1460. The district conference may elect or employ or may authorize the district board of administration to elect or employ a district director of spiritual formation (2016 Wesleyan Discipline:1180:35e or see 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:1483 if a district Sunday school director is desired instead). The term of office, amenability, and other regulations as a district departmental officer are set forth in 2016 Wesleyan Discipline:1275-1292, except that when the district director of spiritual formation is elected or employed by the district board of administration that board shall have authority to determine the term of office.
