With Apprection and Gratitude... Dr. Steve L. Rumford President/CEO

This past week, Rozelle and I spent several evenings looking through 29 years of Gateways. It was a special time of remembering cherished “family albums.” We are so grateful to have had the honor and privilege to be a part of The Methodist Home for all these years. The picture of us with our three young and active boys brings back all the memories of moving a young family to what we believe was God’s calling for our lives. What we discovered was how wonderful the love, support and commitment of the South Georgia Annual Conference is for The Methodist Home. Indeed it was evident that The Home was and is the “heart” of the Conference. We were welcomed by a Board of Trustees who took their work seriously and wanted so much for The Home to be a vibrant and effective ministry. Names like Jason Shirah, Frederick Wilson, Frank Terry, Bill McTier, Joel Dent, Johnny Walker, Jimmy Pennell, Edwin Chase, Don Kea and so many others instilled in me the expectation for a dynamic Methodist Home. Over the years, committed board leadership has come from Chairpersons Russell Lipford, Creede Hinshaw, V.L. Daughtery, Frank Terry, John Stumbo, Hal Brady, Elizabeth Ogie and Bob Moon. Throughout the years, we have had committed and dedicated staff who are at the core of what we do. Daily on the front line these dedicated direct care staff have been there to restore childhoods to children whose childhoods have only taught them to be sad and angry. I am so grateful to our current Leadership Team of Jeff, Jill, Rick, Lonnie, Robin, Bruce and Derek. The wealth of experience and dedication in this team is unequaled.

They average 19 years of tenure. Behind the scenes and for nearly 20 years, Mrs. Tonie Maxwell has served as my Executive Administrative Secretary with distinction, style, and grace. In my first visit I met Rev. Emory Gilbert who was a giant during a very difficult time of transition. Betty Gilbert welcomed us with a caramel cake and her recipe is now our family’s traditional favorite. Emory saw to it that I became acquainted with the South Georgia Conference. From that first Annual Conference meeting in Albany to trips to every District, Emory shared his pride for and insights into the great churches and good people of South Georgia. Over and over again, I heard of the amazing stories of churches and individuals who for more than 100 years responded with generosity to the tragedies of children in crisis … their response to Christ and the Church. This commitment of the South Georgia Conference was never more evident than when we began to expand our ministry across South Georgia. First in Americus, despite the setback of the flood of 1994, and then to Valdosta, St. Marys, Columbus and Waverly Hall. We saw what happens when we respond to God’s call. We have seen the amazing capacity to respond to children in crisis. In each of these communities I have been overwhelmed by the commitment, dedication and service. Finally, Rozelle and I repeatedly looked at the pictures of the residents we have served. We saw children to whom I had presented a quilt and she had given a book bag on their first trip to a new school, youth we had taken to

Disney World, Washington, D.C. and Six Flags. Youth who went to school with our children, youth who we accompanied to school conferences, court appearances, funerals of their parents, Senior Hoorahs, high school graduations, college graduations and weddings. Youth who in the immediate sense were not our children but in the ultimate sense are all our children. I cannot close without thanking our quilters. For more than 1,200 times I have been privileged to present a quilt to a child who has been removed for the first time or the 40th time from their family, foster home, friends, neighbors, school and everything else familiar. The quilt was a wonderful way to say, “Someone has already loved you enough to make you a quilt and we offer you our best care and God’s love.” The Home has been a blessing to Rozelle and me. I know of no better place to have raised our family. We will be retiring to our home in Macon. We know The Methodist Home will always make a difference. We thank all of you and God bless.

Accomplishments & Recognitions Steve Rumford came to The Methodist Home in June of 1984 as the CEO and President. He came to south Georgia from the United Methodist Home of Kentucky in Versailles, Kentucky, where he served as Associate Director. Mr. Rumford is a State of Georgia Licensed Clinical Social Worker (L.C.S.W.), a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers (A.C.S.W.), and a Diaconal Minister in the United Methodist Church. He serves as a Certified Peer Team Chairman, Council on Accreditation and a trained assessor in the E.A.G.L.E. Program of the United Methodist Association – in both he helps with accreditation reviews for health and welfare organizations. As CEO of The Methodist Home, he has received many professional awards. They include: Eugene Calhoun Lifetime Achievement Award by the Georgia Association of Homes and Services for Children (GAHSC) Gail Bayes “Vision for Children” Award, GAHSC (1998) Leadership Award, Child Placement Conference, GAHSC (2001) Administrator of the Year, Children, Youth, and Family Section, United Methodist Association (1988) Administrator of the Year, GAHSC Friend of Georgia’s Children, Georgia Association of County Welfare Directors (2011) President’s Citation for Lifetime Service, United Methodist Association (2013) Honorary Doctorate, Asbury University (2008) Roslyn slyn Carter and the former 1st Lady Ro s me lco we ord mf Dr. Ru thodist Home.

