Good News, Nomination Team Members! Nomination season is almost here for UMC congregations in the Western North Carolina Conference, and we are gearing up to offer you guidance and support as you invite leaders into the ministry of your local congregation for 2024! 

Mark your calendars (and RSVP, please) for  

More than the Methodist Shuffle:

A Guide for Nominating Your Best Local Church Leaders 

Sunday, August 27 | 4-5:30pm | Zoom

During this training, we will:

  • Offer you a practical process for casting a wide net to assemble the largest possible pool of leaders 
  • Help you move from doing the Methodist Shuffle* each year, to discerning the healthiest and most effective leaders to nominate
  • Create space for you to hear from the experience of others, and to share your questions with a group of other serving in the nominations process  

Rev. Dr. Mary John Dye, former District Superintendent and now Retired Elder in the Western North Carolina Conference, will offer words of wisdom as we take on this meaningful challenge together. Please RSVP by clicking above or here (the form simply asks for name, email, and if you will attend) to help us prepare.

*A term we affectionately use to describe moving the same people around to different leadership roles from year to year.
