Bishop Lindsey Davis, episcopal leader for both conferences, and the Cabinet set a goal of $100,000. On June 11, members of the Kentucky Conference brought their offerings during the Mission and Ministry Celebration and surpassed that goal in an amazing way. Over $200,000 was raised for Red Bird (a total of $224,986 at the end of October 2010 and money continues to come in). Monies will be divided among four areas of ministry: education, youth ministries, pastoral support, and physical plant improvements.