Dr. Ru mford’s Impact

Dr. Rumford has given away over 1200 quilts

In the 1980’s and under Dr. Rumford’s leadership, The Home began establishing traditions for the kids. They were established to provide healthy childhood memories to the children and youth served by The Methodist Home. These events are an important part of childhood. During Alumni Weekend, recently, an Alumnus stated that the traditions he learned from childhood were the ones he learned at The Home and the ones he practices with his own family today. Dr. Rumford was a guiding force behind establishing these traditions, still in practice today. The late 1980’s and into the 1990’s began a period of renovation and growth for The Home. New construction and renovations came to every building on the Macon campus. Innovations such as a bike-a-thon from Florida to Maine by Ken and Ruth Logan and many generous, impactful donations helped fund these improvements. The renovation of the Jack and Phyllis Jones Social Services Building more than anything else, affirmed The Home’s commitment to provide quality services. Completion of the Emory Gilbert Plaza gave a concrete reality to the need for ordinary spaces for interaction and fellowship, and demonstrated The Home’s dedication to providing a safe, engaging, healthy environment for our children and youth. A different kind of growth came from the completion of the Americus Group Home, our first regional group home. This led us into an era of opening regional offices, providing

services in communities where no services existed, and serving children closer to their families. Generous community support from leaders such as John and Betty Pope and Roy and Eliza Parker encouraged us to step out in faith. Growth continued with the Campus Life program expansion to Chaplain, Life Skills Coordinator, and Recreation Leader. 1994 saw a facility dedicated to new treatment for Georgia’s children with the completion of the Peyton Anderson Treatment Center. This program provided assessments for children failing their way through the system. As a direct result of the success of the Anderson Assessment Center, The Home was one of five state pilots for First Placement/Best Placement and the only residential site. Dr. Rumford lead the charge to make sure every child was individually assessed, so that the most appropriate help could be given as soon as possible. 1996 is considered the most remarkable year in the development of facilities in The Home’s history. The Peabody Building was completely remodeled to house HOPE, GENESIS and the Auxiliary. It now serves as offices for Development and Finance. The Valdosta Group Home was dedicated in July of that year, and the Valdosta Regional Office in the fall. The Maintenance shop on the Macon Campus was completed in July. Gould Cottage was renovated. The Pool House was completed by Vineville United Methodist Church Methodist Men. The opening of the Price Educational Center enabled us to have greater impact as we served children. The dedication of Miss Margaret’s House capped off a remarkable year. Dr. Rumford’s vision and leadership made it possible for The Methodist Home to serve more children, in more places, in more ways, more effectively. The Home entered the 21st century with cutting-edge programs and services. More young people entering college led The Home to establish residences for the students when they came back on breaks and summer. Services for families were enhanced b y our expansion into the W.I.H. Pitts Family Resource Center at 116 Pierce Avenue. Lighthouse for Families now operates in that space. In 2002, The Home partnered with Columbus For Kids to open the Our House collaborative in Columbus (37,000 square feet on 28 acres.) The program initially housed 45 youth with a wide range of community services. In 2008, we merged with The Carpenter’s Way Ranch, relocated to a 24-acre campus on Hunter Road in Cataula, and opened Arabella in Waverly Hall for girls. Most recently, The Home began our Intensive Family Visitation Program. Parents and family can enjoy supervised visits beginning the day the child is removed from the family home, and visit frequently (2-3 times a week.) In this way we strengthen families and promote child safety.



