Florida Conference deacon is Emerging Ministry Grant recipient

On the Move

Rev. Marilyn Beecher of the Florida Conference was one of three United Methodist deacons awarded 2016 Emerging Ministry Grants. The award of $2,225 was presented for an after-school and summer day camp ministry for children. The grant is part of an annual award given out by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, and encourages United Methodist deacons and diaconal ministers working in justice ministries to reach beyond the walls of the church.
