In his Episcopal address at the 191st Annual Session of the Liberia Episcopal Area of the United Methodist Church, Bishop Samuel Quire emphasized the importance of prioritizing the youth ministry within the church.

Addressing attendees at the Unification Pavilion on the Fair Grounds in Buchanan City, Bishop Quire urged the department and council on young people’s ministry to redouble their efforts in nurturing the growth and development of young members.

Additionally, amidst discussions on the sensitive issue of human sexuality within the Church, Bishop Quire called for a spirit of prayer and seeking God’s guidance. He encouraged all United Methodists to engage in constructive dialogue and seek common ground ahead of the upcoming general conference.

In a surprising announcement, Bishop Quire also announced the suspension of Episcopal financial aid for students enrolling at the United Methodist University. Citing financial strain on the institution, he appealed to parents and guardians to be prepared to cover their children’s expenses at the university.

As the conference year came to a close, Bishop Quire urged United Methodists to embrace reconciliation, setting aside past grievances for the collective advancement of the Church. He reminded them to adhere to the timeless principles of Methodism: to do good, avoid harm, and remain steadfast in their love for God.

Amidst challenges and uncertainties, Bishop Quire’s message resonated with attendees, emphasizing the need for unity, prayer, and adherence to Methodist values in navigating the path forward.
