Allegheny East Conference's Prison Ministries Federation Elects Officers
Story by LaTasha Hewitt
At a recent constituency meeting, members of Allegheny East Conference’s (AEC) Prison Ministries Federation elected officers to serve for the next quinquennium. Constituents re-elected Ronald Timpson, a member of the Miracle City church in Baltimore, as federation president; Fitz Wilson of the Trinity Temple church in Newark, N.J., as vice president; and Romel Holley from the North Philadelphia (Pa.) church as treasurer.
To make the federation more efficient, committee members updated the bylaws and emphasized subscribing 100,000 incarcerated men and women to the Message magazine.
“It was a good meeting. Participants left with a determined resolve to reach those behind bars with the saving hope of Jesus Christ,” says Colin Brathwaite, a member and leader of AEC’s Prison Ministries Federation. “However, there is a great need for more workers, especially for young people to join the ranks.”
