    At this year’s Annual Conference at Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena, the Commissioning and Ordination Service will be held on Friday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. This will be one of the largest groups of individuals to be commissioned or ordained since the formation of the Upper New York (UNY) Conference.

    We are pleased to announce that the speaker for the Service of Commissioning and Ordination is Bishop Cynthia Moore-Koikoi.

    Bishop Moore-Koikoi is the bishop of the Western Pennsylvania Conference and the Susquehanna Conference. Prior to her role as bishop, Moore-Koikoi served as superintendent of the Baltimore Metropolitan District in the Baltimore Washington Conference.

    The title of Bishop Moore-Koikoi’s message at the 2023 UNY Commissioning and Ordination Service is “The Power of One.” She will be using John 17:17-24 as the foundation for her message.
