While much remains unknown about next year’s Michigan Annual Conference, we have already begun planning. As District Lay Leader, I have the opportunity to invite 26 laity to be voting members to equal the number of clergy members.
These Lay Equalization members shall have been professing members of The UMC for at least two years and shall have been active participants in The UMC for at least four years (not applicable for youth under 18). Their basic expenses would be paid for by the Conference. Emphasis in selection includes new faces, ethnic and geographic representation, and young adults.
If interested, please submit a 2021 Lay Equalization Application to me by Dec 25. Contact me if you have any questions!
