The Rev. Jay Williams, who took over from the Rev. Cecil Williams as lead pastor less than a year ago, announced his resignation Sunday from Glide Memorial United Methodist Church.
“All of us have appreciated the chance to get to know Rev. Jay as a colleague, a friend and a pastor,” the church wrote on Facebook. “Our community has benefited immensely from his intellect, his faith and his kindness. We wish him happiness and fulfillment as he follows his heart and continues his journey.”
Before taking the helm as lead pastor at Glide in July 2017, Williams, who is not related to the Rev. Cecil Williams, was the lead pastor at Union United Methodist Church in Boston’s South End for five years.
