[excerpt_text]Connectional Ministries helps your church identify and build its God-given strengths to fully impact lives, both inside and outside of your congregation.[/excerpt_text]
Churches come in all shapes and sizes, so we offer a strength-based process to help you figure out what you have that God can build upon. Then together we will map out a plan of action that is fruitful for your ministry. Learn more about the process on our What We Do page.
We also connect you and your congregation to:
- The vision, structure, and programs of our Conference and the general UMC
- Healthy Congregations and Effective Leader Initiatives
- Grants that equip churches for ministry
Our Executive Director/Church Revitalization Leader and Coordinators of Christian Formation, Leadership, Outreach Ministry, and Multicultural Ministries work directly with congregations, clergy, and our Conference Connectional Table (CCT). In their work with the CCT, they help conference boards, committees and agencies with visioning, strategic planning, budgeting, and evaluation so that these ministries may strengthen the work of local congregations. Read more about our work.
Our entire Connectional Team (listed below) is focused on serving congregations according to the mission of the North Carolina Conference. Explore and consider how our areas of service may intersect with the hopes and needs of your congregation. Then, contact us to see how we can work together to begin building on the strengths God has given you.
