Bishop Michael J Coyner has led Indiana United Methodists for the last 12 years to a clear understanding of the urgency of “making disciples of Jesus Christ”. That means inviting new people to become disciples and helping those who have already received the grace of God to grow into deeper and more generous followers of Christ.
The goal of this campaign is to develop new and well-equipped Discipleship Centers in Indiana. There is urgent need to replace the 90-year-old auditorium at Epworth Forest Conference Center with new facilities designed for multi-use programming all year long. That is our primary goal.
If we could do more – our camp in south-central Indiana was built around a lake for meditation and recreation. It was built over aquifers that could not hold water over time. Modern technology now permits us to affordably build new lakes restoring the beautiful and peaceful waterfront setting where the presence of Christ can be felt at Camp Indicoso.
And if we could do more – we already have gifts toward a new lodge at Epworth in honor of Stan Buck; additional funds can add a third retreat facility.
And if we could do more – we could provide scholarships for families with financial need to attend camp.
