Mission Central (7050) is the place of miracles, now including 37 HUBS, "connecting God's resources with human need" through mission education, mission outreach, and disaster response. Annually, over

The Seminary Debt Fund (7160) helps clergy, who are under appointment, with their debts from their seminary education. Pastors often graduate from seminary with upwards of $25,000 of debt for their schooling (not counting debt for undergraduate studies). This fund is designed to help those who are appointed in the Susquehanna Conference pay off the seminary debt they accrued as they were getting the necessary education to further their ministry among us in a timely manner.
Ordination Service, Saturday,
May 6, 2017:
Bishop's Partners in Mission (7090) calls us to Imagine No Malaria and Imagine No More Debt! 100% of the proceeds from this fund go to Imagine No Malaria (the UMC's global campaign to fight malaria) and paying down the debt of Mission Central so they can focus on their core mission of connecting God's resources with human need. Bishop Park is inviting individuals, congregations and church groups to join him and be Partners in Mission, committing to $100 or more a year. Whatever you can give helps the lives of those locally and around the world. God is still calling us to imagine great things, he is calling us to Imagine What We Can Do Together!
