On the final morning of the 2015 Annual Conference, Bishop Gary Mueller, the Rev. Mark Hicks, president of Disciple Bible Outreach Ministries National, and Steve Smith of First UMC Russellville, the chair of the Arkansas Conference prison ministry board of directors, celebrated the signing of a relationship statement that marks the Conference’s entry into a new area of ministry. Disciple Bible Outreach will support United Methodist churches in Arkansas that are involved in ministries with those who are incarcerated.
