AC2017: Episcopal Address


Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr., in his first episcopal address to the Great Plains Annual Conference, provides five pathways for congregational vitality:\
  1. Start new small groups for people in and outside of your church
  2. Reach and spiritually form the children in your community 
  3. Work collaboratively with other UM churches in your community, county, and region to create a collective and synergistic missional impact
  4. Foster an atmosphere of prayer and dialogue in your congregation and among the other Great Plains constituents
  5. Seek to create a robust culture of missional purpose and movement at the local, county, and regional levels supported by the right strategy and the passionate thrust of capable clergy and laity