Dr. Ru mford’s

Service and Impact Beyond the Home

ford sident’s Citation to Dr. Rum e Vinson presents the Pre UMA President Rev. Stev

Dr. Rumford has not limited his focus and work to the agency he serves. Over the years he has reached beyond The Methodist Home to serve both the church and community at local, regional, and national levels. Church and faith have also been a strong focus in Mr. Rumford’s life. He has served his local church, his district, and his annual conference.

Dr. Rumford has worked hard to form collaborations, partnerships, and associations where agencies can learn from one another, share best practices, promote the welfare of the residents and clients served, and devote themselves sot the greater good of our communities. Among his various services are: • Chairperson, United Methodist Association of Health & Welfare Association (2006-2010) • Chairperson, National Center for Professional Certification (2001-2004) • Board member, Georgia Academy (1990-1997) • Chairperson, E.A.G.L.E.

Celebrating Frank and Annie Jones

For five generations, a member of the Jones family has served on the Board of Trustees at The Methodist Home. Frank and Annie Jones have been the embodiment of the Jones’ family heritage of caring. We were saddened at their passing in 2012, but our hearts are full of gratitude for the privilege of partnering with them in ministry. Their legacy of service to God’s Kingdom has been lived out not only at The Methodist Home but at many other charitable organizations as well. During his six decades as a Georgia lawyer, Frank Jones consistently demonstrated his commitment to leadership and service. “Mr. Frank” as he was affectionately known at The Home, was faithful to the ideals of serving others, promoting the cause of justice, upholding the rule of law and protecting the rights of all citizens. The Georgia Bar Journal shared that, “Fellow lawyers will always remember and be inspired by Frank Jones’ forwardthinking vision, his willingness to accept challenging assignments and the stellar performance of his duties.” Mr. Franks served as a Trustee and advisor to The Methodist Home, and was the Finance Chair at the time of his passing. Mrs. Annie joined Mr. Frank as a pillar of the community. Bright and cheerful, Annie was a consummate hostess, able to make people comfortable in every situation. Her wit and humor were matched by her intellect and avid sense of service. Mrs. Annie was active in her Vineville UMC, in various community service clubs, and took special delight in her work with garden clubs and botanical endeavors.



Frank and Annie Jones

True to their lifelong tradition of giving, this generous couple established the “Frank Cater and Annie Anderson Jones Fund” with The Foundation of The Methodist Home. The income from this fund will be used to continue their charitable support of the ministry of The Methodist Home.

We join with Frank and Annie’s children (Eugenia Jones Henderson, Annie Gantt Jones Blattner, Carolyn Jones Corley, and Frank C. Jones, Jr.) and family in calling this couple “Blessed”. What a heritage they have left of service, generosity, and Christian grace!

Advocates, Auxiliaries, and Advisory Boards

The Methodist Home is blessed to have many volunteers who partner with us to promote and support our ministry to abused and neglected boys and girls. Some of these persons live near a campus, and are able to be more “hands-on” in their involvement. Others may live further away, or have different skills and interests which might profit us. This year, we are excited to be adding Methodist Home Advocates in local churches. With this addition, we thought a quick description of the different roles might be beneficial. • An Auxiliary is a group of volunteers who work to promote and help raise funds for the ministry of The Methodist Home. This group typically is more “hands on”, often running events such as a Fish Fry, Golf Tournament, or Celebration Day. Auxiliaries usually relate to the Development Office and the Regional Director. Membership is open, and usually includes modest annual dues. Auxiliaries have their ministry primarily on a main or regional campus, and in the community. • An Advisory Board is a group of persons invited by the President/ CEO and Regional Director to provide advice, counsel, and expertise regarding the services of The

Methodist Home. Advisory Boards have been used in the creation of regional campuses, and in the merger of related or similar organizations. Advisory Boards often work at a “high level”, dealing with overall community relationships and needs. Advisory boards have their ministry primarily in the relationship of The Methodist Home to their community. • A Methodist Home Advocate is an individual elected by their local church who works to promote the mission and ministry of The Methodist Home in their church and community. Advocates are trained by The Home, and usually relate to the Development Office. Advocates

promote local giving to The Home, and help persons become aware of the services offered by The Home. Advocates have their ministry primarily in the local congregation and local community. These are just three of the wonderful avenues of service for persons who want to partner with us in restoring childhoods, strengthening families, and building people. Perhaps God is calling you to serve in such a role. Want to know more? Contact Derek McAleer at 478-751-2800, or Derek.McAleer@TheMethodistHome. org for further information.

