Hector A. Burgos of Oasis United Methodist Church in Pleasantville has been appointed the director of worship for the Greater New Jersey Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Burgos has served Oasis United Methodist Church as senior pastor for the last five years. He served in Tuckerton as an associate, leading the Hispanic ministry, for the past eight years.

While Burgos has been at Oasis, a multicultural and bilingual Hispanic congregation, the church has been experiencing growth based on its renewed understanding of its mission and vision for ministry in an urban setting, according to a news release.

In Tuckerton, he has worked with first-generation immigrants providing radical Christian hospitality and a myriad of services to the community.

He is married to Jazelis and is the father of four children.

The director of worship of the Greater New Jersey Conference is responsible for conferencewide worship best practices and formulation of urban ministries strategies. The director works with clergy to develop best-in-class practices in worship and urban ministries and works closely with the district superintendents to coach and lead workshops and cohort groups for clergy.

A critical role is to develop, find, identify and communicate "bright spots" that will materially help the congregations, according to a news release.
