Bishop Elaine J.W. Stanovsky intends to appoint Rev. Troy Lynn Carr as a planter/innovator in the Yesler Neighborhood of Seattle, effective July 1, 2020.
Rev. Carr will continue in a half-time appointment as pastor of Seattle: Grace United Methodist Church, where she has previously served in a full time appointment. Carr’s new work will be to engage the Yesler neighborhood and build on relationships and connections established in the community. The hope of the assessment work during the 2020/2021 appointment year is the initiation of a new church project in 2021 that celebrates a new expression of Methodism in the Black tradition.
