Charge Conferences 2020

Hello friends,
Welcome to Charge Conference 2020, where we will Zoom together through the ministry of the church.

Please keep in mind our process for paperwork for the 2020 Charge Conferences.
The SPRC paperwork and the compensation form MUST be emailed totrice@michiganumc.orgat least 10 days prior to the scheduled SPRC meeting or charge conference – whichever happens first. There are no exceptions.

To help make things easier for churches, we require the following paperwork be emailed BEFORE the charge conference.
Email these forms (signature not required):
Business of the Church
Profile of the Church
SPRC Evaluation  

Joint Dialogue
Pastor Self Evaluation
Pastoral Compensation

However: All paperwork requiring a signature must be mailed in (including SPRC and comp form) to the district office within two weeks of  the charge conference date. 

If you have any questions – please contact the office at or 989.793.8838.

Mailing address for District Office:
3764 Fashion Square Blvd.
Saginaw, MI 48603

Each Charge will have its own Conference – held electronically through Zoom. Links will be provided one week prior to meeting date.
The Ad Council/Board or Leadership Team will be the voting members. This means there should be conversations happening now about the voting items so that the Board/Team can BEST represent the whole congregation.
 The Agenda can be found here

The DS will begin with a short devotional, the recording secretary will be voted on and the rest of the agenda will be followed and finally, host pastor will close in prayer.
Each conference is expected to last approximately 15 minutes. This is a short time frame, so if you are responsible for bringing a voting item forward, please be prepared.
All Charge Conference FORMS can be found here

All forms MUST be electronically submitted 10 days prior to conference or SPRC meeting; whichever occurs first.  The SPRC and Charge Conference schedule was emailed in July. If you didn’t see the schedule, it is here. Any form that requires a signature must be signed and mailed to the district office within two weeks of conference date.
Mailing address: Central Bay District, 3764 Fashion Square Blvd., Saginaw, MI 48603 (All forms that require signatures)
The Staff Parish Relations Committee will have a one hour meeting with the DS through Zoom. The purpose of this meeting is to give the DS a clear picture of the mission, ministry and goals of the church. DS Kasper will carefully review all SPRC forms turned in 10 days prior to this meeting. Please make sure they accurately reflect the heart of the church.
Please check our web site often for updates.
