Go here to register for the event. holston-evangelism-conference
The Rev. Charles Kyker will be the speaker for the 2011 Holston Evangelism Conference. Kyker, who also appeared at the 2010 Holston Annual Conference, is lead pastor for the four campuses of Christ United Methodist Church in Hickory, N.C.
The Rev. Ken Sloane is the Director of Communications Ministry at United Methodist Communications in Nashville, TN. An ordained elder in the Greater New Jersey Conference, he was a local church pastor for 20 years, a successful new church planter, and Director of Connectional Ministries for that conference before being appointed to the denominations’s communications agency in 2006. He leads the team that has developed “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors” and the new “RETHINK CHURCH” campaigns. He has a passion for telling the stories of how United Methodists are making a difference, here and around the world!
An admitted Facebook “junkie,” Ken recently had the opportunity to update his relationship status to “Engaged” when he proposed to Holston Conference native and fellow UMCom employee Bridget McKamey Worden. They are planning a wedding in June after Ken comes home from extensive travel to Annual Conference sessions across the country.
The conference will again be held at Cokesbury Center in Knoxville, Tenn.
