Original Article: Bishop Announcement for Wesley Heritage Tour
Bishop Larry M. Goodpaster has announced his plan to lead pastors, church leaders, and other interested persons throughout Western North Carolina on a Wesley Heritage Tour to take place in early to mid-July of 2014. Participants will visit sites important to the birth and development of Methodism as they travel to London, Bristol, Bath, Worchester, Gloucester, Birmingham, Coventry, Epworth, Stratford, and Oxford. A brochure detailing information, including costs, is being developed and will be available in April. Information will also be shared during the Educational Opportunities Breakfast at the Western North Carolina Annual Conference in June.
Interested persons are asked to contact the Rev. Dr. Thomas R. Sigmon, project coordinator, right away, firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone, 704.532.7167, who will provide information, including brochures, as soon as they are available. Clergy or church leaders should also contact Dr. Sigmon about ways of earning credit toward their travel costs for this trip. This is the first conference supported Wesley Heritage Tour since 2002.
