UMC Committee looking at denomination’s future

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UMNS) — A committee charged with looking at the future of the denomination is conducting research and gathering data to be presented to the Council of Bishops and Connectional Table in November. “We’re looking at a number of critical areas, from the frequency and format of General Conference, to the size and number of boards and agencies, to creation of a global office, to development of leadership systems and addressing effectiveness of clergy,” said Bishop Larry Goodpaster, project director. The Call to Action committee was formed in response to the call issued by the Council of Bishops in May.
