Video Release of the Africa University Story
Prayers are requested as the Mississippi Annual Conference welcomes the Africa University Choir. The group that consists of eight males and eight females from six countries will perform during the session of annual conference on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at the Jackson Convention Complex in Jackson, MS.
Their itinerary will be available in April. The 2015 Mission Offering received at the annual conference session, will be a gift to Africa University.
Mississippi United Methodists have provided leadership and support for Africa University from its beginning by serving on the committee to find a location for the University; by serving on its board of directors; by providing scholarships for students; and by erecting on a mountain overlooking the campus the United Methodist emblem of the cross and flame.
The great need today is for endowments which will serve the University now and in the future. Bishop James Swanson Sr. is leading the conference in providing ten endowed scholarships of $130,000 each to assure the future of Africa University. Churches and individuals can visit the Mississippi Conference website for more information about The Mississippi-Africa University Partnership. Promotional resources can be located there as well.
