Peninsula Delaware Annual Conference

Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. The Peninsula-Delaware Conference of the United Methodist Church is comprised of approximately 800 lay and clergy members representing 82,800 (487 churches) United Methodists from Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

It is a part of the Philadelphia Area, which includes the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference headquartered in Valley Forge, PA. The Peninsula-Delaware Conference office is located in Dover, Delaware. The Peninsula-Delaware Conference traces its roots to the very beginning of the Methodist Movement in this area. Methodist lay “circuit riders,” providing an alternative to the increasingly unpopular state Church of England, emphasized “vital piety” and planted “societies” in nearly every town and crossroads on Delmarva, beginning in the mid 1700’s. These societies became the local congregations around which community life revolved. The United Methodist Church still exerts a powerful, positive influence in this area. True to its heritage of “warm hearts and helping hands,” United Methodists form the backbone for many of this area’s service organizations. From Delaware Hospice to Boy Scouting, from Peninsula United Methodist Homes, Inc. (the area’s leading provider of retirement care) to working as partners with government agencies to provide shelter for the homeless and our tireless efforts working with Habitat for Humanity helping potential first time home owners see lifelong dreams come true. The Conference also has its own ministries of outreach and invitation including the Howard Bailey Life Enrichment Program, a rites of passage program for youth, and the Wesley Foundation. The Foundation offers ministry to college students on the campuses of the Delaware State University (DE), Salisbury State University (MD), University of Delaware (DE), and the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore (MD). The Peninsula-Delaware Conference was the first conference in the denomination to merge its African-American and Anglo Conferences during the Civil Rights Era in 1965. The Conference has consistently been at the forefront in its efforts to improve race relations and has made the issue of inclusiveness a top priority. The United Methodist Church provides spiritual leadership to more than 11 million persons in a broad range of settings on four continents, including North America, Europe, Africa and Asia

The Power of a Letter

New blog by Bishop Johnson - The Power of a Letter

“Congressman John Lewis went home to be with the Lord this week. The world has gained and lost a great man in him. As a child he felt a call to the preaching ministry, and he later graduated from a Baptist seminary and Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. But he spent his life preaching justice and equality for all through his actions as a public servant.”

Donate To My Local Church

The Peninsula-Delaware Conference is aware of the fact that the CORONA-19 pandemic has severally limited our ability to worship as normal. We know that there are creative ways being utilized by our churches to virtually pass the offering plate to allow members to continue to support their church with their tithes.

The Conference Council on Finance and Administration has authorized the Business Office to set-up a process that will allow individuals to make donations to churches through the Conference’s PayPal Business account. If you would like your congregants to be able to use this service, simply click on the link below and copy the URL into your email or on-line newsletter(make sure to use the copy and paste functions and not the “save as image” function to retain the hyperlink attached to the image). The same link will also be posted to the Conference website (www.pen-del.org) as well.

The Business Office will accumulate these donations and pass them on to the church. We will provide the information needed so you can properly document and acknowledge these individual donations. We hope that this program will be helpful. If you should have specific questions please email [email protected].

We are praying for wisdom, courage, and patience as we all navigate these trying times together knowing that it is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that we can be healed as individuals, as a church, as a nation, and as a world community.

- Bill Westbrook, Conference Treasurer

pendel-reg.brtapp.com Thank you for donating to your local church. Please note that the PayPal processing charge will be deducted from this donation.

Though we must worship apart, we in the Pen-Del wish you a joyous celebration of Christ's resurrection. He is Risen. He is Risen, indeed!
