2008 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

...in the Ltfx of God 

"Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim till all the world adore his 
sacred name." United Methodists from across the North Carolina Conference 
gather for a third year in Greenville. Delegates and clergy sing the hymns of faith, 
worship by the waters of baptism and at Table. The conference conducts 
appropriate business, adopts resolutions, and makes appointments. During the 
gathered time delegates and participants experience the witness of God's 
incredible love lived out in local congregations. The Church celebrates its witness 
offaithfuldiscipleshipand its vision to move to all corners of the world. 

The Cross lifted high in each session reminds us of our call to be an "Acts 
2 Church": Radical Hospitality, Passionate Worship, Intentional Spiritual 
Formation, and Risk-Taking Mission and Ministry to the World. The Church meets 
to affirm our connection in mission and ministry in offering Christ. The scriptures 
shape us as a people and propel us forward for the work of building God's 
kingdom. 

This is the last year of our Quadrilateral theme: in the light of God. In 
previous years the focus has been: Worshipping, Walking, and Working. 
Witnessing. ..in the Light of God is the fourth year theme. Placing this in 
Wesley's Quadrilateral -what experiences give evidence of the Holy Spirit working 
in our lives, in our churches, in our conference? 

The conference gathers under the Cross, lifting it high as the proclamation 
of faith, the pathway of service. While we gather, the Cross and the flame mark 
the location of hundreds of United Methodist Churches scattered throughout the 
conference. We depart empowered to take back to those places of service a 
renewed spirit of offering the high calling of God in our lives.

larly scheduled and to all called sessions of the North Carolina Annual Confer 
ence. * [See note at end of Conference Rules] 

D. These rules of order and procedure may be amended by a two-thirds (2/3) vote 
on the next day after a proposed amendment has been presented in writing.

at the Clergy Executive Session and the Lay Member Executive Session of the 
Annual Conference. 

D. The Committee on Resolutions and Reference shall schedule all properly pre 
sented resolutions for consideration by the Annual Conference. The scheduling

recommendation. 

E. A resolution is considered "presented" to the Annual Conference when it is

report to the annual conference* daily. 

F. Any report, recommendation, resolution, or motion requiring funding beyond 
the Annual Conference budget as presented by the Council on Finance and 
Administration shall be submitted in writing to the Conference Secretary with

report, recommendation, resolution, or motion shall be presented at the 
annual conference* on one day and considered the next day. No such report, 
recommendation, resolution, or motion shall be distributed later than the 
second night of the annual conference. All such reports, recommenda- 
tions, resolutions, or motions shall be referred to the Annual Conference 
Council on Finance and Administration. 

Speeches 

A Speeches shall be limited to three (3) minutes except by consent of the Annual 
Conference, discussion shall alternate between pro and con.

of the first session. 

B. A count vote may be ordered or called by any member of the Annual Confer- 
ence supported by one-fifth (1/5) of the members present and voting. 

Election of Delegates to General and Jurisdictional Conferences 

A All votes shall be cast using the official ballot cards authorized by the Annual 
Conference. Voting for all lay and clergy delegates to General and Jurisdic- 
tional Conferences shall be by secret ballot. 

B. Prior to the convening of any annual conference* that will elect delegates to 
General and Jurisdictional Conferences, the Conference Secretary will 
publish eligibility requirements and voting procedures for election of del 
egates. 

C. Different colored ballot cards will be provided for lay and clergy members. 

D. The names of persons receiving less than ten (10) votes shall not be reported 

to the Conference. 

E. Five alternates to Jurisdictional Conference shall be elected. 

F. Invalid ballot cards 

1) Each round of balloting shall be numbered consecutively, and the chair 
shall announce the number of the ballot. Only ballot cards with the proper 
number affixed shall be valid. 

2) Defaced ballot cards will be considered invalid. If a member defaces a 
ballot card, it may be exchanged for an undamaged one at the Conference 
Secretary's desk. 



239 



3) An electronic ballot card will be considered invalid if it is not marked 
clearly and darkly with a number 2 pencil or black pen. 

4) A ballot card will be considered invalid if it has more or less than the 
number of votes permitted on that particular ballot. 

5) A ballot card will be considered invalid if it indicates a vote for a person 
already elected. 

6) A ballot card will be considered invalid if it indicates a vote for someone 
not eligible. 

7) A ballot card will be considered invalid if it shows that a member has 
voted more than once on the same ballot card for one candidate. 

6. Episcopal Nominations 

At the conclusion of an Annual Conference that conducts elections for clergy and 
lay delegates to General Conference and Jurisdictional Conference, the entire newly 
elected Delegation (clergy and laity) will meet. The first clergy elected will be acknowl- 
edged as an automatic nominee for bishop. Other nominations will be received from 
members of the delegation. (All nominees must meet the qualifications for bishop 
established by the Southeastern Jurisdiction and by The United Methodist Church.) As 
soon as possible, officers of the Delegation, and/or those whom they designate, will 
contact the nominees and give them three weeks to discern God's will for their 
ministries. Those who accept nomination must submit, by July 15, a one-page 
biographical statement to the Delegation Secretary, who will distribute all such 
statements to all members of the Delegation. Before September 1, the Delegation will 
meet and engage the nominees. This day of discernment will include each nominee: 
making a presentation (10 minutes), responding to a set of questions composed by 
the Delegation officers or those whom they designate (10 minutes), responding to 
questions from the floor of the meeting (10 minutes), and offering closing remarks (1 
minute). Immediately after meeting with the nominees, the Delegation will vote, 
perhaps several times, by written ballot. The nominee, who earns the Delegation's 
endorsement, must receive at least 60% of the votes cast. If after 5 votes the Delega- 
tion present has not cast 60% (or more) of its ballots for one nominee, the Delegation 
and the Annual Conference will not endorse an episcopal nominee in that election 
cycle. At the Annual Conference immediately before Jurisdictional Conference, the 
Delegation's nominee will make a brief speech and be endorsed (or not) by vote of the 
Annual Conference; endorsement by the Annual Conference requires at least 60% of 
the votes cast. If after 3 votes the Annual Conference members present have not cast 
60% (or more) of their ballots for one nominee, the Annual Conference will not endorse 
an episcopal nominee in that election cycle. A nominee endorsed by the Annual 
Conference becomes the Annual Conference's nominee for bishop. This policy 
becomes effective August 1, 2008. 
Section II : Districts 

