178. MissionCast – Fair Trade Market – Manchester UMC

KelleeThrough the direction of Kellee Sikes, Manchester United Methodist Church, is currently sponsoring the largest fair trade market in the country.  In this MissionCast Kellee tells why it would be great if more and more churches would sponsor fair trade markets.  Any church large or small can do so.  To offer encouragement Kellee is offering a $500 reward to the congregation that sponsors a market for the first time and raises the most money per capita for their church membership.  A second $500 award will go to the congregation that uses the most volunteers per capita in their market.  Kellee received the Social Justice Ministries award at the 2010 Missouri Annual Conference, in Springfield, in June.
