Bishop Sue Haupert-JohnsonFarmville United Methodist Church will be hosting Virginia Conference Episcopal leader, Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson, on Sunday March 10 at the 10 a.m. worship. “Bishop Sue” was appointed to the Virginia Annual Conference in 2022, after having served as the resident bishop of the North Georgia Annual Conference from 2016 to 2022.

She was a federal law clerk and a litigator with the Tampa law firm of Carlton, Fields before she answered her call to ministry.
