BGS appoints new Peru Central District superintendent

by | 17 Oct 2018


José E. David Balcázar Medina was inaugurated as superintendent for the Peru Central District 3 October at the Pueblo Libre Church of the Nazarene in Lima. Field Strategy Coordinator Segundo Rimarachín stood in for General Superintendent David Busic in presiding over the ceremony.

The appointment process began after the sudden passing of the previous superintendent, Josue Fenco, 2 September.

“After a thorough examination of the candidates presented by the [District Advisory Committee] and in consultation with the South America leadership, Rev. Jose David Balcázar was appointed to take the superintendency of the Peru Central District,” Busic said. “Rev. Balcázar is a young leader, country president of the Peru Nazarene Youth International, and member of the South American NYI council. He has had over a decade of pastoral experience and has been a national and international leader and speaker.”

The Board of General Superintendents appointed Balcázar to the position until the 2021 District Assembly. Balcázar’s family, other local pastors, and Lima church members attended the inauguration. 

“[Everyone was] happy to have a new superintendent after the sudden passing of the former superintendent, Reverend Josué Fenco Flores, a month earlier,” said Oscar Suárez, Peru national communications coordinator.

Alberto Zamora, the longest-serving pastor in Peru, prayed for Balcázar and blessed his ministry during the ceremony. Balcázar expressed his gratitude to God and the Church of the Nazarene for giving him the honor to serve Peru as district superintendent.
