The Coastal Plains Regional Team welcomes all newly elected local church leaders in congregations of the Cape Atlantic, Central, and Delaware Bay districts.

Thank you for offering your gift in servant leadership to move forward our shared mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, and the vision your local church.

We want you to thrive in your new leadership role! The Back2Basics Orientation Video Series provides a foundational self-paced on-line learning experience to newly elected and returning local church leaders to help them better understand their role and responsibilities and provide resources so that they can lead effectively in their congregations and community.

Originally offered in 2021, we are once again offering orientation videos for new and returning members of the following congregational leadership teams:

  • Staff Parish Relations
  • Church Council Chair
  • Finance
  • Trustees
  • Lay Leader and Lay Delegate

In addition to access to the learning videos, participants will receive the Official United Methodist Guidelines for these key leadership roles in PDF format for future reference.

When you complete this registration you will be asked to select one of the five offered subject areas. You will then receive a confirmation email which will let you know when to expect the materials.

We look forward to sharing these resources with you!
