Bishop Tracy S. Malone has named Kimberly Green lay leader of the East Ohio Conference. Effective July 1 she will succeed Greg Rentsch, who is stepping down after serving six years in the position.
“Kimberly brings a strong passion and personal faith commitment to Christian discipleship and mission,” Malone said. “Her various leadership roles in the local church, and at the district- and Conference-levels demonstrate her ability to work and serve with lay and clergy to advance the Church’s mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
Green is the lay leader at Celebration United Methodist Church (North Coast District) and a lay member to Annual Conference. She also is co-chair of the North Coast District Strategy Committee, a member of both the North Coast District Leadership Development Committee and the North Coast District Strategic Funding Committee, and serves on the Conference Committee on Episcopacy.
“I am very excited and honored to serve in a greater capacity in The United Methodist Church,” Green said. “It is prayer that gives me the ability to be a bold and courageous leader. I am committed to do all that God has blessed me to do in making disciples for Jesus Christ.”
The director of Nursing Services at The MetroHealth System in Cleveland, Green is involved in several ministry initiatives that link her life’s work in healthcare with helping families and communities thrive. She is passionate about serving and helping others outside the church walls.
Green earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from The Ohio State University and a Master of Science in Nursing, with a concentration in Leadership and Management, from University of Phoenix.
She and her husband Anthony are the parents of two adult daughters.
