Liberia Trust

The Detroit Annual Conference has a longstanding and deep relationship with the United Methodist Church in Liberia. This relationship was formalized as a “Covenant Partnership” during the 1990s, the darkest period of Liberia’s civil wars. Leaders of both Conferences promised to always remember and support each other with prayers, gifts, and sustained conversation.

In order to put this covenant into practice, each District in the Detroit Annual Conference was assigned Partner Districts from the Liberia Annual Conference.
