Candidating for the methodist church
Now that you've heard a bit about me I'm looking forward to getting to meeting you all at Wesley and am looking forward to a happy time together.ACE magazine Awards 2018 – submit your entry now Explore your vocation at Oxford Place, Leeds, Find out what the DMLN can do for you and much more …Apportionments are the currency of the UMC, not changed lives.Were there changes that the UMC could have made in their structures that would have allowed you to stay affiliated?All three of these congregations were newly planted churches, and at least two have affiliated with the Nevada based Central Christian Church.We recently had the opportunity to speak to the Jack Kale, pastor of the Central Waterside Church, located on Pensacola Beach, FL.
If Mike Slaughter and Adam Hamilton can’t work out a way to bring a systemic or structural change to the UMC, who can?
“Feeling Called” is facilitated by the Candidates Secretaries and the Discipleship and Ministries Learning Network. Please can you help by passing on the new date to anyone you are aware of locally who may have been interested in coming.
(I will personally contact those who had advised me of their intention to attend, but I am concerned that some people may just go along.)Feeling Called on 9 May is open to anyone considering candidating whether in the coming year or perhaps at a future time.
Jack, a former elder in the UMC, started the Waterside Church while on the staff of the Gulf Breeze UMC.
Jack is a graduate of the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. This put me in the position of continuing to serve where I felt called and with people who wanted me to be their pastor or having to leave to a new church in another state.
