North Alabama Conference teams, committees, commissions, and Conference-related organizations are invited to share a report in the Journal vol. 1 (PreConference Book) of the North Alabama Conference describing their ministry over the past year. Groups are asked to highlight how their ministry is working toward the Conference Mission of Discover, Develop and Deploy Spiritual Leaders to make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.
All reports submitted for publication in the Journal vol. 1 (PreConference Book) should be submitted no later than Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, as a Microsoft Word or Google Document and attached in an email to the following email address:
Include "Pre-Conference Report" in the subject line.
Any report that requires action by the Annual Conference not received by the Feb. 1, 2018, deadline may be considered for distribution during the 2018 Annual Conference at the discretion of the Director of Connectional Ministries and/or the Conference Secretary. If approved, your report will be assigned a letter. Your team should provide 1,500 copies of the report.
Submitting a report to the North Alabama Annual Conference is a wonderful way to connect North Alabama United Methodist congregations to your team or organization’s ministry. It also helps the Conference record highlights of your ministry for generations to come through the historical record of the Journal.
To work toward the goals of higher readership for reports and to be better stewards of paper and printing funds, here are a few guidelines for your printed report.
