Discipleship Ministries' Top Executive Battles Cancer
The Rev. Junius B. Dotson, the top executive of Discipleship Ministries, told his staff and board Jan. 28 that he is battling pancreatic cancer.
However, he also stressed that he plans to keep serving The United Methodist Church as he combats the disease.
“Despite the low percentage of survivors, I am determined to fight,” he said in a statement. “I intend to beat the odds. I also plan on working as long as the Lord allows.”
Dotson, 55, holds multiple denominational leadership roles in addition to helming Discipleship Ministries since July 2016.