1. Number of Districts 

A The number of districts shall be twelve. A motion to change the number of 
districts must be presented in writing, and must be considered no sooner 
than the day following its introduction. Any change in the number of districts 
shall be approved at one annual conference to take effect at the next annual 
conference.* 

2. District Conferences 

A A district conference may be held annually in each district. 

B. The district conference, if one is held, shall be composed of members as 
determined and specified by the Annual Conference giving attention to 
inclusiveness. The members shall include all North Carolina clergy members 



240 



within the district, including retirees; district trustees; district presidents of the 

United Methodist Youth Fellowship, the United Methodist Men, and United Methodist 

Women; lay members of the Annual Conference; the Lay Leader of each local church; 

and up to ten at-large members appointed by the District Superintendent to insure 

inclusiveness. The business of the district conference shall be in accordance with 2004 

Book of Discipline paragraph 656-657. 

3. The Annual Conference shall elect the district Lay Leaders annually, upon nomination 

by each District Superintendent and the Annual Conference Lay Leader. 
Section HI : Conference Structure 

1. The membership of the Annual Conference is to be as outlined in the complete Lay/ 
Clergy Equalization Plan found in the 1991 Journal pages 400 - 01. 

2. Committees and Boards 

A Tenure for membership for all persons on boards, agencies, commissions, 
committees, and ministry groups shall be four years with possibility of re-election 
for a second four-year term. 

B. The Annual Conference Board of Trustees shall meet at least twice a year at 
times and places designated by the board. The annual meeting shall be held 
either at the annual conference* or within thirty (30) days prior thereto. 

C. There shall be a Program and Planning Committee for the annual conference 
consisting of the Bishop; Assistant to the Bishop; the Conference Secretary; 
Conference Treasurer; the host District Superintendent; the Annual Conference 
Lay Leader; the Annual Conference Presidents of the United Methodist Men, United 
Methodist Women, the United Methodist Youth Fellowship; the Executive Director 
of Connectional Ministries, and other persons selected by the Bishop. The 
committee shall determine the compensation and expense for invited 
speakers, who shall be paid from the annual conference expense fund. The 
committee will receive invitations and may also make recommendations for the 
site of the annual conference.* 

D. On a rotating basis the Cabinet will designate a district each year as the host 
district for the annual conference. The host district will be responsible for 
ushers, flowers, and other similar items of hospitality related to the annual 
conference.* 

E. The Commission on Worship, the Conference Secretary and the District 
Superintendents shall provide for all the details of the Memorial Service. The 
Conference Secretary shall serve as the chairman of this group. 

F There shall be a Committee on Daily Minutes elected each year to examine and 
edit the daily minutes of the annual conference.* 

G There shall be a Committee on Appeals appointed quadrennially, composed of 
five members whose duties shall be to hear appeals from the decisions of the 
several District Boards of Church Location and Building, or any other questions 
that may properly come before it. 

H. There shall be a Committee on Annual Conference Rules, which shall provide 
to the Annual Conference a document of Rules of Order and Procedure, and the 
policies, standing rules and structure that the Annual Conference from time to 
time may adopt. This document shall be presented at the opening of the first 
session of each annual conference.* 

I. There shall be a Committee on Resolutions and Reference which shall 

perform the duties assigned to it in the section of these rules titled "Motions, 
Amendments, Reports and Resolutions." 

J. There shall be a North Carolina Annual Conference Board of Institutions, Inc. 
which shall have the responsibility, upon consultation with the Annual Conference 
Commission on Higher Education and Campus Ministry, the Annual Conference 



241 



Commission on Health and Human Services, or the North Carolina United 
Methodist Commission on Outdoor and Camping Ministries, Inc., as appropriate, 
for nominating and electing forty (40) percent of all voting members of each of 
the boards of trustees of the affiliated institutions with the exception of the 
Methodist Retirement Homes, Inc. The North Carolina Annual Conference shall 
elect the trustees of the North Carolina Annual Conference Board of Institutions, 
Inc. in staggered four-year terms. (See 1992 Journal, page 320.) No person 
may serve on more than one board of trustees of the institutions for which the 
Annual Conference elects trustees. 

The Annual Conference structure is diagramed on p. 342 in the 2008 Journal. 

A Structure Review Team: This team will annually evaluate the conference 
structure for effectiveness and faithfulness to the vision and mission of the 
Annual Conference, working in concert with the Connectional Table to propose 
changes in structure as needed. Ten persons, one from each Team of Ministry 
plus the Bishop, Executive Director of Conference Connectional Ministries, and 
the Conference Lay Leader, plus two at-large members, will be elected by the 
conference. 

