A Message from Bishop Malone


I encourage all clergy and churches to continue to be in conversation and in prayer as we seek a Way Forward to maintain and strengthen the unity of The United Methodist Church and to stay focused on our vision to be disciples, make disciples and mature disciples of Jesus Christ; to be God’s agents of transformation in our communities and throughout the world; and to be bold and courageous leaders in reaching new people, younger people and a more diverse people.
