I am very passionate about Imagine No Malaria and the commitment of The United Methodist Church to raise $75 million for this effort. It’s sad to know that one person dies of malaria every 60 seconds from this preventable and treatable disease. But I am proud that the people of The United Methodist Church have joined this historic and necessary fight against malaria.
As a denomination, we are putting our Faith into Action and the results of our efforts have been incredible to witness. Since the beginning of the Imagine No Malaria campaign in 2008, we have seen the number of malaria deaths cut in half because of the commitment of the people of The United Methodist Church and our network of powerful global partners.
We have begun an exciting journey in the Wisconsin Conference this year – in the effort to raise $1 million for this worthy cause. My wife Im and I have been praying about the Imagine No Malaria campaign, and we are excited to announce our decision to pledge $10,000 to Imagine No Malaria this year. We hope that our gift inspires others to give generously, at whatever level is an extraordinary gift for you and your family.
The Redistricting Task Force is working to produce a model for the Cabinet to rework our current eight districts into five new districts. The change to new districts and an additional District Superintendent will increase our ability to foster deeper relationships, and our capacity for innovation and creativity, and help us build healthy, outward focused ministry to the world. Once the new districts have been announced, we will post information on this page.
