By LaVerne Henderson

The Potomac Conference Executive Committee recently asked Raymond Pichette, DMin, to serve as Vice President for Pastoral Ministry. “This new role will create a more personalized focus on our pastors,” says conference president Bill Miller. Pichette has served the conference as assistant to the president since 2003, and was senior pastor of New Market (Va.) church prior to that. “My heart is always at the local church,” says Pichette, who has nearly 25 years of pastoral experience. “That’s the frontline of our mission.” Pichette earned BA in Theology and a Masters of Divinity from Andrews University, in Berrien Springs, Mich., and a DMin from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif.
