Bishop Gregory Palmer has announced the appointment of the Rev. Matthew Henson as General Evangelist in the United Methodist Church. Rev. Henson founded Living the Adventure Ministries in 2007 and has served part-time as this ministry’s executive director and lead evangelist for the past three years.
Living the Adventure Ministries seeks to work for the transformation of the world through the awakening of the Church, evangelistic preaching, and Christian people putting their faith into action by engaging in mission experiences around the world. This mission is lived out through Henson’s preaching at revivals, renewal events, camps, conferences, and retreats, while also leading mission trips domestically and internationally. Henson has led groups to Haiti on three occasions since the January 2010 earthquake, and has more trips planned in the next 12 months.
