What is Red Bird Missionary Conference?
The Red Bird Missionary Conference is one of three missionary conferences in the United States, the other two are: Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference and Alaska Missionary Conference. A missionary conference serves in an area where local resources cannot meet the needs; therefore mission support from the whole Church is necessary.
Red Bird Missionary Conference is in the Southeastern Kentucky. It is the most comprehensive mission effort of The United Methodist Church in the United States, providing outreach and services that minister to the whole person (spiritual, physical, social, and economic).
The Red Bird Missionary Conference has three mission institutions (the Bennett Center in London, KY is now closed). Each institution has its own unique ministry and programming. Henderson Settlement is located in Frakes, KY. Red Bird Clinic and Red Bird Mission are both located at Beverly, KY with the Conference Office.
