Leadership of the disaster response effort of the Mississippi Conference is the responsibility of the director of connectional ministries and the conference disaster response committee. It is chaired by the conference disaster response coordinator and includes district disaster response coordinators from each of the 11 districts and the conference United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) coordinator. Additional at-large members may be asked to serve as the need arises. Individual members of the committee may have specific operational functions, but the task of the committee is to establish policies and evaluate effectiveness of the conference disaster response effort.

Mississippi Conference Disaster Recovery  

Rev. Victoria White
Director of Connectional Ministries and Communications 

 Vickie has the role of connecting people and churches with each other and the greater connection of The United Methodist Church. We do that by overseeing and planning the Session of the Mississippi Annual Conference, UMCOR, UMVIM, the Mississippi Conference Board of Global Ministries, Discipleship Ministries and youth and family ministries among other things. In communications we seek ways to communicate the mission and vision of the Mississippi Conference to members of local churches. In addition, we resource local churches as they seek to be a witness for Jesus Christ in their communities and around the world.
