“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.’” (Luke 17:1-2, NIV)
Bishop Gregory V. Palmer is pleased to announce to you the final of our four superintendent transitions beginning this July. Rev. Dr. Dennis Miller will be appointed a conference superintendent and assigned to the Foothills District in the West Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church, effective July 1, 2014. Rev. Miller will follow Rev. Dr. Dennis Mohler who will receive a new appointment following six years as a superintendent.
Exciting ministry is happening in United Methodist churches all across our conference, and many local churches have become quite creative in "telling the story" of their ministry successes! Our hope is to facilitate the sharing of those stories to as wide an audience as possible.
Dear beloved friends,

Encourage them to attend the 2014 Assembly which will be held April 25 to 27, in Louisville, Ky. at the Kentucky International Convention Center. This grass-roots Assembly will help attendees find their individual voice for mission.
