Healthy Congregations and Effective Leaders in Every Place Making Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.
Connectional Ministries offers supportive partnerships and strength-based resources as congregations vision about their present and future. We also link pastors, congregations, district and conference leaders to the general UMC, and to the mission, vision, and structure of our conference.
Here are some of our initiatives and grants designed to equip and encourage you and your church in your work together.
UMC Call to Action
Every local church has the unique opportunity to impact lives inside and outside of their congregation. Our entire UMC has been asked to fully understand where we are as a connectional church and where God is calling us to be. Learn more about it online through the Leadership Summit website.