B. NC Annual Conference Connectional Table 

1. The Connectional Table will provide a forum for the understanding, casting 
forth, and implementation for the vision of the conference. It shall be the 
place where ministry and money come to the same table to coordinate the 
mission, ministries, and resources of the conference. It will be the link 
among the Teams of Ministry (Leadership Team, Christian Formation 
Team, Outreach Ministry Team and Stewardship Team) and the agency to 
which they report. It will provide the primary place in the conference for joint 
planning and priority setting. It shall report and be amenable to the Annual 
Conference Session. 

Its essential functions are to: 

a. discern and articulate the vision of the conference 

b. provide stewardship of the mission, ministry, and resources of the 
conference and provide fiscal responsibility and establish policies and 
procedures to carry out the mission 

c. collaborate with the Council on Finance and Administration by: 

1) communicating the vision and priorities of the conference in 
preparation of budgets for apportioned funds that come 
before the Annual Conference Session 

2) setting allocations of budget requests within totals as

James L. Bryan, Annual Conference Secretary 

*A note on usage in this document: 

The terms "North Carolina Annual Conference," "Annual Conference," or "Conference" 
[note the capital letters] refer to the North Carolina Annual Conference of the United 
Methodist Church. These terms refer to an organization. 

The term "annual conference" [in lower-case letters] refers to the yearly assembly, 
usually occupying four days in June, at which the North Carolina Annual Conference 
gathers to worship God and conduct business. This term [not capitalized] refers to 
this yearly, multi-day convention. 

The term "session" refers to one meeting of the North Carolina Annual Conference 
occurring on any part of one of those days or to a meeting on a single day for a special 
or called session. For example, the minutes often refer to the "morning session of the 
first day of the annual conference" or to the "evening session of Friday of annual 
conference." This document avoids the common practice of using the phrase "the 
annual conference session" to refer to the whole week of meetings in June. This 
document's usage would designate that whole series of meetings as "the 2006 annual 
conference," or "the 2009 annual conference," for example

casting forth, and implementation for the vision of the conference. It 
shall be the place where ministry and money come to the same table to coordinate the 
mission, ministries, and resources of the conference. 

It will be the link among the Teams of Ministry (Leadership Team, Christian 
Formation Team, Outreach Ministry Team and Stewardship Team) and the agency to 
which they report. It will provide the primary place in the conference for joint planning 
and priority setting. It shall report and be amenable to the Annual Conference Session.

COMMUNICATIONS CIRCLE 

Eight years ago as the North Carolina Conference Connectional Table was created, 
the communications committee of the Annual Conference was re-created to do a new 
thing. The Communications Circle was to meet, vision the work of communications in 
the conference, encourage the communications efforts of the conference with an eye to 
the future, and strategize ways to use technology to meet the communication needs of 
the 21 st church. Through the Advocate and various new means of technology, we feel we 
have done well the telling of good news. 

Bill Norton, LeeAnne Thornton, Linda Smith, and lay person, Julie Brown, have 
brought the North Carolina Christian Advocate to a place of sustainability and visibility in 
print to subscribers across the conference and on line from the Conference Web site. At 
this time we have more paying subscribers and advertising revenue than previously. 
Finding more subscribers and advertisers is the ongoing challenge. The Advocate 
alongside News Briefs and the on-line sharing of prayer requests, death and birth 
notices allows us to be participants in a new way of connection. 

Because Igniting Ministries is now part of the permanent budget of the General 
Church, match funding will continue to be available for the conference and for local 
churches who apply. 

Power point presentations and training videos are written and produced for the 
Annual Conference by the Communications staff along with members of the Conference 
Communications Circle. 

The Communications Circle of the North Carolina Annual Conference celebrates 
the ongoing relationship with the UM Church in Liberia in establishing a 
communications center in Monrovia, Liberia. This communications center will serve as 
a vital information center for the country that has endured years of civil war, poverty, and 
HIV/Aids. 

It has been a joy and a blessing to convene the Communications Circle of the N C 
Annual Conference and to work with Bill, LeeAnne, Linda, and Laura Bailey, Media 
Center and Archives and History. I look forward to seeing what God will continue to do in 
multiplying the goodness of the work of the people called Methodist in North Carolina. 

Lib Campbell, Convener 



Archives and History, Commission on 

The spring meetings of the Commission and the Historical Society were held in 
Raleigh, NC at the Jenkins Memorial United Methodist Church April 14, 2007. 
According to a report in the North Carolina Conference Christian Advocate, the church 
was organized in 1878 with the name Brooklyn Methodist Church. In 1906, the church 
was relocated to its present site and was named Jenkins Memorial Methodist Church 
in honor of the Rev. John W. Jenkins, the founder and first superintendent of the 
Methodist Orphanage. More recently, it is noted that for the first two years, the church 
was named Wills Hill Methodist Church. 

We were truly inspired by the history of this congregation shared by Mr. I. Lynn James, 
Director of the United Methodist Foundation, Inc. and a church member. The Rev. Linda 
E. Harris is the pastor. We were heartily greeted by members of the congregation and a 
delightful meal was provided at the church before we began the Commission meeting 



345 



in the afternoon. We reviewed the work of our Commission and discussed the 
information received from Dr. Linda Addo about a revised edition of To Be Faithful to Our 
Heritage, the history of the Black Methodist congregations in North Carolina prior to 
1968. 

The SEJ Historical Society meeting for this year was held in conjunction with The 
United Methodist Church - Sixth Historical Convocation, Celebrating the Charles Wesley 
Tercentenary, at the National 4 - H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland, 
July 20-22, 2007. The sponsoring groups were: General Commission on Archives and 
History, The Historical Society of The United Methodist Church, The Charles Wesley 
Society, The SEJ Historical Society, World Methodist Council and Wesley Theological 
Seminary. There were four in attendance from the North Carolina Conference- Vivian 
Mitchell, John Mitchell, Becky Warren and Arthur Warren. 

