What do we need to do after we have had our church conference?
A copy of the minutes from your church conference should be sent to your Regional Administrator as soon as possible (¶ 247.4). Doing this will also prevent you from having to submit these minutes during the next conference season.
Anything else of which we should be aware?
Yes! Please respond quickly if you are contacted by either your Regional Administrator or the Benefits Department. This could be for multiple reasons: more signatures are needed on the Clergy Compensation Report, you need to complete a new Contribution Election Form for UMPIP, or the benefits department needs to clarify something regarding a pastor’s salary and benefits. Additionally, please email your final 2019 church budget to your Regional Administrator by December 31 if you have not already provided a final copy of it.
