Sean Lee to become new GNJ Associate Superintendent

April 23, 2024 |

The Rev. Sean Seunghyun Lee, pastor of Cross Keys United Methodist Church in Williamstown, NJ, is appointed to become an associate superintendent serving the Greater New Jersey Conference’s Coastal Plains Region, beginning July 1. He has served three GNJ previous churches and has degrees from Methodist Theological University in Seoul, Korea and Drew Theological School in New Jersey. He is “passionate about developing next generation ministry, leading inspiring worship and preaching the gospel.”

“We are excited about Sean Lee joining us as the new associate superintendent,” said the Rev. Glenn Conaway, Coastal Plains Region team leader and superintendent of the Delaware Bay District. “Sean has been an effective pastor and leader who brings knowledge, skills and passion that will help equip pastors and churches. He already has worked with Cross Racial Cross Cultural leadership development, been trained in coaching, and has a desire to raise up the next generation of transformational leaders that we need in the church. We look forward to having him share his gifts and  creativity both in the region and across the annual conference.”

Bishop John Schol described Lee’s new role as “critical to the development of transformational leaders and vital congregations. Sean brings a deep faith, a keen mind and a servant’s heart as we continue to serve God, the church and the world.”

Lee succeeds the Rev. Sammy Arroyo, who left the position in March to become Assistant Director of Global Services and Latinx Programs at Princeton Theological Seminary.
