Our pastor, Rev. Gary Meekins, has been nominated to represent the clergy of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference at the General Conference of the United Methodist Church in April 2004. The election of delegates will be conducted during the Annual Conference at Messiah College. Held every four years, the General Conference approves church law and takes stands on issues of the day on behalf of the 9 million-member United Methodist Church. Nearly 1,000 delegates from around the world make up the legislative body.
