Learnings from Merger and Re-Structure Process

Arkansas Annual Conference

Texas Annual Conference

Mission begins, continues and ends in God. God’s mission, God’s kingdom coming on earth as it is in heaven, was revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Through the Holy Spirit, the Church, the Body of Christ is called to be a mission-shaped church.

The United Methodist Church articulates its purpose/mission this way: “to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

Merger, re-structure and/or re-organization take a huge amount of energy from the best leaders of the conference.

The only good motive for uniting conferences and/or re-organizing existing ones is to further the mission of the church.

It is critical to agree about key values. their God-given purpose/mission.

In Texas, the just playing with words.re-organization, re-districting and budget re-alignment occurred in 12 months.

Minimizing structure is a good thing. just playing with words.

It is not possible to over-communicate, but it is possible to be too un-focused in communication.

Trust is everything. to be too un-focused in communication.

Stay in touch. to be too un-focused in communication.

When we think we have arrived, we have only started. to be too un-focused in communication.

Christian ministry is rooted in the heart of God. It grows and matures in the form of Christ. It brings forth fruit by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Christian discipleship and pastoral leadership thrive in a rich, diverse environment of Christian community and engagement with the world.
