This year's Annual Conference will be held at Lakeside Ohio, June 7th through 11th. This year's theme is Love in Action: Developing Leaders. Please leave your comments, observations and feedback of the 2009 Annual Conference on this blog.

Buinesss opening

Poorly planned prestaged anouncemet of events at opening of business. Need to have a better planed COMBINED schedule showing ALL events and business. MAPS of locations where of where things are located at Lakeside.

Big Event...games, fun, fellowship...water balloon volleyball???

That's right...water balloon volleyball! Join us this year down by the lake on Tuesday evening around 6 pm for the "Big Event"

The Big Event is designed to allow our members and families to get together and have some fun! There will be games and prizes for kids and adults of all ages.

Ever pull a duck from a water pond? Ever bounce in an inflatable jumper? Ever walk through a mine field of fun? Ever challenge a friend to a bungee run? Ever get a chance to dunk your D.S. in dirty lake water? Either way these are just a few of the games and activities that will be a part of the Big Event on Tuesday evening.

So...after a long, hard day in Hoover Auditorium come down to the lake for an evening of fun and games with your family and friends.

This year the crew and staff of our West Ohio Camps will be running the games at the Big Event. These are experts on making things fun and exciting while actually teaching leadership skills...this is the perfect formula for guaranteeing fun for EVERYONE!

On your way to the lake...don't forget to stop at the Ministry Fair to gather information, learn and meet people in leadership roles within the conference.

See you there!

Developing Leaders

This year's annual conference theme is exciting for me, because, in part, it touches so close to home. I am currently finishing up my first year of Seminary in Washington, DC at Wesley Theological Seminary. West Ohio has been supporting my call for a long time, but this past year it has also helped me financially as I've grown as a leader for God and the UMC. I know that this focus matters to many people across the conference.

As we develop leaders both financially and through our time and encouragement, we are investing in hope! At every level it is committed leaders who make ministry happen so that together we can truly live out our mission of Making Disciples for the Transformation of the World. I look forward to living into this mission with all of you in the years ahead.

I miss West Ohio and pray for the ministries there regularly. God Bless you in your life, in your call, and in your mission to all the world.

Blessings and Peace,
Jennifer Burns
