Two hundred years ago John Stewart, an African American farmer in Ohio, began a ministry to the Wyandot tribe of Native Americans. This humble beginning even then reflected the “from everywhere to everywhere” understanding of global missions that is leading us into the 21st century.
We in Oregon and Idaho are the direct descendants of that mission movement. As we mark the 200th anniversary of Methodist global ministry the Oregon-Idaho Global Ministry Team is bringing a Bicentennial celebration to three regional locations in the fall of 2019. It will be a celebration of our history, but also a chance for individuals and churches to look to the future as we share workshops on current mission opportunities though workshops and information offered by our mission leaders.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Benjamin Hartley, Professor of Christian Mission at George Fox University.
