General Conference News

March 2, 2019

Dear Pastors,


United Methodist Communications has put together a couple of resourses I wanted to share with you. The first is called Points for Pastors, and it focuses on things you can say this Sunday as you talk to your congregation about what happened at General Conference 2019, as well as, what to expect going forward. The second resource is a sample letter you could send to your church that begins to open a dialog between you and those you serve.


As we develop and receive additional resources, I will be sure to pass them along. Thanks for all you do. May God continue to guide you and bless your ministry.


Be Hope,


Tim Jones

Director of Communications
