In appreciation to church leadership and recognizing the impact it has on the community, Methodist Charlton Medical Center will host an appreciation luncheon for local pastors and ministry leaders May 29, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Methodist Charlton auditorium.

Keynote speaker for the event will be Rickie G. Rush, pastor and organizer of The Inspiring Body of Christ Worldwide Ministries (IBOC), one of the most progressive, flourishing ministries in America. Originally organizing with nine members, the church has grown to 14,000-plus members. Rush’s gift as a public speaker has earned him numerous local and national awards and international recognition

Elite News publisher and founder William Blair will also share a patient testimonial on the excellent care he says he received at Methodist Charlton during a recent hospital stay. The luncheon will also feature entertainment and prize drawings.

Methodist Charlton is hosting this fourth annual event to honor pastors and ministry leaders for their dedicated service and commitment to the community.

“We want to express our sincere gratitude to pastors and ministry leaders who serve patients and their families during all hours of the day to provide spiritual support,” said Methodist Charlton President Jonathan S. Davis, FACHE.

The event is an opportunity for attendees to:

  • Learn about the growth and changes taking place at Methodist Charlton
  • Become educated on policies and procedures that will help pastors and ministry leaders better serve patients and their families during pastoral visits
  • Learn more about upcoming community health education seminars at Methodist Charlton