Eagle’s Nest Children’s Center The Eagle’s Nest Children’s Center enjoyed a fantastic year ending with a Christmas performance for their families in the Burden Chapel. The Preschool class began with the Pledge of Allegiance, and then the toddler class performed Christmas favorites as reindeer complete with antlers. The Eagle’s Nest joined The Methodist Home’s programs in the Council on Accreditation site visit in October and had no suggestions of improvement in the Early Child Care standards! The Methodist Home and all services provided such as residential care, mental health counseling, and independent living received formal notification of the reaccreditation of all programs for the sixth cycle since 1992. The Eagle’s Nest has celebrated 14 years the exceptional daycare in the area of licensing. For the last two years, “The Staff of the Year” voted on by the entire Methodist Home campus, includes a staff member from The Eagles Nest. Tshanghi Corey, Director, was selected in 2011 and Christina Chambers, from the Infant Room in 2012. These staff and their efforts are shining examples of why The Eagle’s Nest Children’s Center is the premier daycare provider in the area! We are looking forward to 2013! Please assist when you can in referring other families to our services such as The Eagle’s Nest Children’s Center and Lighthouse for Families counseling services for all ages. An invitation to speak about the services we offer is also appreciated, Jill Myers, Executive VP 478-751-2849 10


The Methodist Home Reaches Many Quality Milestones This Year Jill C. Myers Executive Vice President

The Methodist Home has many rigorous oversight bodies with the expectations of excellence that measure the quality of programs. The APS Healthcare, Inc., External Review Organization conducts regular audits of The Methodist Home’s Community Counseling Center, Lighthouse for Families, and the scores have been routinely 94% or above with the latest score in November of 2012 of 94%. The State of Georgia’s Office of Provider Management, a contractor of services, engages The Methodist Home in Performance Based Contracts. Average scores from this measure of performance are over 99.3% which is some of the highest in the state. All programs, to include, residential, community counseling, independent living, and services have been reaccredited by Council on Accreditation. This is the 16th year of continuous accreditation by COA. The Methodist Home is also accredited by the United Methodist Association’s EAGLE Accreditation and continues with the 22nd year of continuous accreditation with the Health and Welfare Ministries section of The United Methodist Association.

Our financial reporting has earned us the Guidestar Exchange Seal, awarded to organizations who achieve transparency in financial reporting. Additionally, The Eagles Nest Children’s Center has just been reaccredited by NECPA, the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation, for the second year. The Eagle’s Nest Children’s Center was the first daycare center in the area to voluntarily sign up when the State of Georgia was encouraging accreditation. We are pleased that these external reviews and accreditations confirm that The Methodist Home is living its mission to be “a model organization.” We desire nothing less than the best in our services and ministry!

“Greetings! Congratulations on your organization’s achievement of re-accreditation through the Council on Accreditation (COA).” -Helen Torres, Council on Accreditation

The Valdosta Regional Office is gearing up for spring. In March, we will have our annual Easter Egg Hunt. The girls always enjoy dying and eating the eggs the day before the hunt. The first week of April, we will be going on a spring break trip to Savannah. We have been very blessed this year. The Fellowship Sunday School Class from Park Avenue United Methodist Church donated funds which were used to pay for our lodging for the trip. We are so very grateful to them. At the end of April, we will host our 4th annual Friends and Family Day. At this activity, the residents and staff invite their family to enjoy a festive, fun afternoon. We also invite our “friends” who are those who have given their time, energy, and resources. Last year, the United Methodist Men from Antioch United Methodist Church in Adel fished and fried fish for nearly 200 people. Crossing Dixie, a band from Quitman, entertained us all with live music. This year’s theme is “Live, Laugh, Love”. And, for the first time ever, we will recognize our first responders at Friends and Family Day. This event promises to be both enjoyable and exhilarating. 12

An Enlightened Heart... Derek W. McAleer Vice President for Development & Church Relations I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which He has called you, what are the riches of His glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power for us who believe, according to the working of His great power. (Ephesians 1:17-19) When Steve Rumford came to The Methodist Home in June of 1984, I was a young pastor in my first full-time appointment. Rev. Emory Gilbert, one of the saints of The Home, introduced me to Steve when I dropped by the campus. When I moved to a Macon church in 1986, I had the opportunity to get to know Dr. Rumford better, and to watch as The Home grew and changed. Later on, serving as a Trustee, I got to see how the transformation of a ministry happened from the inside. Now, as a staff member, it is very clear. The change, growth, improvement, and revolution of The Methodist Home over the past several decades is directly related to Steve’s leadership!

