2015 Red Bird Missionary Conference

The 47th gathering of the Red Bird Missionary Conference occurred May 16 at Hope United Methodist Church and the campus of Henderson Settlement in Frakes, Ky.

The Rev. Robert Amundsen preached the opening worship service, which included recognition of members of local churches who died during the last year.

Bishop G. Lindsey Davis led the conference in a one-day business session. He preached at the Mission Night service where more than $4,900 was raised for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) as it helps with the Ebola crisis.

The conference also participated in the recognition of Rev. Steven Riddle as an associate member of the Red Bird Conference.

The Rev. Farley Stuart was elected clergy delegate for General Conference. Charlotte Davis was voted lay delegate. Marilyn Osborne was picked to represent the laity for Southeast Jurisdictional Conference, with Glenn Saylor as alternate. Amundsen was elected clergy delegate for that event. The Rev. Greg Wingo will be the alternate clergy delegate.

The Conference also approved the nomination of Stuart for the episcopacy in the Southeast Jurisdiction.
