ELCSummit_prayerThe Rev. Derrick Lewis Noble, right, director of church development and revitalization for the New York Annual Conference, anoints and prays for the Rev. Tommy Halsell of Mount Carmel and Scott’s Memorial UMCs, Lockesburg. The prayer time was the closing worship of the Arkansas Conference 2015 Ethnic Local Church Summit, held Feb. 28 at Philander Smith College. Sixty United Methodists gathered for the day-long event, which focused on three areas: marketing the local church, preaching and technology. Featured workshop leaders included Noble; the Rev. Sherry Daniels, a technology consultant from Norfolk, Va.; and Bunnie Jackson-Ransom of Atlanta-based First Class Marketing.

For those who could not attend but who are interested in learning from the presenters, an archived video of the plenary session is available on the Arkansas Conference YouTube channel:
