Crossing Boundaries: Texas United Methodist Historical Society Annual Meeting
Friday, April 28 – Saturday, April 29

This year’s annual meeting will be held at the First United Methodist Church of Richardson, Texas. Although 2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the North Texas Annual Conference, presentation themes will cross conference boundaries to include stories of a leading early Texas Methodist family, a famous gospel music singer, a 1920 SMU graduate who served as a missionary in Africa, and former Rio Grande Conference charges in North Texas that did (and did not) join the North Texas Conference.

The keynote address will be given by James A. McMillin, Ph.D., retired Associate Director of Bridwell Library and professor of American Religious History at Southern Methodist University. Additional presenters will include:
· Rev. Ben Anderson David Hensley (Oak Lawn UMC, Dallas)
· Rev. Priscilla Pope-Levison, Ph.D. (Perkins School of Theology)
· Rev. Emily Robnett (student, Perkins School of Theology)
· Rev. Daniel F. Flores, Ph.D. (Tarrant County College)
