WCA President Casts Vision for a Global Church

May 7, 2021

“The announcement of the impending birth of the Global Methodist Church is a moment of great hope for Methodists around the world,” said the Rev. Keith Boyette, Wesleyan Covenant Association President. “Committed to the historic Christian faith in the Wesleyan tradition, the Global Methodist Church will unashamedly proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our unity will be in the person of Jesus Christ – not in an institution. We are single-minded in our mission.”

Speaking at Go Global!, the WCA’s Fifth Global Gathering held at Frazer Church in Montgomery, Alabama, on Saturday, May 1, 2021, Boyette challenged the crowd to recapture the vision and passion of the early Methodist movement.

“We desire to be a truly global church that enables the strengths in one region of the church to be shared across the church in every part of the world so that we all mutually benefit,” he said. “Rather than being a church dominated by being U.S.-centric we expect to be a church that experiences the rich diversity of leadership and vision that rises up from all corners of our connection.”
