 Annual Preference Forms

The Annual Preference forms are now being distributed to all appointed pastors and Pastor/ Staff-Parrish Relations Committee (SPRC) members.  (See Files linked below.)
  • Please carefully read and complete the forms.
  • Attach the proper signatures and return the forms to the District Office by January 9, 2019.
  • Appointments include Senior Pastors, Associates, Full-Time Local Pastors and Part-Time Local Pastors.
  • All Pastors and their respective Pastor/Staff Parish Committees should complete and return a form.
  • If you are planning to retire in 2019, please indicate this on the form before returning.
Information from pastors and SPR Committees are a significant part of the consultation process, as the Bishop and Cabinet make decisions concerning appointments for 2019.
In accordance with 428 of the United Methodist Book of Discipline (2016) the Bishop and Cabinet will ultimately decide when pastors are moved and where they are appointed.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the District Office at (205) 226-7983 and we will be glad to assist you.
