Farewell Reception for Bishop Cynthia Fierro Harvey and Mr. Dean Harvey

November 16, 2022

On Sunday, December 4, the Louisiana Conference cordially invites you to attend a celebration for Bishop Cynthia Fierro Harvey and Mr. Dean Harvey.

As you have heard, Bishop Harvey will be leaving the Louisiana Conference as she has been assigned to serve the Texas Conference, beginning January 1, 2023.

Bishop Harvey has provided exemplary leadership for the Louisiana Conference. Her visionary leadership will be celebrated and remembered as she prepares for her new assignment.

Before Bishop Harvey and Dean depart, let’s celebrate both of them with a heartfelt Louisiana send-off!

The open house reception will be held from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge, with special presentations at 6:00 pm.

While all are invited and encouraged to attend, we ask everyone to kindly RSVP by November 29th


“We want to take the opportunity to thank Bishop Cynthia Fierro Harvey and Dean for their ten years of ministry among us,” Rev. Dr. Van Stinson said. “Bishop Harvey has guided us through multiple storms and even a pandemic. Through it all, she has consistently reminded us to keep nothing sacred but the mission. This is our chance to express our heartfelt gratitude for her leadership and ministry.”

Gifts of love and appreciation may be given in honor/or memory of others to The Bishop Cynthia and Dean Harvey Scholarship Fund to Benefit Youth of the Lydia Patterson Institute - A Ministry of the United Methodist Church.
