MPC District Office

Please mark your calendar for Thursday, May 23rd, for a Clergy Care Event for all pastors in the MPC District. Rev. Allison Posell will be here to lead. Allison is an ordained deacon in our conference as well as a mental health professional. She has provided a wide range of ministry leadership in our conference, including the Antioch Project and the Bishop's Response Team. She is a long time friend in whom I have a great deal of confidence. Her understanding of the pressures of ministry, as well as the stresses of post-hurricane recovery, will help us better understand and care for ourselves so we can care for others.
Because this is so important, we will have two meetings (morning and evening) in order to accommodate schedules. Please plan on attending either the daytime meeting May 23rd at  10:00 AM at Forest Park UMC in Panama City, or the evening meeting on May 23rd at 6:00 PM at Marianna FUMC.  I'm asking every pastor to attend one of these events. I hope you will trust me on this, not just as DS, but as a fellow clergy who has been deeply impacted both by Hurricane Michael, the continuing conflict in the larger UMC, and all the usual stresses of ministry. We need to be the best we can be in order to be pastors to our struggling churches and communities.
There is no cost to you for this event. Lunch/dinner will be provided. Please RSVP by May 17th so we will have a number for our meal catering. You can simply reply to this email or call the district office at 850-740-3166. Join me as we find God's grace for healing and growing together.
