Pre-Conference Reports, Annual Conference 2021

February 23, 2021
Plans are quickly coming together for the 2021 Session of the Louisiana Annual Conference, May 22, with our digital partners, GoodNews TV. 

Even during this year of unpredictability and change, your leadership, and the work of your ministry area, has been instrumental in continuing and strengthening the mission and work of the church – to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.    

Reports of Boards and Agencies for the Pre-Conference Report are due by March 13 and may be submitted by clicking here.
 

Submit My Report



You may also submit your report via email, adhering to the guidelines outlined below, to journal@la-umc.org.     

Nominations for Boards of agencies that are related to and approved by the Annual Conference are also due by March 13. 

If your report includes sub-sections prepared by other members of your ministry area, it is your responsibility to coordinate and collate that material. 

Try to include in your report the following:
  • Accomplishments and celebrations of your work that contributed significantly to leading others into an abundant life in Christ; engaging communities – locally and globally; learning, living and telling the Gospel story; and reaching out and drawing in people from all walks of life resulting in vibrant, alive and vital congregations
  • Measurable goals for the coming year and how they contribute to our preferred future
  • Concerns and challenges facing your work/ministry area
  • Items for action/vote by the Annual Conference
Remember – excessively long reports may be abbreviated at the editor’s discretion.  Succinct reports have great impact!  There will be no verbal reports. 

All reports must be submitted in writing to appear in the Pre-Conference Report and the Conference Journal.  

If, however, your area has an item or resolution for action (Section d of your report), please submit your request to Kyle Wooldridge by April 22 so that it can be scheduled.
