EDUCATION AND TRAINING OFFERED FOR VOLUNTEER LEADERS FOR BISHOP'S PARTNERS IN MISSION
As you might know, Bishop's Partners in Mission is an initiative of Bishop Jeremiah Park and supported by the Susquehanna Conference to raise funds for the United Methodist Church's "Imagine No Malaria" campaign (to save lives from the scourge of malaria in Africa) and to pay off the mortgage of Mission Central so that its funds can be used for doing what it does best - providing God's resources for meeting human need and being an invaluable partner for churches in mission.
We are in the process of building a leadership team in every district of our conference to be ambassadors for Bishop's Partners in Mission. We are delighted that nine volunteer leaders have stepped forward. We need more - both as district ambassadors and as local ambassadors, especially in State College District and Williamsport District.
Two FREE trainings will be offered for laity or clergy interested in serving as ambassadors in this life-saving and hope-restoring initiative:
- July 29 from 9 a.m. - noon
- August 4 from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Both training sessions will be held at the Susquehanna Conference Office, 303 Mulberry Dr., Mechanicsburg, PA 17050. Attendance at either one will give you the knowledge, tools, and access to resources to initiate fundraising events at your church and district.
If you have a heart for missions and impacting lives, and you would like to be an ambassador, we invite you to attend either training event.
717-766-7441 ext. 3108.
If you are interested but cannot make either event, please contact Dilip to set up a training event in your district.
For God is able to do far more than we can imagine or think, according to his power that is at work within us ... (Ephesians 3:20 a).
