Bishop Jeremiah Park, Harrisburg Area Bishop in Residence, recently hosted the Northeast Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church at Mission Central.
Bishop Park said, “I am so happy to be able to share with you, this vital ministry that reaches two million people each year for the transformation of the world!”
The Bishops gathered for lunch at the facility for a time of fellowship and education about the work of Mission Central. Learning about Mission Central’s HUB Network, spread across the Northeast United States was an opportunity for the Bishops to see the work of Mission Central connecting locally, nationally and globally.
During lunch, the Bishops viewed the latest Mission Central video, “An Unfolding Story” and afterwards, toured the facility with Rev. Ruth Ward, Mission Central’s Mission Education Coordinator.
Retired Bishop, Neil Irons and Jane Middleton were also in attendance, along with Bishop Mark Webb, former clergy member of the Susquehanna Conference.
Mission Central Executive Director, Rob Visscher said “I am so grateful to have this time with the College of Bishops, we value their leadership across the jurisdiction.”
This event was just one in a several day gathering of the College of Bishops.
