Pastors Conferences

The Indiana District Bylaws establish certain annual pastoral conferences, at which active pastors’ participation is required. The first is the Fall Pastors Conference, which brings together all active pastors of the district, as well as emeriti.  Vicars and other church workers are also welcome. All churches of the district share the cost of the event, which includes continuing education, district reporting, recognition awards, and opportunities for the pastors of the district to interact and connect.  This event is normally held in mid-to-late October.

The second conference is split between our Northern (Circuits 1-11) and Southern (Circuits 12-24) areas.  Each area elects officers, and has a committee that plans the particulars for their individual conference.  Similar to the Fall Pastors Conference in its inclusion of furthering education and interaction, the Spring Conference has the added benefit of smaller groups and more individualized connectivity.  Pastors can produce, through this official conference, overtures for convention. The Northern and Southern Spring Conferences are held on their own dates, normally in May.

More details on these annual conferences are found below.
