When someone reaches the age of 100, we refer to them as a centenarian, and we celebrate this tremendous milestone with much fanfare. This year, the Potomac Conference will turn 100. And as a conference, we, too, will take the opportunity to celebrate. But our celebration will take on a little different tone than merely observing that we reached this important landmark in our journey as a conference.

In a rapidly evolving digital world, organizations—including faith-based ones like the Potomac Conference—are embracing technology to further their mission and efficiency. One significant step in this direction is transitioning from paper documents to digital records.

Potomac has embarked on a remarkable journey by digitizing more than a million pages from its Human Resources Department, a monumental feat that has streamlined access to critical information. With the simple touch of a button, a robust digital platform called Laserfiche, has enabled staff to retrieve information quickly.

The Potomac Conference is pleased to introduce Williams Ovalle—a dedicated and passionate leader with a heart for young people—as its new youth director. With a decade of experience within the Potomac Conference, his journey to this role has been nothing short of inspiring.

Born in Guatemala, Ovalle’s story is about determination and faith. He immigrated to the United States at the age of 16, seeking a better future. In June 2013, Ovalle answered the call to become a part of the Potomac Conference family as pastor of the Manassas (Va.) Battlefield Spanish church. Since then, he has tirelessly dedicated himself to nurturing the spiritual growth of young individuals.
