Annual Conference 2021
Annual Conference 2021
“We are using the oxygen for the patients who have respiratory distress including patients with COVID. We receive a lot of patients with respiratory distress at this period of time. We suspect this may be due to COVID. Usually we refer those patients to another facility since we don't have enough oxygen available at the hospital. Now, we are better able to serve the Haitian people.” - Eugene Maklin MD.
In an effort to “Do No Harm” as well as to ensure that the Ordering of Ministry Service be the high and holy moment that we all desire it to be, the Bishop and Extended Cabinet have made the difficult decision to cancel the service planned on October 11, 2020. Both the 2020 and 2021 classes will be commissioned and ordained next June at Lake Junaluska.
Thanks to your generosity, we have received a total of $9,913.50 for the Annual Conference 2020 Offering. The offering will be evenly divided between the Northern Haiti Mission Connection and UMAR at a gift of $4,956.75 each. Thank you for supporting the mission of these important ministries!
You can still support the AC2020 offering to benefit the ministries of UMAR and the Northern Haiti Mission Connection!
The results from the Annual Conference 2020 Voting Ballot are now available.

Join us for the live stream of Annual Conference 2020!
Every year during our Annual Conference, we pause to recognize outstanding lay and clergy leaders. This year, as part of our COVID-19 response, we will be presenting these awards during a live, online webinar. Please plan to join us by Zoom webinar on Monday, August 3rd, at 7:00 PM for the presentations of the Harry Denman Evangelism Award and the Francis Asbury Award.
As ballots arrive from members of AC2020, the move to a virtual conference is being confirmed. For those with reservations at Lake Junaluska Retreat Center, a few choices have been offered.
