North Alabama Conference Bishop William Willimon announced today Rev. Jimmy Aycock has been appointed as senior pastor at ClearBranch UMC. Rev. Aycock has served as senior associate pastor at Asbury UMC in Madison, Ala. for 11 years.
"Jimmy is a dynamic leader in one of our most dynamic congregations," remarked Bishop Willimon. "His work in missions is amazing. ClearBranch is a very special congregation in our Conference, and Jimmy is uniquely qualified to lead this congregation, building on the momentum already achieved. Jimmy is a man of prayer, a gifted preacher of the Word and a person with a passion for missions. I'm sure ClearBranch is in for a great adventure in discipleship under Jimmy's leadership."
Rev. Aycock’s appointment will take effect on January 1, 2012, following the development of a First 90 Day Plan and a time of transition with Rev. Robin Scott, who is leaving ClearBranch UMC to become the Mountain Lakes District Superintendent.
