Park Avenue Church Joins the Global Methodist Church
We are pleased to announce that at the church conference held on July 24, 2022, Park Avenue Church unanimously voted to join the Global Methodist Church. On July 25, 2022, the Transitional Leadership Council of the Global Methodist Church considered our application to join, and unanimously voted to accept Park Avenue Church into the Global Methodist Church.
The Transitional Leadership Council also unanimously approved Senior Pastor Jimmy Towson’s and Associate Pastor Jamie Bone’s membership as clergy persons in the Global Methodist Church. The council recognized Jimmy’s status as an ordained elder and Jamie’s status to be approved for ordination as an elder! An ordination service will be scheduled in the future, but Jamie’s status as an elder in the GMC is recognized immediately!
We are so very proud of Jamie, and are grateful that the GMC has recognized God’s amazing work in and through her! It is great to have another elder on staff at Park Avenue, and no one deserves it more than Jamie!
We are grateful for all of the hard work and tireless effort of so many that led to this historic moment in the life of Park Avenue, including the staff, Protocol Study Team, Executive Team, and Administrative Council. And, it absolutely would not have happened without the prayers, support and encouragement of you, the Park Avenue family.
We celebrate all of these significant decisions and give all the glory and honor to God for guiding us every step of the way and for leading us into the Global Methodist Church. Now, we look forward with great anticipation to what God has in store for us next.
