    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church

    news article

    Nominations being accepted for Conference leadership vacancies

    March 5, 2019 / By Rev. Tony Hipes

    Editor’s Note: The following letter from the Chair of the Upper New York Conference Committee on Nominations was shared on Mar. 5.

    Dear Friends,

    I am serving as the chair of our Conference Committee on Nominations, the team responsible for identifying and recruiting persons to serve on Conference ministry teams.  We are beginning our work of developing a list of nominees for consideration at our upcoming Annual Conference session (June 5-8).  While each Conference ministry team has a focus, all exist to equip clergy, laity, and their churches to live our mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world.  The nominations team believes all the gifts needed to live this mission have been given to the people of Upper New York by God. 

    Therefore, I’d like to invite you to consider serving as a member of one of our Conference ministry teams.  Click here for descriptions of several ministry teams with known vacancies as of July 1, 2019. If you are willing and able to make yourself available to serve on one of these teams, we would be grateful to you for completing the nominations form. Click here for the nomination form.

    Nominations forms need to be completed by Mar. 19 for consideration at our Committee on Nominations meeting later in the week.

    Thanks for your prayerful consideration.

    Rev. Tony Hipes
