Welcome to the 2017 Charge Conference page.
The Mississippi Annual Conference—empowered by love, generosity, justice and apprenticeship—forms spiritual leaders, faith communities and connections so more disciples of Jesus Christ transform the world.
You will find very little change to the forms from last year. Two big changes are:
1) the format is pdf, not an online data entry process that you must log into on a separate website
2) the congregation’s report questions from the Vital Congregations Committee.
We hope these changes will be helpful as you prayerfully plan for the ministries of 2018.
The Mississippi Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church is beginning a focus on intentional disciple-making systems which is specifically found in the congregation’s report questions. Please be sure to allow for plenty of time to focus on these questions within your congregation(s).
Additional instructions will be forth coming from your district superintendent.
Rev. Vickie White
Director of Connectional Ministries and Communications
