2019 Year in Review
"The year 2019 was undoubtedly exceptional in many ways. The Foundation disbursed more than $4 million to local churches, which provided powerful and life-changing ministries for those churches and communities. Additionally, grants were made with a focus on scholarships, clergy and lay leadership development, and social justice issues. The Foundation is proud to be a partner with local churches, individuals, and the Annual Conference in offering Jesus Christ on behalf of Methodists in Arkansas. As the Foundation's Board of Directors continues to provide exceptional leadership and keep up with the denomination, the decision was made to change our name to The Methodist Foundation for Arkansas. Our name has changed, but our mission remains the same, “to create and administer permanent charitable endowment funds to strengthen and expand Methodist ministries for Arkansas.” As our denomination faces significant changes, the Foundation wants to continue serving all branches that emerge in the future. My hope and prayer is that 2020 will bring you many blessings."
