Rejuvenate now part of foundation

The new year brought a new beginning for the Indiana Conference Rejuvenate project. On Jan. 2, Rejuvenate became a program of the United Methodist Foundation of Indiana.

Rejuvenate’s director Rev. Michelle Cobb and Jody Patty, Rejuvenate assistant, moved from the Indiana Conference Center in Indianapolis to the United Methodist Foundation of Indiana in Fishers.

According to the Rev. David V.W. Owen, executive assistant to Bishop Mike Coyner, “With the action of the Rejuvenate Oversight Committee, the foundation board and the (Indiana Conference) Leadership Table the Rejuvenate project was moved to become an established program ministry partnership in collaboration with the United Methodist Foundation of Indiana and the Indiana Conference.”

The program is now under the supervision of Manet Shettle, president of the foundation and the Rejuvenate Oversight Committee.

Cobb and Patty vacated the Indiana Conference Center the end of the December and moved their files and supplies to their new location – 8401 Fishers Center Drive in Fishers, just east of the 116th Street exit off I-69.

Just a year ago, the foundation moved into its new offices at the same address.

Information about the both the United Methodist Foundation of Indiana and Rejuvenate can be found online at www.umfindiana.org. The phone number for both is 317-788-7879. E-mail addresses for both Cobb and Patty are mcobb@UMFIndiana.org and jpatty@UMFIndiana.org.

For those readers who may not know, Rejuvenate is made possible by a generous matching grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. and contributions from generous United Methodist benefactors. Its purpose is to strengthen clergy excellence and enhance the viability of congregations through an educational program for clergy and laity and an economic initiative for clergy and/or clergy spouses. This educational ministry focuses on financial management, planning and personal stewardship education.

At the end of December, Rejuvenate Assistant Jody Patty and the Rev. Michelle Cobb, Director of Rejuvenate, pack their files and supplies at the Indiana Conference Center in Indianapolis to move to their new offices at the United Methodist Foundation of Indiana in Fishers.
