All proceeds will benefit the Mission 2 Gather mission agencies and mission congregations of the North Alabama Conference working together to engage persons in mission and ministry to those in need.
There are several ways you can support this fundraising event.
One of the opportunities to fund some of our missions’ ministries is through the 5K run at Annual Conference. Most of the District Superintendents and I participated in the run this past year.
Each District Superintendent has agreed to do so again if 10 people from a district sign up or if $1000 is raised from their district. However, we have added a way for a District Superintendent to opt out if he/she so desires. If the District Superintendent raises more money than their District, he/she gets to ride one of Birmingham Southern College's golf carts.
I can imagine now some of the District Superintendents riding on golf carts bantering with their less fortunate colleagues who are running. I invite you to join me in making the 5K run a priority. I am still deciding if I will bring my running shoes to Annual Conference or ride a golf cart. Either way it will be great fun for a wonderful cause. I hope to see you there.
