UMCOM General Conference 2020 legislation

Communication is vital to the church, just as it has been since the first century when the Apostle Paul wrote the letters we continue to read thousands of years later.

As the communications agency for The United Methodist Church, United Methodist Communications seeks to increase awareness and visibility of the denomination in communities and nations throughout the world. United Methodist Communications also serves the denomination at all levels, including local churches, by offering services, tools and resources for communications ministry.

Through numerous platforms and in multiple languages, United Methodist Communications strives to engage people with the story of God’s work at all levels of the church, as well as those outside the church, by creating dynamic content targeted to the interests of distinct audiences including church members, leaders and seekers.

The submitted legislation enables United Methodist Communications to continue to forge forward with its mission into the next quadrennium and beyond.
