Join Nate Berneking, Director of Finance & Administration, and his staff at one of the 2017 Roadshow workshops this October. Nate will once again travel the state to provide updates on clergy compensation and Conference group health insurance. Specifically, he will discuss the small change being made to the defined contribution (the amount full-time clergy receive to cover their individual premiums). He will walk through details relating to how individuals might make decisions when it comes to selecting plans, and he and staff will provide much-requested training on the Pastoral Support Form and a new Addendum full-time clergy must complete in October and November. Full-time clergy, spouses and any church business administrators or treasurers should attend to learn more about compensation, health insurance and payroll. The Roadshow will come to the following churches and districts:
1st Kirksville 10/4 9am-11am Mark Twain
Wesley (St. Joseph) 10/4 3pm-5pm Northwest
Harrisonville 10/5 10am-12pm Heartland

Lay Servant 1-Day Worskshop
The Lay Servant Workshop will be Saturday, Oct 28 and Saturday, Nov 4 at Smithville UMC from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, lunch will be provided.
- Basic Course: Looking for leadership training? – Offered both Saturdays
- Go Preach: Called to preach but need to know how to start? – Offered Oct. 28th
- Living our United Methodist Beliefs: What to learn more about what it means to be a United Methodist? – Offered Nov. 4th
Please note: we are trying something new this year!! Instead of requiring people to attend two Saturday’s to receive credit, we are offering a 1-day course with requiring attendees to do two hours of pre-course work (reading the book or an assignment from the instructor) at home before they attend the course.
Another change, we are asking attendees to order their own book this year. Since there is pre-course work to do, we want everyone to have the book as quickly as possible. Books can be purchased through Cokesbury.com, Amazon.com, or at your favorite Christian book retailer. If assistance is needed in ordering your book, please let us know. We are happy to help.
Registration and payment are due by October 13. Click here to view and print the registration form.
