Roma Wyatt is retiring on March 29 after ten years with the World Methodist Council. An employee at the Council headquarters in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, Wyatt served as an assistant to former General Secretary Dr. George Freeman as well as current General Secretary Ivan Abrahams. Roma’s work duties also included communications, office management and assisting in assembling the minutes of during and after Council meetings.
“After working for the Council for the past ten years and being in the workforce since 1964, I think it’s time for me to step back and enjoy my life and my family,” said Wyatt.
In Wyatt’s place, the Council has employed Barbara Bowser to replace her.
“The last ten years of working with the Council has given me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and assist them in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I wouldn’t trade this experience for the world,” says Wyatt.
In her retirement Roma plans to move to the Nashville, Tennessee area to spend time with her first grandchild.
A retirement ceremony is planned for Mrs. Wyatt during the Council’s Steering Committee meeting in Rio de Janeiro.
