Given the potential impact and significance of the 2019 Annual Conference on the future of The United Methodist Church our Conference Secretary in collaboration with our conference staff is releasing the information regarding the number of lay member(s) each charge/church can send to annual conference.  This is called equalization and the numbers are based on the formula specified in the  2016 Book of Discipline. We recommend that churches and ministry settings build into their budget the cost of additional lay member(s) based on these numbers.

Local Church Officer Form report for your Church Conference needs to include the Lay Member(s) to annual conference to be voted on.  You can submit  find the form at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DDVGY5D)

If you have any questions about the number of lay member(s) your charge has received, please contact our Conference Secretary, Jen Lambert, 480-981-3833 or email:  jlambert@dscumc.org.

If you have any concerns about budgeting for additional lay member(s), please contact your District Superintendent
