About 160 United Methodists gathered in Kingsport Aug. 25 to establish the Holston chapter of the Wesleyan Covenant Association, worshiping together and then electing the organization’s first board of directors.

Clergy directors are: Rowland Buck (chair), Sherri Franklin, Chuck Griffin (vice-chair), Brad Scott, Brad Stapleton (secretary) and Russ Young.

Lay directors are: Gregg Benefiel (treasurer), David Bowden, Delisa Hammons, Charles McEntyre, Fielden Sanders and Jeff Weiss.

The gathered group also selected Buck and Weiss to serve as delegates to the WCA’s Global Assembly Nov. 3 in Marietta, Ga.
