the connectional table

The Connectional Table is where vision, ministry and money are brought to the same table to coordinate the mission, ministries, and resources of The United Methodist Church.


The Connectional Table has been collaboratively engaged in:

  • Identifying four areas of focus for churchwide ministry;
  • Sponsoring research on the state of
    the Church; and
  • Laying the groundwork for equitable change as the Church grows worldwide.
