UM Luminaries in the New York Area
To celebrate 250 years of United Methodism in the New York Area, the NYAC Commission on Archives and History developed educational biographies that tell the stories of 25 luminaries in the New York Conference over the past 250 years. These one-page biographies provide information about each person's life and accomplishments, as well as discussion questions that can be used for bible study, discussion groups, confirmation classes, and sermon preparation.
