Bishop Ward and Bishop Fairley share their thoughts and reflect on their experiences at Pilgrimage 2019.
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ.
Pilgrimage 19 has been a blast. The Youth Storm Fund topped $500,000, all the way to $560,000 and counting. Bishop Leonard Fairley from Red Bird and Kentucky has been here and preached powerfully. Welcome home, Bishop Fairley.
Indeed it is a wonderful joy to be home, to journey through the ideal of the grace of God with people who taught me how to be a gracious person. It’s just amazing. I can’t find words to describe what I’ve seen, what I’ve heard out of the young people. They are leaders that are leading our church into the future that God has promised and I’m just grateful to give witness and to see it.
The North Carolina Conference continues to rejoice in ministry with all people and in this moment, we rejoice in ministry particularly with the young.
