Bishop Malone Invites You to be “All In"

“As we begin this new journey of ministry together I come to you hopeful,” said Bishop Tracy S. Malone.  “I have been praying to God on all of our behalf, praying and asking God to pour out a fresh anointing of God’s spirit upon every pastor, every member, every congregation, every office, every committee, and every ministry here in the East Ohio Conference because I know that through Christ all things are possible.”

The bishop offered those words during her message at the four services designed by the conference Episcopacy Committee and the Cabinet to introduce the bishop and her family to East Ohio.

Four Areas of Focus of The United Methodist Church

IMPROVING GLOBAL HEALTH – Knowing that poverty and health are intertwined, The United Methodist Church has become a key player in fighting diseases and promoting initiatives that improve the well-being of individuals and communities.  Learn more.

DEVELOPING PRINCIPLED CHRISTIAN LEADERS – The church needs leaders rooted in Jesus Christ who have a vision for changing the world.  We must reach, and nurture, today’s young people to shape the church’s path into the future. Learn more.

CREATING NEW AND RENEWED CONGREGATIONS – United Methodists are reimagining what it means to be the church, planting new congregations, and revitalizing faith communities. By being relevant and vital, we will draw more people to Christ.  Learn more.
