Ethan Temple Pastor Named to Allegheny West Conference Presidency
Story by Bryant Taylor
Allegheny West Conference Executive Committee selected William Cox on Sunday to serve as president. He replaces Fredrick Russell who accepted a call to serve as senior pastor of the Berean church in Atlanta.
Cox is a graduate of Oakwood University (Ala.), and received a Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Christian Education from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (La.). He holds a Doctor of Ministry from the United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio). 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 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.”
Members are encouraged to keep Cox, his wife, LaTanya, and their family in prayer.
The next conference constituency session is scheduled for 2013.
