Humble, who assumed her conference position last summer, announced her decision to step down early in a letter dated Feb. 6, sent to friends and members of the conference.

“After much prayer and conversation with my husband, we have come to the conclusion that my role has become too burdensome for me to finish out the final months of my contract,” Humble wrote.

The conference board of directors must decide how it will fill the leadership position.

“I ask,” Humble said, “that you please join me in prayer for our South Central Conference Board of Directors in this next chapter, who has so impressed me at our retreat this January with their integrity, their work ethic, and their deep desire to do what is best for you and Christ’s Church.”
