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 in a Microsoft Word or Google Document submitted by email no later than Friday, Feb. 1, 2020, 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 annual February 1, deadline may be considered for distribution during the 2020 Annual Conference at the discretion of the Director of Connectional Ministries and/or the Conference Secretary. If approved, that report will be assigned a letter. Teams submitting late reports should provide 1,500 copies of the report for distribution at Annual Conference.
Submitting a report to the North Alabama Annual Conference allows North Alabama United Methodist congregations to connect with your team or organization’s ministry. It also allows the Conference to record highlights and critical information about your ministry for generations to come through the historical record of the Conference 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 printed reports.
