Conference Leadership

The Missouri Annual Conference is committed to excellent and diverse leadership in all areas. In order for the Nominations Committee to make selections for the Conference leadership, nominees must be in the Conference leadership pool. We rely on your nominations to fill Conference leadership positions. This will be done through an application filled out by the nominee and a pastoral reference. This nominee’s name will then be placed in a leadership pool that will be drawn from for leadership needs of the Conference. Any professing member of a local church in the Missouri Conference or licensed, provisional or ordained clergy-person may be nominated into the leadership pool. Nominees are not considered “in the pool” until they have completed their profile, which asks for basic demographic information and the applicant’s experience and skills.
