District Committees/Teams/UMW

 Would you like to get involved in the United Methodist Church beyond the local church level?

Servant opportunities for lay and clergy members in the Vermont District include:

District Ministry Team

This team will work together to help the District with visioning, planning, and programming as we try to live into God's desire for us. If you have a heart for the United Methodists in Vermont and a hope for what we can be and do, then this might be for you! [TOP]

Committee on Finance and Mission Share Relief

The District Finance Committee is composed of lay and clergy members who serve as a resource for local churches with regard to education about stewardship and financial matters. The committee also is available as a resource for concerns about Mission Shares and has been proactive in working with churches who have struggled to meet their obligations. Current chair is the Rev. Greg Smith. [TOP]

Church Location and Building

This committee is chaired by Rev. Kirk Thompson. The committee serves as a resource for local congregations that are considering such things as church improvement projects related to buildings/properties or the disposition or acquisition of property and facilities. [TOP]

District Superintendency Committee 

This committee relates to the District Superintendent, providing support for the ministry of the District Superintendent and serving as eyes and ears on the district. This group will be involved with the consideration of a new location for the district office and parsonage. [TOP]

District Leadership Committee

These committee members serve as “talent scouts” in the district. They help to identify people who have gifts and graces for service beyond the local church, and ultimately provide nominations for leaders and members of the district committees and teams. [TOP]

District Parsonage Committee

If you want tangible, physical results, consider this committee! The district parsonage in Williston often needs maintenance and repair work, so part of this committee's work is arranging for the completion of such tasks in coordination with the Conference Trustees. This group will be involved involved with the consideration of a new location for the district parsonage. [TOP]
