Conference History Film Debut on June 3rd

Mandated and sponsored by our Conference planning committee, “By Faith...” was created by young filmmaker Jacob Taylor of St. Luke’s UMC-Memphis
and volunteer producer/director Mark Matheny, who says, “It was a great challenge and great joy to pull this together with dozens of UM team members sharing their time and talents!”
