ORV Lay Servant Ministries Advanced Course "Life Together in the UM Connection - UMC Polity" (Mar 2019)
This course gives participants an overview of the structure and organization of The United Methodist Church.

Why does the United Methodist Church do things the way it does? Why is our pastor being reassigned? Why don’t we get to vote on our new pastor? What are the rules – and why are they the rules? What happens at General Conference that may affect us? And what does any of this have to do with trying to be a place and a people that embody the Kingdom of God?

This course will help church leaders answer questions, help newcomers to the UMC get their bearings, and help longtime members consider the specific structural challenges the church faces in the 21st Century.

Instructor: Bill Smith, CLS