We are glad to report additions to our collections, furnishings and equipment for the 
Archives. Fifty-seven Methodist history books were received from the Ohio Wesleyan/ 
Ohio Conference to add to our holdings. A stand and digital camera for the copying of 
documents and books in digital form is in place along with new shelving for our 
collection of conference journals. The Saddlebags, the Newsletter of the Society and 
Commission is published bi-annually through the efforts of our conference staff, Laura 
Bailey and Linda Smith. 

The fall meeting of the Commission was held at Murfreesboro United Methodist 
Church on September 21, 2007 in Murfreesboro, NO The business of the Commission 
was conducted with mention of the Training Workshops for local church historians 
being offered at the District Leadership Workshops as needed and also participation in 
the Workshops offered at Lake Junaluska in October 2007. Six individuals were in 
attendance at the Workshops in October. We will offer scholarships for registration to the 
Fall Training at Lake Junaluska, which is scheduled every other year, as available. 
Beverley Pierpoint shared about work on local church pictorial histories and completion 
of A Journey Back: Historic Oak Grove, Northhampton County, NO She updated and 
discussed how we might include Junior Historians in the work of historical preservation 
to get youth interested and involved. 

The spring 2008 meeting location is John Wesley UMC, Fayetteville. Trinity UMC, 
Durham will be the location for the fall 2008 meeting. We will continue to offer grants to 
Rehoboth and Whitakers Chapel for maintenance of these historic properties and 
contribute to the Heritage Center Endowment at Lake Junaluska, the Archives of the 
Southeastern Jurisdiction, as funds are available. 

The meeting of the NC Conference Historical Society was held, September 22, 
2007 at Murfreesboro UMC. President Rev. Para Drake led the meeting. A program was 
presented by Mrs. Jayne Hill Wolfskill on the history of Murfreesboro UMC from the 
research of Mrs. Doris M. Ferguson and Rev. W Allen Wentz, Jr., pastor from 1971-1976. 
The church celebrated its 200" 1 Anniversary on October 24, 2004, based on Journal 
records of the travels of Bishop Francis Asbury in the area between 1801 and 1805. 
Geraldine Harris, church historian, prepared a display of local history for our guests to 
enjoy. The day was part of the local celebration of the 10 th Anniversary of the Brady C. 
Jefcoat Museum of Americana located in the Old Murfreesboro High School Building. A 
tour of the Murfreesboro Historic District was awaiting the Society participants and was 
led by Dick Hammel. 

We invite the local churches of the NC Conference to continue the ministry of history 
by preparing faithful disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ and to enable healthy 
congregations for the future. 

W Arthur Warren, Jr., Chairperson

EPISCOPAL CIRCLE 

The Episcopal Circle has accomplished numerous areas of the mission/ vision of 
the North Carolina Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church- Healthy 
Congregations and effective leaders in every place making disciples of Jesus Christ for 
the transformation of the world, - through Ministerial Relations, Annual Conference 
program, Nominations, congregational development, Christian unity and Interreligious 
Concerns, Monitoring and accountability, Cabinet Representatives, and Episcopacy 
Committee. 

The Episcopal Circle has been pressing our teams on to reach out to the mission, 
"to listen to, prayerfully consider, and offer insight to the Bishop, and to receive and 
implement tasks of his special interests." The Episcopal Committee had evaluated the 
leadership of the Bishop and met Mrs. Gwinn at the residency of the Bishop to share 
and discuss any concerns that she might have and the mission and ministry of Jesus 
Christ at the North Carolina Annual Conference. The Members of the Episcopal Circle 
are thankful and grateful to God for Bishop Gwinn and his leadership at our Annual 
Conference. God has been great and we are looking forward to seeing greater things in 
God through the Bishop and the cabinet. 

Kong Namkung, Chairperson 



Christian and Interfaith Unity Council 

Through our common faith, we are members together in the Body of Christ. This is 
a basic theological understanding of Christian unity. With other Christian communions, 
United Methodists declare the essential oneness of the Church in Christ — which finds 
expression in scripture, the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion, hymnody, 
liturgies, and the historic creeds; and is experienced in joint ventures of worship, 
ministry and various forms of ecumenical cooperation and dialogue. Responsibilities of 
the Christian & Interfaith Unity Council are listed in fl 641 of the 2004 Book of Discipline, 
and our work is done in connectional relationship with the General Commission on 
Christian Unity & Interreligious Concerns. 

During 2007, four Council members were able to attend the 2007 National 
Workshop on Christian Unity in Washington, D.C., an ecumenical dialogue annually 
hosted by the Roman Catholic Church, with ten participating communions. In recent 
years, ecumenical ties between the UMC/Episcopal Church (USA) and UMC/ELCA 
(Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) have been strengthened through 
establishment of Interim Eucharistic Agreements. Studies for both relationships are 
available. Make Us One With Christ (available through Cokesbury), and Confessing Our 
Faith Together (available through the General Commission website www.gccuic.org) 
explore Episcopal/UM and ELCA/UM relationships respectively. The Council also 
rejoices in the con-celebration of Eucharist at our 2007 Annual Conference in Greenville, 
as The Rt. Rev. Clifton Daniel III, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina 
presided at 

Christ's table alongside Bishop Al Gwinn, at our bishop's invitation. 

We also encourage the study of documents related to our beliefs as United 
Methodists in the ongoing ecumenical process, in particular This Holy Mystery and By 
Water and the Spirit, which deepen the understanding of our UM beliefs regarding Holy 
Communion and Baptism. In 2008, the Council has planned a workshop which will 



347 



explore a recent study entitled In One Body Through the Cross: The Princeton Proposal 
for Christian Unity, calling for a deeper grounding of Christian unity in "faith and order." 

