Evelyn Warren Chosen New Communications Director

Evelyn Warren has been named the Mountain Sky Communications Director. She will begin her work with us as of March 1.

She is well known in United Methodist circles, most recently for assisting with the creation of the “Where Love Lives” campaign for the Western Jurisdiction. She has held interim staff positions and chief consultant to several United Methodist agencies and projects, including United Methodist Communications, General Board of Global Ministries, United Methodist Women, Discipleship Ministries, and the United Methodist Publishing House.

In her work with the General Board of Global Ministries she generated millions for a #Giving Tuesday campaign. She co-created a Center for eCommerce Excellence for best practice sharing among CMOs and COOs of large corporations. She has been director of communications for Uniting Methodists, working for “fairness and change” in the UMC.

Innovating, visionary, adaptability are words that she’s used to describe her work of deep strategic thinking, listening, interpreting and creating.

“I am excited to welcome Evelyn to the Mountain Sky Conference,” said Bishop Oliveto. “She has the gifts and skills to help us deepen our identity as a conference, tell our local church stories more powerfully, and connect the needs of the local church with the resources of the conference.”

Building on her Bachelor of Science in Communications degree from Florida State University, Tallahassee, Evelyn has twice been awarded Best in Class for an Integrated Campaign by the United Methodist Association of Communicators and an Award of Excellence by the Religious Communicators Council. She’s been a Communication Co-Chair of the Religion Communication Congress and a long-time Advisor to the AiRS Foundation.
 
“I am thrilled to be selected as Communications Director and to find a new home in the Mountain Sky Conference. Starting something new is always much more fulfilling with the support of amazing people who welcome my gifts and contributions. Together, I am confident we will produce strong results for the conference.”
