This year several missionaries with covenant relationships in the Florida Conference are/will be in the US for itineration. When these missionaries travel through our conference, they are available to visit not only their covenant churches but also other churches that are interested in hearing firsthand what God is doing around the world through missionary service.
The Rev. Connie L. DiLeo is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church assigned to the Dominican Republic, where she is engaged in a range of ministries. A new ministry in 2013 is that of developing a new congregation of young adults and youth in the village of La Hoya. The new church is committed to strong outreach to bring youth and young adults off the streets and to introduce them to Jesus Christ. She also works with the Evangelical Church of the Dominican Republic, helping to coordinate medical groups that come from Western North Carolina Conference to provide surgeries and medical outreach to the surrounding areas. She also continues her work with surrounding Haitian communities in many different facets. For more information, click HERE. Connie is available for church visits in the Florida Conference through the end of May.
The Rev. Britt and Alison Gilmore are missionaries of the General Board of Global Ministries assigned to the East Belfast Mission in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Britt serves as the Minister of Outreach and Community within the Mission. He participates in the worship and discipleship life of the congregation, and also seeks to maintain a pastoral presence with the activities of EBM that are outside the congregation. Alison works part-time as a mental health therapist in the counseling center at EBM. She works alongside one other part-time counselor, and the two of them largely see individuals from the community surrounding the Mission.
