The summit is named for the late Rev. Vernon and Eva Lee Paysinger, who dedicated their lives to Christian ministry and were lifelong advocates for programs designed to eradicate hunger in Arkansas. Their legacy of caring is reflected in the establishment of the Vernon and Eva Lee Paysinger Endowment Fund, administered by the United Methodist Foundation of Arkansas (UMFA). The endowment’s purpose is to support Arkansas ministries that work to eliminate hunger.
