Missioner of the Year

INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis United Methodist Metro Ministries granted Dave Withey, a member of Meridian Street UMC, their 2012 Missioner of the Year Award during the mission outreach organization’s annual celebration Sunday, Nov. 11, at North UMC.

Withey was recognized for his volunteer home repair work to elderly and low-income residents, who cannot afford repairs to their homes. Withey works with several churches and numerous volunteers in Central Indiana.

During the most recent Indiana Annual Conference session this past summer in Indianapolis, Withey lead a group of volunteers in repairing the home of a senior resident in the Brightwood neighborhood.

In other business, Metro Ministries, led by Executive Director Lisa Morris, thanked retiring board members for their dedication, announced the names of new board members, provided display space for more than 30 faith-based organizations and projects in Greater Indianapolis and granted honor, service and memorial citations to numerous supporters of the organization.