We continue to be represented in the ongoing Episcopal/UM dialogue, led through 
the years by Rev. Dr. F. Belton Joyner and Dr. Pat Page, and in the House of Delegates of 
the NC Council of Churches. 

Through our ministry funded by the Conference, we seek "to advance and 
strengthen ecumenical and interreligious commitments that are essential to the Gospel 
of Jesus Christ, by forming and inspiring the clergy and lay leadership within the Annual 
Conference." 

Randy Innes, Chairperson 

Congregational Development, Commission on 

The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church 2004 states that the "mission 
of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ," and that "local churches provide the 
most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs." The North Carolina 
Conference has taken seriously this charge and over the past decade has provided 
leadership to the general church as we sustained growth in professions of faith, new 
membership, and worship attendance. 

It is the function of the Commission on Congregational Development, and the 
associated Office of Congregational Development, to aid congregations and their lay 
and clergy leaders in creating strong and effective churches. Annually, new churches, 
and older churches of all sizes, are assisted with vision and mission planning, staff 
development, lay and clergy leadership development, building committee organization, 
and evangelism and outreach instruction. Each year about one hundred churches are 
assisted, most of them small membership in size, and this was again the case in 2007. 
In 2007, the Office of Congregational Development co-sponsored with Windsor United 
Methodist Church located in the Wlmington District an event for small membership 
churches called Fan the Flame. This event will be supported again in 2008. 

The Office of Congregational Development continues to provide demographic 
research for local churches, districts and conference agencies. Data for these studies 
are supplied by Missionlnsite, Inc. and the Office of Research for the General Board of 
Global Ministries at no cost to conference users. 

In forty years, sixty-five attempts have been made to plant new churches within the 
bounds of the North Carolina Conference. These churches have been started in city 
settings, growing suburban communities, and rural communities. Membership in these 
new churches includes persons who are affluent, middle class, and poor, Anglo, 
Hispanic-Latino, African-American, Korean, Native American, and African. More than 
72% of these attempts have been successful. In 2008, several more new churches will 
be planted following appointments to be announced by Bishop Gwinn at the conclusion 
of annual conference. 

The Ten Dollar Club is administered by the Office of Congregational Development. 
The Club's loyal members continue to provide funding to underwrite grants to new 
churches for land purchase and first building construction.

District Superintendents, Report of 
Burlington District 

The district has sought to be attentive to the Reign of God in this part of the NC 
Conference. Eighteen persons attended the first annual Peace Conference at Lake 
Junaluska. Eleven persons (laity and clergy) are being trained and supervised by Plow 
Point Ministries to become Congregational Health Specialists to work with 
congregations in strategic planning and addressing systemic conflict. District clergy 
meetings have informed us around new Pastoral Care Initiatives, led by Susan Dunlap 
of Duke Divinity School, and the awareness of special needs of victims of domestic 
abuse-violence. The Christian Education intern coordinated an event for adult youth 
workers on "Mentoring Youth toward Christ" with Professor Fred Edie of Duke Divinity 
School. The formerly closed Christ Church in Graham is now being occupied by The 
Mosaic Center, an ecumenical ministry to serve the needs of children and families, 
including after-school care, ESL classes, and computer labs. The more visible location 
doubled the number of families served. The confirmation retreat at Camp Chestnut 
Ridge served approximately 90 youth. Two congregations with Duke Endowment 
assistance have new additions: Prospect UMC -fellowship hall and Evergreen UMC — 
food pantry facility. Two locations (Cedar Grove UMC and Camp Chestnut Ridge) 
received grants from the Valparaiso Project for environmental and stewardship 
initiatives. One new full-time charge alignment has been established — Chestnut Ridge 
and Clover Garden. Saxapahaw UMC is becoming full-time after being a student 
appointment. Two congregations celebrated historic anniversaries: Hillsborough UMC 
(200 years) and Amity UMC (50 years). Fifty-one of the 56 charges paid 1 00% of the 
connectional, mission apportionment, for a 96.6% district pay-out. The Christmas 
offering supported the Angel Tree project for inmate families and the construction of the 
Peace Chapel at Orange County Correction Center. Scholarships were given by the 
Board of Laity to three persons who are preparing for the ministry. To paraphrase the 
words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., "We are not what we can be... but neither are we 
what we have been!" 

William (Bill) H. Gattis, District Superintendent 

Durham District 

The Durham District has experienced growth in attendance and a resetting of 
missional goals in the past year. Those exciting developments promise blessings for 
years to come. 

Durham District churches have been addressing their spiritual vitality by examining their 
worship services and considering what new offerings to make. We have given new 
intentionality to developing the lifelong practices of spiritual formation that define and 
develop a Christian into maturity. We are about the work of mission and hospitality. 

In the past year, the Durham District has offered a mission trip to the Mississippi 
Annual Conference to continue Katrina recovery. Union Grove Church and the 
Rougemont Charge, along with other district congregations, were awarded a 
community-wide recognition for their work in feeding the homeless on Highway 15/501. 
Several area United Methodist churches worked together to build a Habitat for Humanity 
House, one in a series of United Methodist efforts. The Brookland/Brooksdale Charge 
continues its work to open a transitional home for people recovering from domestic 
violence. Resurrection Church has taken the lead in a community healing ministry 
called "Butterfly House". 

