Just over three months after he was elected President of the Dominica Evangelical Association (DAEC), Francis Marcus, has resigned.
Francis tendered his resignation to the Association and a special meeting of its Executive was held on January 12.
At that meeting Pastor Arlington Wilson was officially appointed Vice President and has been mandated to act in the interim as President until the Annual General Meeting is held at the end of DAEC’s financial year.
Wilson, currently shepherding the flock at the Layou Christian Union Church, has served in several Churches of the Assembly around the island for over 34 years.
He has held several positions on the DAEC Executive, the most recent being that of Executive member.
His contribution to the development of the Association continues to be invaluable.
Francis was appointed President at a meeting of DAEC’s executive held on Thursday, 9th October, 2014.
He replaced the late Bishop Michael “Bill” Daniel who held the position until the time of his passing on August 22, 2014.
At the time of his election Francis said that he was ready for the “awesome task” of advancing the objective of DAEC which is bringing “the body together in a spirit of humility, a bond of peace and to give a sense of direction to the country from a biblical perspective.”
No reasons were given for Francis’ resignation
The other members of the Executive are:
Mrs Anthea Joseph – Secretary
Pastor Cecil Joseph – Treasurer
Mrs Clementina Munro – Assistant Secretary/Treasurer
Pastor Kennedy Dupuis – Member

DAEC said it has scheduled a number of activities for the next few months to include a Grand National rally, meeting with various pastors and prayer meetings with the hope of further strengthening the Christian community.
