Discipleship Ministries | Our Membership Vows in The United Methodist…Every four years, United Methodists from around the world assemble as the General Conference and connect in worship, prayer, Communion, fellowship — and the legislative work that shapes our shared life. General Conference delegates confer and vote on proposals for resourcing and regulating the life and work of The United Methodist Church. General Conference makes binding decisions related to the connectional and missional life of The United Methodist Church. It is the only body authorized to speak for or as The United Methodist Church. Any call must state the purpose of the special session.

While we understand that many of you will be assisted in this process by various members of your church or church staff, the senior pastor should be the final person to review the information and ensure the correct information is submitted for your church. This process is very similar to what you did in completing your church and clergy profiles.
As our church has grown and become more complex 13 committees and 44 ministries , the challenge we continue to face is how to simplify an administrative pathway that sets direction, encourages creativity, establishes a blueprint for actions and supports the Mission, Vision and Ministries of our church in a timely manner. The goal is to support the Senior Pastor; provide a decision-making pathway that is simple, responsive and timely; and improve operating efficiency and accountability of administrative functions., Tel: Fax: Website: www.
