Rev. Daniel T. Gilmore - District Superintendent
General Superintendent Gustavo A. Crocker announced the election of Daniel T. Gilmore as superintendent of the Northern Michigan District.
Elected April 23 on the fifth ballot, Gilmore replaces Wayne Brown, who retired from the position in December after 13 years.
Gilmore pastored the Charlevoix Church of the Nazarene and was the Northern Michigan District Secretary. He bagin his new assignment May 23, 2016.
"My wife, Jackie, and I were overwhelmed and deeply humbled by the action of the 31st Northern Michigan District Assembly," Daniel said. " Many feelings and emotions competed within us as we sought the Lord for clear confirmation as to whether this is His will for our lives and for the Northern Michigan District. After prayer and seeking prayerful counsel from our denominational leadership, we came to the determined purpose to step through this door of the unknown. As a churchman, I believe that God the Holy Spirit directs through His Church. Though many questions abound and even though a continued (at times overwhelming) sense of insufficiency and amazement persists, we believe we must obey and take up this mantle. Please keep us and our district family in your prayers!"
In our Savior's Service
Rev. Dan Gilmore
