» On 16 July 1925, Rev. John J. Cecil (A retired minister of the former Washington Conference and a member of the Asbury Quarterly Conference of Annapolis) decided that there should be a Methodist Episcopal Church in Camp Parole. With that thought in mind,     Rev. Cecil started The Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church which was often referred to as, “Asbury Mission” and “Little Mission.” This was the first Methodist Episcopal Church in Camp Parole.

» The first Pastor was appointed by the Conference in 1926. The pastors who have had the honor of serving this great church are:      Rev. Benjamin S. Holt, Rev. Grafton Anderson, Rev. Benjamin Gross, Rev. D. A. Keats, Rev. W. I. Johnson,  Rev. James E. Johnson, Rev. Eugene Matthews, Rev. Thomas H. Brooks, Rev. Charles Green, Rev. William H. Davis, Rev. Michael C. Braxton,                           Rev. Mary W. Conaway, Rev. Dr. Reginald Tarpley, and Pastor Patricia A. Turnage.