Shepherd's House, a church made up largely of expatriate Africans, continues to 
lead the way as an example of a missional congregation that, in turn, is in mission to 
us. Durham Hispanic Ministries and Cristo Vive are re-forming and has a new task 



349 



force to head it. Lakewood Church, which is to close, will be the base for a new 
outreach ministry in its neighborhood. The Duke Divinity School has given leadership to 
a variety of continuing education events in our district and continues to provide 
leadership for our churches through student-pastors who are enrolled there and 
through its various programs designed to strengthen local churches. 

Mt. Zion Church celebrated the completion of its new fellowship hall and classroom 
addition, already in use as part of its childcare ministries. Banks Church built a new 
parsonage. Reconciliation Church celebrated its tenth anniversary and will soon build 
its own permanent facility. Several other churches have begun building projects, 
including Union Chapel following its August 2007 fire which destroyed its 138 year old 
sanctuary. Yet, Union Chapel continues to serve and has become a beacon of hope for 
its community, a Christian church where ministry continues during their rebuilding. 

I want to thank all those who have welcomed me to join in these ministries and 
rejoice with them that the Lord has strengthened us to serve together. It is a joy to be 
among the great people of the Durham District and I am thankful for this opportunity to 
serve. 

H. Gray Southern, District Superintendent 

Elizabeth City District 

The 2007-2008 conference year has been a fruitful year for the Elizabeth City 
District. As congregations begin to explore what it means to be a healthy congregation 
and as churches seek to model themselves after the Acts 2 New Testament church, 
sharper visions and abundant mission begin to emerge. 

What does that vision and mission look like? We celebrate that close to two 
percent of all members are persons who this year made or renewed professions of 
faith. We celebrate district mission trips to Mississippi and Louisiana to help victims of 
Katrina. We celebrate a district youth retreat with over three hundred youth participating. 
We celebrate construction and renovation of several local church facilities. We celebrate 
that all but two charges paid connectional mission apportionments in full. We celebrate 
a ten percent growth in the number of racial minority members in our churches. We 
celebrate a strong lay involvement, including 134 lay speakers. We celebrate the 
relocation of the district office to new facilities in downtown Elizabeth City. We celebrate 
the development of a mobile food bank ministry within the district. We celebrate a 
district clergy retreat with a theme of "stewardship." We celebrate the rich heritage of 
congregations that formed in the earliest days of American Methodism. God has 
provided; we celebrate! 

During the course of the year, district superintendent Won Namkoong began a 
period of formation leave. The district laity and clergy have shown hospitality and 
support to the acting district superintendent. For that, I am grateful. 

F. Belton Joyner, Acting District Superintendent 

Fayetteville District 

For the Fayetteville District 2007 was a year of celebration and fruitful ministry. 
Seeds of faith sown years ago are producing fruit in a number of congregations: 

• Solid Rock UMC was chartered on 3/25/07 with 330 members and 7 baptisms; 

• Cornerstone UMC observed the 10 th anniversary since her charter; 

• Cornerstone pastor Kong Namkung launched a service for Korean speaking 
persons on Easter Sunday, the 10 th anniversary of the church; 

• Rev. Chad Pullins was appointed to start a new congregation in South 
Fayetteville. 



350 



Across the District churches have addressed facility needs: 

•/ Hay St. and Haymount moved into newly constructed fellowship and 

classroom buildings; 
S John Wesley UMC voted to sell their parsonage and St. Andrews UMC 

approved the purchase of a new parsonage; 
•/ Steeples were erected at Andrews Chapel and Harry Hosier churches; 
S Hope Mills burned the note on their activity building. 
Ministry and mission are flourishing in the District: 

> Two mission teams rebuilt homes damaged in Hurricane 
Katrina in Mississippi; 

> A Parish Nurse is helping our clergy become healthier, 
achieving balance and better spiritual and physical health, 
and congregations benefit from the ministry with workshops 
and programs tailored to their needs; 

> Churches that have embraced the Acts 2 model for ministry 
are practicing radical hospitality, passionate worship, 
intentional spiritual formation and risk-taking ministry for the 
transformation of the world; 

> Solid Rock was designated one of the Thriving Rural 
Congregations in the NCC and they open the church to 
visiting ministry teams on 5 th Sundays for worship and 
workshops; 

> Parker UMC is led in worship on 5 th Sundays by the youth; 

> At Harry Hosier a confirmation class was added to the already 
full slate of opportunities for faith development; 

> Cornerstone Church began a ministry to Hispanic persons in 
Hoke Co., extending the love of Christ through activities and 
services for the whole family, and Solid Rock's ministry of 
outreach called Martha's Place provided food for 425 weekly, 
as well as, clothing, school supplies, and other assistance. 

The congregations of the Fayetteville District continue to grow in the likeness of 
Jesus Christ whose grace enlivens and sustains us. God is good! 

Carol Goehring, District Superintendent 

Goldsboro District 

The Goldsboro District continues its mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for 
the transformation of the world. At the district setup meeting at Pine Forest UMC, the 
emphasis was keeping "the main thing the main thing." Since our central focus should be 
making disciples of Christ, all other activities, tasks, and events should contribute to that 
goal. 

The district parsonage was unoccupied from July to October, 2007 while repairs 
were completed. In August Bishop Gwinn came to St. Paul UMC in Goldsboro for the 
installation service of the new superintendent, challenging both laity and clergy to a life 
of excellence. 

