Episcopal Office Transitions


Bishop Hee-Soo Jung is pleased to announce that current Assistant to the Bishop, Rev. Dr. Dan R. Dick will be appointed July 1 to People’s United Methodist Church in Oregon, Wisconsin.  Dan served as Bishop Jung’s assistant from 2015.  Dan came to the Wisconsin Conference in 2009 from the General Board of Discipleship in Nashville, Tennessee, assuming the role of Director of Connectional Ministries.  We celebrate this next phase of ministry for Dan and his wife, Barbara, truly gifted partners who have served the Wisconsin Conference faithfully.


Following the announcement of Dan’s departure, Bishop Jung is delighted to announce the passing of the mantle to the next Dan, Rev. Dan Schwerin, current lead pastor of First UMC in Waukesha, where he has served for the past fourteen years.  Dan served as District Superintendent in the Metro South, and the Metro North and South Districts from 2002-2007.  Dan will step into the Assistant to the Bishop position July 1.  Dan has served as chair of the Conference Episcopacy Committee and is an Episcopal candidate for the upcoming North Central Jurisdictional Conference.  We are so happy to welcome Dan and his wife, Julie, to the Wisconsin Conference Center staff family.
