Annual Conferences

Regional body

The annual (sometimes referred to as 'regional') conference is described by the church's Constitution and (other parts of the ) Book of Discipline as the "basic unit" of the church.

In the United States, an annual conference may cover an entire state, only part of the state, or even parts of two or more states. There are also three missionary conferences in the United States, which rely upon the denomination as a whole for funding.

The United States has 57 annual conferences, supervised by 46 bishops. There are 76 annual conferences in Africa, Europe, and the Philippines, which are supervised by 20 bishops.

 

We belong to the Wisconsin Annual Conference. It's boundaries are the state lines.

Our Bishop is Bishop Hee-Soo Jung, PhD. You can read messages from him by clicking HERE.

 

Districts

Each district is led by a district superintendent (“DS”), an elder appointed by the bishop, usually for a six-year term. The DS oversees the ministry of the district’s clergy and churches, provides spiritual and pastoral leadership, works with the bishop and others in the appointment of ordained ministers to serve the district’s churches, presides at meetings of the charge conference, and oversees programs within the district.

 

Brodhead United Methodist Church is in the South West District.

Our DS is Rev. SCott Carlson. You can read his blog by clicking HERE.
