For Immediate Release September 19, 2022

Greetings East Jackson Clergy,

Original email and instructions

As mentioned on our August 25th clergy eBlast about annual requirements, I look forward to meeting with you as part of your ongoing consultation. This conversation is an opportunity for self-reflection and discernment.

Like in previous years, if you are sensing a need or desire to move next year, schedule a time at the earliest available opportunity. 

Please do not procrastinate!  There is no time like the present. These meetings will be held at the Methodist Foundation of Mississippi in Ridgeland

To sign up for your appointment, click here.

In preparation for your ongoing consultation meeting I am asking all clergy to reflect on:

  1. How is it with your soul?
     
  2. The eBinder of information that you receive prior to your meeting. Reflecting on the reports listed below, what do you see that may encourage disciple-making?
    1. Ezra (year-end statistics for the past 12 years),
    2. MissionInsite (demographic data about the people who live around your church) and
    3. Prosper (mission shares year to date summary report)

As always, thank you for your continued work and ministry.

Gratefully,

Rev. Dr. Connie Mitchell Shelton
District Superintendent
