“One of the essential functions of The Connectional Table is to collaborate with the General Council on Finance and Administration about the development of the budget. This is a process that invites participation and input from various groups across the connection. I had an opportunity to meet with a group of treasurers for our boards and agencies and GCFA staff last week to discuss the process that GCFA and CT have adopted for this quadrennium. It’s exciting to me that our conversation focused on the mission of our church---to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world---as the starting point for alignment of our resources.


What’s the starting point for budget discussions in your annual conferences and local churches?”

Please see the below video of Sherri Thiel, Treasurer of United Methodist Communications, as she talks briefly about this process.
