Bishop Julius Trimble is pleased to announce the appointment of Rev. Dr. In Suk Peebles to serve as Conference Superintendent serving the Southeast District. She succeeds Rev. Russ Abel, who will transition to the Northeast and East Districts.

Bishop Trimble said, “I am pleased to welcome to the Indiana Cabinet Rev. Dr. In Suk Peebles. With a wide range of experience on Conference and district boards, In Suk brings a broad range of gifts for leadership in a time of church and societal change. Her commitment to care and strategic collaboration and her experience in connecting with diverse communities will strengthen our overall Extended and Appointive Cabinet work.”

In Suk currently serves at Greenwood UMC and brings with her vast expertise in leadership, serving 21 years in the United States Air Force Reserve (air national guard) as a chaplain, retiring in 2019 as lieutenant colonel.

About her new role, In Suk said, “I am looking forward to building relationships with people in the Southeast District with inquiries, lively conversations, and breathing together life into new possibilities.”

She holds degrees in English and Literature from Woosuk University in South Korea and Master of Divinity from Christian Theological Seminary. She has finished her coursework for a Doctor of Ministry degree, also at Christian Theological Seminary, and will receive her DMin later this year.

In addition to serving parishes across the state, In Suk has served on the Indiana Conference Finance and Administration, the South Indiana Conference Board of Pensions, and the Indiana Conference Board of Ordained Ministry.

In Suk is married to David, an attorney, and they have two children, Sunny and Faith. She is a self-proclaimed “news junky” on global affairs and enjoys “healthy discussions with my husband while reading the Sunday New York Times and Wall Street Journal after Sunday morning worship (and a nap).”
