Imagine No Malaria Field Coordinator – Katie Kevorkian

It is with great joy and anticipation that we welcome Ms. Katie Kevorkian as the Imagine No Malaria Field Coordinator assigned to the California-Pacific Conference, effective immediately.

Imagine No Malaria Field Coordinators assist specific annual conferences who have made a significant commitment to the Imagine No Malaria campaign.  As one of these committed annual conferences, the California-Pacific Conference has been selected by Imagine No Malaria to receive financial support for a Field Coordinator.

Katie graduated Magna Cum Laude from St Michael’s College in Vermont with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and English Literature and earned a Master of Arts in Inter-religious Education from Claremont School of Theology.

Her experience with The United Methodist Church includes staffing children and youth ministries in the local church to leading outreach programs with the United Methodist Urban Foundation.   Katie is well experienced in representing the mission of the church in ways that inspire the church from within, but that also inspire and encourage the engagement and support of extended constituencies and even organizations beyond the church.

In collaboration with the Imagine No Malaria staff, the Field Coordinator will have primary responsibility for implementing conference-wide strategies for Imagine No Malaria education, advocacy and fund raising within the California-Pacific Annual Conference, and for providing reporting to the INM staff. The Field Coordinator will support congregational fundraising activities, train and educate Conference volunteer leadership for INM mission and malaria advocacy, and assist in identification and management of special and lead gift prospects for the Conference.

What drives her ministry, she says, is the desire to provide care and support to those who seek a better life by resourcing them with effective tools and other means.  Katie is deeply committed to the mission of eradicating malaria, a preventable disease affecting millions of our brothers and sisters on the continent of Africa, particularly children and pregnant women.  I know we all join her in her hope that one day, children and families will no longer fear the terrible threat that malaria poses today.

I am confident that Katie will lead us well and that together we will passionately join other United Methodists across our connectional church in this mighty work of God.

Peace,

Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño, Resident Bishop
California-Pacific Conference of The United Methodist Church
