Imagine what a different world could look like? Imagine the church making a difference? Imagine what YOU can do to make a difference. This interactive breakout will explore how you can help the UMC continue to make the world a better place.
Dish with the Bish
Leader: Bishop LaTrelle Easterling
Our Bishop is a faithful, prophetic woman of God and is the first African American woman to be Bishop of the Baltimore-Washington Conference as well as the Peninsula-Delaware Conference. This breakout will allow you to discuss different topics with our Bishop. She will answer pre-submitted questions as well as take them from the floor. Please allow the youth to ask their questions first.
