Did you know that to support a missionary pastor in the Red Bird Missionary Conference is the same as supporting a missionary
anywhere in the world? The advantage is that you get the opportunity to develop a lasting relationship with this missionary,
in which you can come to visit them and see firsthand the work they are doing. You have the opportunity to get to know the people
they are serving and become involved in that work yourselves. You can send teams to their churches, receive letters from them in
regards to the work, and even arrange for them to come and visit and share about the ways in which the love of God is being shared
and shown in southeastern Kentucky. If you are interested in having a speaker or receiving more information about missionaries
and the work taking place within the Red Bird Missionary Conference please call 606-598-5915 or email
Serving God takes a variety of talents and abilities. Volunteers are a key component of our ministry here within the Red Bird Missionary
Conference. Dale Haggard and Miriam Miller are two long time volunteers that have faithfully served in the conference office for over 20 years.
The Red Bird Missionary Conference staff is very appreciative of their help and dedication. In an interview they were asked why the work at
Red Bird was so important to their hearts and what it means to be a volunteer. Here is an excerpt, the entire articles can be found on our
website at www.redbirdconference.org. We hope that as you read about these two long time faithful volunteers that you too will think about
making a trip the Red Bird Missionary Conference in order to experience first hand the amazing ministry that God has taking place here in
the heart of Appalachia. more >
Building a Solid Foundation
Rev. Steven Riddle and his wife Jeannine came here from Florida to serve last spring. They immediately began visiting
the community and building relationships. One such friendship began between a woman named Henrietta and Jeannine.
Henrietta began to attend the Beverly United Methodist Church. She got very involved and subsequently gave her life
to Christ. She then began working extensively with the children and youth. Henrietta wanted to be baptized, however
some health issues kept her from being able to be immersed in the frigid January creek. Although, she wanted to be
immersed, she settled to be sprinkled instead. more >
Welcome to Red Bird Missionary Conference
Welcome to the Red Bird Missionary Conference, Inc. Web Site
So let's begin... What is Red Bird Missionary Conference?
The Red Bird Missionary Conference is one of three missionary conferences in the United States,
the other two are: Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference and Alaska Missionary Conference.
A missionary conference serves in an area where local resources cannot meet the needs;
therefore mission support from the whole Church is necessary.
Red Bird Missionary Conference is located
in the Southeastern Kentucky. It is the most comprehensive mission effort of The United Methodist
Church in the United States, providing outreach and services that minister to the whole
person (spiritual, physical, social, and economic).
1 John 5:3: "This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commandments."
Churches or Individuals can give Wings to ministry in Southeastern Kentucky.
HOW DO WE LIVE THE GREAT COMMISSION
IN THIS ECONOMY?
Wings for Red Bird was specially designed to give individuals, and congregations small and large, a flexible, affordable way
to continue sharing the love of God through ministries in the mountains of Southeastern Kentucky.

Bennett Center to Close
The Board of Directors of The Bennett Center Inc. in London, KY has voted to dissolve the non-profit organization. The United Methodist
Women Inc. informed the Board of their intention to sell the property. The decision to sell the property along with the decrease in
income from organizations renting the facilities precipitated this decision. The last day of business for the Bennett Center will
be October 31st.
The Bennett Center, a Christian, non-profit organization located in Kentucky's Southeastern Appalachian Mountains, was founded in
1998. The Bennett Center has historically offered opportunities to all persons for wholeness through programs that address their
spiritual, educational, physical, social and cultural needs.
The Bennett Center is located on the grounds of the former Sue Bennett College.
