It is time again to prepare for Annual Conference. District churches are invited to nominate up to two members from their church to the Commission on the Laity for consideration as an equalization member to the Michigan Annual Conference 2019. As always, these positions are allotted to districts around the state in proportion to district membership of the Michigan UMC Conference. Pastors and elected Lay Members to Annual Conference elected by their Church Charge Conference are financially supported by their church and would not apply.
The Greater Detroit District seeks to make all churches aware of the available positions. The Commission on the Laity hopes a diverse group of members will take advantage of the opportunity to attend conference. The applicant maybe a newer member, but must have been active in your church life for at least 2 years. They may be male or female with ages ranging from 12 yrs. & up.
