Job Description

The Central Texas, North Texas, and Northwest Texas Conferences, pending approval of the Southcentral Jurisdictional Conference in July, will become one Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. The Selection Committee announces a search for a Media Production Specialist for the newly named Horizon Texas Conference and invites inquiries and resumes for the position. The conference is committed to fostering inclusion, understanding, and respect for diversity within our churches and community. Rooted in our faith-based values, we aim to create an environment where everyone feels welcome, celebrated, and valued.

The Central Texas, North Texas, and Northwest Texas Conferences have been in conversations since early 2023 to explore the process of unification. Throughout the spring and summer of 2023, Bishop Saenz, along with clergy and lay leaders from all three conferences, worked together on a plan to unify the three conferences. Working together as one body with a unified vision and strategic priorities, the Horizon Texas Conference will be well-positioned to multiply Jesus followers following the widely anticipated adoption of new conference boundaries by the summer of 2024.
