2020 Ordinands


Joy In Ministry

As part of the Great Plains Conference's online ordination weekend amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we asked our ordinands, transfers, provisional members, Course of Study graduates and first -year local licensed pastors to tell us what brought them their greatest joy in ministry. This video shares the submitted videos of those who chose to participate.



The following pastors will become members in full connection after the Clergy Session on Oct. 2 and will be ordained during a service beginning at 2 p.m. CDT Oct. 3. The service can be viewed via livestream on our website at www.greatplainsumc.org/livestream.
