In this brief video the Rev. Dr. Jeff Greenway, lead pastor of Reynoldsburg (Ohio) United Methodist Church, talks about the formation of the Wesleyan Covenant Association (WCA) and why he will be at the convening conference event in Chicago on October 7. Jeff has been an evangelical leader in the West Ohio Annual Conference, a local pastor, district superintendent, and former president of Asbury Theological Seminary.
In less than 10 days, nearly 700 laity and clergy have registered to attend the WCA launch event.
Earlier this week organizers announced that the Rev. Jorge Acevedo, lead pastor at Grace Church, a multi-site United Methodist congregation in Southwest Florida with six campuses, will be one of its keynote speakers.
Grace Church has grown in its weekend attendance from 400 to over 2600 in the past nineteen years. Rescued from a life of addictions, Jorge’s greatest delight is connecting people to Jesus and the Church. Grace Church is recognized as having one of the largest and most effective recovery ministries in America.
Jorge has become a popular speaker at annual conferences throughout the United Methodist connection. He is the co-author of Sent: Giving the Gift of Hope at Christmas (Abingdon Press, 2015) and the author of Vital: Churches Changing Communities and the World (Abingdon Press, 2013).