The support groups for the clergy, already in place, were revived and modified as 
part of the emphasis on "Healthy Pastors and Healthy Congregations." This theme was 
reinforced at the charge conferences held throughout the district in the fall of 2007. 
Pastors were encouraged to begin consistent programs of health care, not only by 
participating in these support groups, but also through the PEP (Pastor's Exercise 
Program). Through a Duke Endowment grant on pastoral wellness, clergy may receive 
as much as $250 toward costs at a health club or other exercise facility. The district also 



351 



continues a weight-loss program for pastors as a continuation of the parish nurse grant 
from the Duke Endowment. The superintendent held discussions with principals from 
the Duke Endowment Rural Church Initiative to sculpt their program of pastoral health 
so that it will fit seamlessly over the pastoral support groups once Duke's plans are 
completed next year. A continuing education event for pastors in the spring of 2008 
further initiated them into the movement toward pastoral health. Blood pressure, 
cholesterol and diabetes screenings were also conducted at several district meetings. 

District pastors' meetings have been re-formatted so that they focus on inspiration 
rather than information. Three of the year's four meetings were in the form of a worship 
service followed by a common meal. Time for institutional announcements and appeals 
was restricted, and there was a much stronger emphasis on the spirit rather than the 
institution. These pastors' meetings have served to increase collegiality among the 
pastors, and also allowed us to build spiritual bonds with one another. At one pastors' 
meeting over 9,000 meals and $3,000 were given to "Stop Hunger Now." Greater 
Heights UMC in Clayton continues its unique ministry to that community. Throughout our 
visits to all of the churches in the district, we have found the Church of Jesus Christ to be 
thriving as it provides opportunities for worship, mission and study. 

The churches of the Goldsboro District continue to excel in their efforts to convert 
people for Christ. Through proclamation of the Word and celebration of the Holy 
Sacraments, through mission teams and church-based athletic programs for youth, 
through an active district senior adult program, and through countless other efforts, the 
people called Methodists in the Goldsboro District seek to fit people for the kingdom of 
God that the world may be transformed. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to be the 
servant of the servants of God in the Goldsboro District. 

Chuck Cook, District Superintendent 

Greenville District 

Jesus said, "I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in 
them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:5) 

United Methodist Christians in the Greenville District have been faithful and 
fruitful. On any given weekend, the churches of this district will average 6,402 persons 
in worship. In the last statistical year, 212 persons made a first-time confession of faith 
in Jesus Christ. We have lived out our faith in discipleship as we have generously given 
our prayers, presence, gifts, and service. As a district we have partnered to support 
several ministries. 

In an effort to create a home away from home for young adults, District Advance 
Funds have undergirded ministry to college students through The Wesley Foundation at 
East Carolina University. Numerous churches have hosted The Wesley Singers and 
supported them with love offerings to supplement their spring mission trip. 
Contributions of school supplies and monetary Christmas offerings have extended our 
Latino-Hispanic ministry (Unidos por Crista) in Grimesland. Several congregations 
and clergy of the Greenville District purchased and packaged thousands of meals for 
Operation Sharehouse, who distribute the nutritional meals to people in need world- 
wide. One such effort brought together one hundred and twelve people (ranging in age 
from 4-90 years old) from among eight small membership churches of Martin County 
(Holly Springs, Robersonville, Jamesville, Siloam, Stokes, Vernon, Bethel, and 
Wlliamston: First.) This group collected $5,000 in Lenten offerings to purchase and 
package 25,000 meals for Operation Sharehouse. Similar events will occur later in the 
year. 

We have reached out to the hungry, the marginalized, the imprisoned, and 
those seeking a relationship with Christ and His Church. Jarvis Memorial UMC in 
Greenville sponsored "One Day with God Camp", which created an opportunity for 

352 



prisoners to visit, play, and worship with their children. Salem UMC in Simpson, NC 
entered into Phase I of an expansion project, which will create a community playground 
and walking trail. First UMC in Washington has plans to renovate existing educational 
space and building new facilities to accommodate a growing worshipping community. 

With gratitude to God for the gift of Jesus Christ, the laity and clergy of the 
Greenville District will seek to grow in grace and bear much fruit. 

Beth Hood, District Superintendent 

New Bern District 

God has certainly blessed the churches of the New Bern District as we have sought 
to do the mission and ministry of God's church. This Annual Conference year we have 
focused on becoming "healthy congregations." A wonderful kick-off event was held at 
First United Methodist Church in Morehead City on January 27, 2008. Some churches 
began the healthy congregations assessment in the fall with many more participating 
during Lent. As I have visited throughout the District, read newsletters, and listened to 
our pastors, there is clear evidence that there are indeed healthy churches in the New 
Bern District. 

Our churches faithfully support the work of the United Methodist Church throughout 
the world as well as engage in vital ministries in their own communities. This was most 
evident at Garber United Methodist Church in New Bern during their "Faith in Action 
Sunday." Morning worship was suspended in order for over 400 persons to go and 
serve others in tangible ways in the fall and in the spring. New Song United Methodist 
Church embraced the 40-day program named "Outflow" in the fall of 2007. They learned 
how to unselfishly express God's love in real ways with a concluding event at the New 
Bern Civic Center. 

A new sanctuary was approved for Northwoods United Methodist Church in 
Jacksonville. An impressive ramp was installed at Merrimon United Methodist Church. 
A significant renovation was planned at Beech Grove United Methodist Church. 

Our pastors had a fruitful workday at Camp Don Lee on January 14 th . We held an 
exciting Lay Rally on March 9 th at the Garber Ministry Center. These are but a few of the 
ways in which God manifested Himself in our life and work. As we seek to "make 
disciples for the transformation of the world" we know that God will continue to bless our 
prayers and efforts in the new year. 

Dennis Goodwin, District Superintendent 



Raleigh District 

Throughout the Raleigh District, congregations have embraced the mission 
statement of the North Carolina Conference to "make disciples of Jesus Christ for the 
transformation of the world." In many exciting and Spirit-filled ways we see 
congregations being transformed through their offering of radical hospitality, passionate 
worship, intentional spiritual formation, and risk-taking mission and ministry. As 
individuals and congregations are being transformed, the communities in which the 
they are located are catching a glimpse of the light of Christ which dispels the darkness. 

