I believe time is running out on churches that are leaning towards leaving the UMC
Churches put a lot of energy and time into preparing for their charge conference vote on whether or not to leave the UMC. But it’s way too early to think the work is done. There is a boatload of legal and administrative work that needs to happen. I’ll go you an overview with plenty of links and resources in this post.
As an accountant, I started out loving Red Tape. I liked being able to navigate all the tax rules and forms. I knew that people would need me to guide them through the process.
20 years later, I’m not as big of a fan. Red Tape makes ordinary work more complicated. So…which denomination is making more work for their churches through Red Tape?
This is a different post than usual. I had an interview with retired pastor, Roger Spahr. Roger had served as a District Superintendent and had had success in recruiting pastors. Roger shares his thoughts on what he looks for in a potential pastor as well as some valuable advice for churches in need of a pastor.
Last week I looked at the cost difference between the United Methodists and the Global Methodists. This week I’m looking at the benefits. This was a difficult one as the GMC is only about four months old. They have more promises than proven benefits. I still did make an effort with what I’m aware of. I hope it helps!
