The purpose of the Great Plains United Methodist Conference is to equip and connect congregations to make disciples of Jesus Christ. The conference’s missional priorities provide focus to our current context for ministry. As our context changes, so will our missional priorities.
Congregations and conference staff will be actively engaged in these priorities outlined in the Plan of Organization. Staff will be responsible for equipping and connecting congregations for greater disciple-making. Staff is organized into five main areas:
- Episcopal Office
- Clergy Excellence
- Congregational Excellence
- Mission and Justice
Staff will work toward the missional priorities of the conference:
- Enhancing the ministry of local churches
- Starting new churches
- Developing lay and clergy leaders
- Strengthening global mission partnerships
These priorities will be lifted up by each staffing area to equip and connect congregations to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
