirez began his pastoral ministry in 1985 in the Southeastern California Conference, where he served as a pastor for 22 years before accepting the invitation to serve as Potomac’s Vice President for Administration in 2007. While in Potomac, Ramirez continued his formal education and completed his Doctor of Ministry degree from Andrews University (Mich.) in the area of church growth.
In his new role, beginning April 1, Ramirez will assist the Arizona Conference in creating systems that will enable the corporation to accomplish its mission. He will take on the added responsibilities of leading the ministerial team and directing all evangelism campaigns. “My greatest passion is serving a God who has the power to restore any broken relationship,” he says. “I look forward to continuing my ministry and seeing the hand of God at work.”
