My hope for The United Methodist Church going into the Special called Session of 2019 is that we will be able to build upon the foundation that God has already laid, and that we as United Methodists will truly be biblically centered and able to do even more for our world in His name.
The Mississippi Annual Conference—empowered by love, generosity, justice and apprenticeship—forms spiritual leaders, faith communities and connections so more disciples of Jesus Christ transform the world.
