150 Years of Bringing Jesus to the North Central U.S.

The Free Methodist Movement was launched in 1860 in Pekin, NY and simultaneously in Illinois (today's North Central Conference).  150 years ago leaders in the east (B.T. Roberts, et al) and in the west (J.W. Redfield, et al) exploded on the scene with a fervent desire to spread scriptural holiness accross the land and proclaim the gospel to the poor.  Promoting human liberation through the abolitionist movement and liberation of the heart through the gospel, this powerhouse movement "Brought Jesus" through planting churches accross the United States and the world. 
 
Today, in the North Central Conference (IL, WI, ND, SD, MN, MO, IA, MT), there are fewer Free Methodist churches than there were 50 years ago, and the fervor for evangelism and social-impact seems in many quarters to have waned. 
 
Are we still bringing Jesus?  Are we still planting new churches intensely motivated to bring the love of Christ and holy edge of the Word to bring healing and wholeness to suffering people and communities?  Our goal is to plant and revitlalize 50 churches by 2025! 
 
Pray for the 150th Annual Conference.  Let us be able to truthfully affirm in every corner of the 7 state region of the NCC - we are STILL BRINGING JESUS!
