Professional Administrators of the United Methodist Connectional Structure (PAUMCS) is an organization that supports administrators from all over the world including local churches, districts, conferences, episcopal, and general agency offices. The mission of PAUMCS is to provide a supportive base for the unity and fellowship of its members in order to provide individual growth, professional development, continuing education, and spiritual enrichment.
The Missouri Chapter of PAUMCS is excited to invite all pastors, administrators, and anyone else involved in the UMC connection to the PAUMCS Virtual Conference on April 15-17, 2021.
The theme for the Conference is Keeping our Eyes Focused on Christ,
and is based upon Hebrews 12:2, “And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
The conference is centered around 3 different themes, while remaining Christ-focused.
- Thursday, April 15 - Keeping our Eyes on Christ through the Role of Administrators
- Friday, April 16 - Keeping our Eyes on Christ through the Development of Disciples
- Saturday, April 17 - Keeping our Eyes on Christ through growing the Kingdom of God
Join us online to refresh and renew your focus on Christ through fellowship, education, and spiritual enrichment with fellow administrators. Check out the agenda, as there is an engaging and impactful line up of seminar speakers that will deepen your skills as an administrator and as a disciple of Christ. We need each other to learn from and lean on, especially in this time of uncertainty and stress. Administrators are the vital link for the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ in the world. Do not miss this opportunity!