The key to Dr. Rumford is vision. Over the years I have watched and admired Steve’s ability to see a vision, help others see the vision, turn it into reality, and then continue to adjust it to meet changing circumstances and needs. From the opening of regional campuses to the development of assessment services and the STARS program, from the partnerships of Our House to the creation of the Rumford Center as a major training facility, Steve’s vision, and his ability to involve others in the vision, has been central to The Home’s progress and accomplishments. He has envisioned new buildings, new services, new locations, new collaborations, and new means of meeting the needs of the day. Not only The Methodist Home, but childcare in our state and across Methodism owes much to Steve Rumford’s vision. I am grateful God gave Steve Rumford a great heart for ministry, and that He enlightened Steve’s heart with hope and a vision of what God could achieve!

Planning 101 One and done. In sports, it’s a catchphrase for a team’s loss in the first game or match of a tournament. In estate planning, it’s the mind-set of people who think they’re done once they’ve put a will or trust in place. In truth, estate planning is an ongoing process. Ensure that your plan fulfills your goals—review it periodically, and adjust it if necessary. Also consider situations that may call for revisions to your will or other estate-planning documents. • • • • • • •

Marriage or divorce A major change in your financial status Birth or adoption of a child or grandchild Death of a spouse or existing beneficiary Death of an executor, trustee or other fiduciary A move to a new state or province A change in tax or estate planning laws

Try to conduct a thorough review of your plan every five years—even if none of the above events have occurred in your life. Talk with your attorney or financial advisor. Be sure to look over the beneficiary designations for your retirement and investment accounts, along with your life insurance policies, to determine whether the beneficiary designations should be updated. Making a will is simple and puts you in charge of your estate—instead of the government—for the benefit of your family and favorite charities. I pray that as you either make or revisit your will, that you will consider remembering the children and youth we serve here in ministry with a gift to The Foundation of The Methodist Home.

Thank you and God Bless! 34

Dr. Laudis H. (Rick) Lanford President / The Foundation of the Methodist Home of the South Georgia Conference, Inc.

Dear Steve, I will never forget the first day that we met over in the old cafeteria underneath the Burden Chapel. Rev. Emory Gilbert was so excited as he introduced you to all the ministers who were there that morning for Emory’s Friday Morning Coffee Group. I thank God for bringing our paths together for, “Such a time as this!” Thank you for bringing me to The Home. Your visionary leadership has brought great change to our campus and facilities. Like the prayer of Jabez, our territory has increased.God’s hand has surely been upon us and blessed us in this great ministry of The Methodist Home. I pray that God will continue to use you in great ways as He has so wonderfully done in this place. Your legacy of making a difference in the lives of children and youth will carry on for generations to come. God bless,

Dr. Lanford and Dr. Rum



The Foundation Hires New Chief Financial Officer It is with great joy that I announce The Foundation of The Methodist Home recently hired Caroline Edenfield as its new Chief Financial Officer. Caroline first came to The Methodist Home as an accountant for Vice President Bruce Stanfield in the finance department. She left the Home so that she could serve as the initial CFO for Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia. After working with the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia, Caroline worked as the Director of Practice Management for a wealth management practice. Some of Caroline’s responsibilities for the Foundation will include assisting the President in the day to day operations, maintaining audit schedules, working with present and past Estates, providing technical assistance to assure regulatory compliance, and participating in donor education events. “For such a time as this,” Caroline Edenfield returns to serve in ministry here at The Foundation of The Methodist Home. Caroline and her husband Brad are active members at Forsyth UMC. Caroline serves as the Finance Chairman of her Church and also serves on the Finance Committee for the Griffin District of the UMC. They have two sons, Monty and Jack. Caroline can be reached at or at 478-751-2866.
