Annual Conference is a conference that happens annually. – Perd Hapley

This year’s Annual Conference was at the Coldwater Free Methodist Church, which actually serves well-tempered water thanks to modern technology.  Many Rev’s* and Del’s** were there to observe this yearly gathering of Free Methodists in Southern Michigan.  A grand time of celebration, encouragement, and seeing friends who serve together in ministry.

Every year I come away feeling a ton of encouragement and a load of gratitude.  So many of these fine people have helped shape me and continue to do so.  We saw 6 ordinations and heard solid testimonies of how God is doing a new thing in our conference churches.

Sadly I had to miss Lexi’s beach day, but Facebook (when it wasn’t down) told the story through pictures.  Now home for a few hours before heading out to day two.  I look forward with a mix of anticipation and exhaustion.

Sleep is ordained.

 


*Reverends – those who are ordained

** Delegates – those who are elected to represent their particular congregation
