Conference Strategic Planning Team Requests Your Input

At the 2012 New England Annual Conference session, the Bishop’s Financial Summit team recommended the formation of a Strategic Planning Team in recognition of the significant adaptive challenges we face as a Church. The resolution, RS-212, called for this team to examine and make proposals to the Annual Conference that will guide us in addressing both the opportunities and risks for missional life in this present age. As the resolution states, “…we seek to take the steps necessary to meet the challenges of our time and ministries faithfully, comprehensively and strategically.”


At the 2013 Annual Conference session, the Strategic Planning team presented a report, and then engaged in some in-depth and interactive listening and sharing time with Annual Conference clergy and lay members.

The team is now actively engaging with conference groups, committees, boards and agencies to gain additional input and insight into the work of creating a strategic plan for the New England Conference.


The Strategic Planning team is also seeking input from any and all persons around the Conference that wish to share thoughts, issues, and ideas. An online form is available to allow everyone to provide feedback — all clergy and church members, adults and youth, are encouraged to participate in offering your thoughts and perspectives.

We hope all will take a few moments to view the survey and offer your thoughts and ideas. Please visit for more information on the Strategic Planning Team and process.
