Benson United Methodist Church

Benson, North Carolina

At Benson UMC in rural North Carolina Greg Kornegay leads by example to encourage the telling of scripture by heart. He has encouraged the lay-scripture readers at his church to provide background information when reading as well as doing scripture by heart.

As many of us have learned, it is often a significant challenge to change the way scriptures are presented in our local churches. Greg continues to pray for his church and to encourage others to take up a biblical storytelling vocation as God leads him.

Greg and four other biblical storytellers in central North Carolina told Mark’s Passion Story at two churches during Holy Week 2009: First UMC in Cary and Edenton St. UMC in Raleigh. They hope to form a Carolina Guild of the Network of Biblical Storytellers.
