    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    Perspectives: Meet the DLTs

    Meet the DLTs: Rev. Anna Blinn Cole & Pastor Rich Howard

    July 23, 2019 / By

    In this vlog, Pastor Rich Howard dives deep into the Bible trying to find a warranty for a church that is no longer vital. The Rev. Anna Blinn Cole steps in and references Mark 5: 38-42 where a crowd fears a resting girl is no longer alive, yet Jesus shows them she is merely sleeping. Rev. Blinn Cole compares a church to this resting girl and explains just like the girl, a church can be revitalized.

    Rev. Blinn Cole then describes the Oneonta DLT and how they are willing to come alongside pastors of local churches to help them in the revitalization process.
