Bridgeforth to meet with Oregon-Idaho MFSA


Oregon-Idaho Methodist Federation for Social Action invites justice-seekers to its spring event, “Why Justice Matters – A conversation with Bishop Cedrick Bridgeforth.” The zoom event will provide a time to hear from Bishop Bridgeforth on justice issues and explore justice in a Wesleyan context.

The two-hour online event will be via Zoom meeting on April 22 at 3:00 PDT/4:00 MDT.

As the church, the country, and the world face new challenges of racial, economic, and gender injustice, how can the church respond with values of compassion, acceptance, and kin-dom? What is the role of the church as an institution, and as individual United Methodists to respond?

Bishop Bridgeforth was elected in 2022 as a bishop in the Western Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church. He is assigned to the Greater Northwest Area including the Oregon-Idaho, Alaska, and Pacific Northwest Conferences. He is an Air Force veteran, served a variety of churches in the California-Pacific Conference, served as a District Superintendent, as president of Black Methodists for Church Renewal (BMCR), and co-convener of the Inter-Ethnic Strategy Development Group.

Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA) is an intersectional social justice nonprofit that mobilizes Justice-Seeking People of Faith to take action on issues of peace, poverty, and people’s rights within the church, the nation, and the world.
