[ARCHIVED] Danville United elects two pastors as leaders for 2014

Rev. Ron Johnson, left, and Rev. John Carroll

The Rev. Ron Johnson was elected Thursday night to serve as chairman of the Danville United Community Relations Coalition. The Rev. John Carroll was elected vice chairman. Johnson is pastor at Holbrook Presbyterian Church; Carroll, First Baptist Church.

Both will serve one-year terms.

The meeting was held in the Barkhouser Auditorium at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research on Slayton Avenue.

The chairman presides over meetings, with the vice chairman presiding in the absence of the chairman.

Danville City Council voted unanimously in October to create the coalition, which is known as “Danville United.” The coalition provides a means for networking, information sharing and strategy development to make Danville a more tolerant, friendly and welcoming community to all regardless of race, gender, religion, creed, ethnicity, nationality, or economic status.

Membership is open to all individuals and organizations but requires an application. To join, submit a membership form to the city manager’s office, which is located on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building on Patton Street, or register online at www.danvilleunited.org.
