Mitchell Lewis Joins UMEA as New Director

November 30, 2017

Mitchell Lewis, director of EndowmentDear Coworkers in Christ,

I am honored to join the United Methodist Endorsing Agency (UMEA) team as the new director of Endorsement. 

Having just completed over 26 years in an endorsed setting, I am deeply aware of how important the agency has been in my life. My own endorsement interview helped confirm my call to chaplain ministry. The relationships I developed through UMEA enriched my life beyond measure. In a system that frequently moved me from one part of the world to another, UMEA was an invaluable source of strength, providing me with an ongoing sense of the Church’s presence and support. Even more than the local congregation or the Annual Conference, UMEA was the rock of my connection with United Methodism. I pray that I might pass that blessing on to the next generation of the endorsed community.

We all have different gifts, different personalities and different callings as we serve our one God through The United Methodist Church. I look forward to meeting you, reading your annual reports and learning how God is using you and your ministry to serve the cause of Christ.

I am grateful for this opportunity to serve Christ and his Church in this capacity. I know that I am following in the footsteps of giants. I appreciate your prayers as I undertake this great responsibility.

Grace and peace, Mitchell
