John Wesley once wrote, “I continue to dream and pray about a revival of holiness in our day that moves forth in mission and creates authentic community in which each person can be unleashed through the empowerment of the Spirit to fulfill God's creational intentions” (How To Pray: The Best of John Wesley on Prayer).

Let’s Follow John Wesley’s Lead

Back when John Wesley founded our Methodist tradition along with his brother and friends, people used to call them the “Holy Club.” This name was used to connect them to their covenant with God, and the understanding that their faith could bring transformation to the world. A big part of early Methodism was individuals and groups sharing their resources and blessings with the needy. Many years later, we find ourselves with an opportunity to carry on that tradition set forth by Jesus and John Wesley. We are invited to get back to our roots and recognize the opportunities God gives us for the transformation of the world. In short, we can answer the call to be part of a “Holy Club” once more.

Join the INM Holy Club

This year, our Wisconsin Conference mission project is Imagine No Malaria (INM) – the incredible effort of the global UMC to raise $75 million to end deaths and suffering from malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa. And I invite you to get involved in this life-saving campaign. Over the past few months, I have been asking leaders of our Conference to consider making a multi-year pledge or one-time gift of $5,000 or more, and to join our “INM Holy Club” of donors. And I extend the invitation to you. I am looking for 100 individuals or families across the Conference who would be willing to join at this level.

Let’s Return to Our Missional Roots

This year has brought many exciting changes for the future of our Conference – from the re-organization of the districts to the re-evaluation of our connection and future through Imagine Wisconsin Anew. But some of the greatest change has happened at the local church level – in the hearts and minds of people across the Conference as they, and their congregations, get involved in the extraordinary ministry of Imagine No Malaria. One thing I personally have witnessed and heard from others over the past few months: INM blesses the giver as much as it blesses the recipient. And as lives are saved in Africa, we are returning to our missional roots – in the Wisconsin Conference and all across our denomination.

Just in the last eight years, malaria deaths have been cut in half. Be part of this incredible change.

In God's Hands,

Bishop Hee-Soo Jung
