10-19-11 Chesapeake Conference Elects new Executive Secretary

Feitosa comes with great talents and background

The Chesapeake Conference Executive Committee elected Kleyton Feitosa conference executive secretary today. After taking a few days to make a final decision, Feitosa accepted the position.
The position opened when Rick Remmers became conference president this past August. “After a time of prayer, the committee considered several candidates who could serve as executive secretary,” said conference president Rick Remmers. “The discussion revealed a number of talents that Kleyton Feitosa would bring to the position, and the committee expressed strong support for his candidacy. Elder Feitosa will bring many assets to the officer group.”

Feitosa served for five years as pastor of the Waldorf, Maryland, church before coming to the conference office in 2009 as director of ministries development and evangelism coordinator. His 15+ years in ministry includes working as a senior, associate and youth pastor, as well as a teacher and school chaplain in Brazil and the United States. A native of Brazil, Feitosa enjoys ministering to different cultures and is fluent in Portuguese, English and Spanish. He holds
a  bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s degree in religion with an emphasis in mission and ministry studies from Andrews University, and is currently finishing requirements for a Doctor of Ministry degree in evangelism and church growth.

Feitosa is married to Delma (Garcia) Feitosa, who is an educator and counselor, but currently a full-time Mom. The couple has two boys, Derek (7) and Malton (5).
