Ministries of Faith in Action
The Communication Commission guides and assists the communications staff and volunteers of the Desert Southwest Conference in their mission to facilitate Christian disciple-making through communications ministries, particularly (1) by facilitating communications within and among the agencies, leaders, and membership of the Desert Southwest Conference and (2) by helping to equip local congregations to communicate with their membership and communities. The Communication Commission’s work focuses on and guides the communications ministries of the Desert Southwest Conference as directed by ¶646 of the Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church and as guided by the guidelines adopted by the Annual Conference and the Communication Commission members.
