The North Carolina Conference Board of Church and Society seeks to relate the gospel of Jesus Christ to the members of our churches and to the persons and structures of the communities and world in which they live. We seek to equip churches, their pastors, and their membership to bring the whole of human life, activities, possessions, use of resources, and community and world relationships into conformity with the will of God.
The word of the Board covers a variety of responsibilities, including providing social education, service, witness, and action on issues confronting the Church consistent with the Social Principles and the policies adopted by the General Conference. The Board also promotes the Peace with Justice program and offers grants to local congregations for program development.
