Los Angeles Area Resident Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño preached at the 2014 General Conference of The United Methodist Church of Mexico and was present for the dedication of the Chapel in the Encinal Camp in Tecate, Mexico in May of 2014.
Bishop Carcaño preached a word of encouragement to the attendees of the 22nd General Conference at el Templo Nuevo Pacto to seek the experience of the warmed heart as Wesley did if the Church is to grow.
Present for the dedication were Bishops and District Superintendents from across The Methodist Church of Mexico as well as representatives of The United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries.
Bishop Carcaño represented the Joint Commission which, since 1965 at the request of Mexico Bishop Alejandro Ruis, has faithfully coordinated and supported United Methodist mission work in Mexico with The Methodist Church of Mexico. The land for the camp, as well as many of its facilities, were financially supported by the Joint Commission.
The Joint Commission is now a part of the Justice and Compassion Essential Ministries Team.