In the past year, four gifted servants of the Church, two clergy and two lay-persons, 
have been identified as BriDGE partners. They have begun their initial training in 
preparation for work in local congregations. In the months to come the BriDGE Team 
will be available to churches to assist in strategic visioning, vision implementation, and 
processing and healing conflict. 

Again this year, a number of congregations participated in a year-long stewardship 
training and implementation program which was offered in the district. There was a 



353 



year-long event intended to assist churches in identifying and inviting people into 
ministry. The Raleigh District, along with the Academy for Leadership Excellence, 
sponsored a Day Apart for clergy and laity with Don Cousins. 

Two new congregations were launched in the Raleigh District, All Saints and 
Wakefield United Methodist Churches. Both are showing significant strength in worship 
attendance as well as in mission and ministry. Local churches in the district and 
beyond have offered financial and spiritual support. There is reason for great 
celebration and thanks for what God is doing in these two new congregations. 

Knightdale United Methodist Church has begun construction of the first phase of 
their relocation. When construction is completed they will have significantly more space, 
a more accessible location, and lots of room to grow! Agape Korean United Methodist 
Church is anticipating the sale of their current church location and the purchase of an 
existing church facility in Cary. This will give them much needed space in this fast- 
growing congregation. 

In so many places in the Raleigh District lives are being changed more and more 
into the likeness of Jesus Christ. To God be our praise and thanks! 

Ned Hill, District Superintendent 

Rockingham District 

"See The Possibilities, Live The Promise," despite very challenging economic 
times the laity, pastors, and local churches of The Rockingham District strive to live into 
the above vision statement. The district has been daily under girded by the strong and 
vital prayers of "The Rockingham District Intercessory Prayer Team." This team has 
invited pastors and local churches too share in a deeper prayer life by hosting the first 
district prayer conference. The fruit of this prayer ministry can be seen in many areas of 
our work together they include but are not limited to the following: 

Rockingham District Partners In Ministry- local churches in each sub-district 
partnering together to support, encourage, resource, and work side by side to ensure 
that every local church has the opportunity to be in ministry and mission. The partners in 
ministry teams are working in three key areas. Y.E.S. - Youth Empowered To Succeed 
Leadership Program. R.O.A. R. -Rockingham District Outreach and Recovery, this team 
will work on substandard housing within the bounds of the district. Finally, the partners 
in ministry will work to establish The Rockingham District Data Base Center of 
resources and services. 

Local Churches that are involved in significant building programs are: Beauty Spot, 
New Zion, and New Hope. Sandy Plains has just completed a state of the art day care 
facility. 

The laity, pastors, and churches of the district have not allowed the challenges to 
cause them to lose the focus of reaching people with the gospel. We continue to be 
faithful to the Wesleyan call to social witness through a number of district mission 
projects that have been completed or are under way that include: Habitat homes in 
Scotland, and Richmond Counties, a new Asbury Home in Pembroke. The district has 
completed renovations on a home in Laurinburg under the leadership of ROAR, and is 
now ready to receive applications for other substandard houses to work on. The district 
is in the process of finalizing plans for a second trip to Mississippi. 

The people called Methodist in The Rockingham District believe that God will supply 
every need as we attempt to meet the challenges and opportunities that come to us. 
The possibilities are unlimited, and we believe our best years are not behind us they are 
in front of us.

Rocky Mount District 

The seventy-eight churches of the Rocky Mount District showed growth in 
membership, mission outreach, evangelism and giving. This district was one of two in 
the Annual Conference to meet its mission and outreach giving in full with every church 
fulfilling their apportionments by 100%. The Warrenton Charge was divided with Wesley 
Memorial and Macon now designated as station appointments. 

The Rocky Mount District enjoys a multi-cultural expression both in its clergy and 
membership in the churches. La Estrells Respandeciente, a Latino faith community, 
provides English as second language classes, tutoring for middle-schoolers, and 
children's programming as well as a growing attendance at lively worship services. 
Two charges, Norlina and Northampton, have assisted their pastors to return to Korea 
with their families to renew their visas enabling them to return and continue their 
ministry here in this district. 

The District Trustees, utilizing funds from closed churches, assisted the Winstead 
UMC with a grant secured by deed of trust in the amount of $225,000 to help them 
purchase a new, fourteen-acre site on Airport Rd. Extension in Wilson. Services have 
been held on the new site with plans for re-locating within the next five years. 

The District has had building projects at Pleasant Grove (Northampton Co.) with a 
new fellowship hall; Bailey, with the completion of its renovation of facilities; Zion 
(Northampton Co.), with a wheel chair elevator; Warrenton: Wesley Memorial, with 
construction of a new entrance way; West Nash, with a new parsonage; Pleasant Hill, 
with renovation of facilities; First Church, Rocky Mount, with the purchase of a building in 
downtown Rocky Mount for use in youth ministries, scouting and Christian education; 
Sandy Cross, with the purchase and renovation of a house for use as a new parsonage; 
Littleton, with the purchase of a new parsonage; and, extensive renovation of the 
facilities at La Estrella Resplandeciente. Through a grant from the Duke Endowment 
and one from the District, with the help of volunteer labor the building at Stanhope was 
completely renovated. 

In January, the District Superintendent, Dr. Simpson, took his sabbatical. For two 
months he served as country director for the Kingdom of Cambodia for the General 
Board of Global Ministries. A work team from the district went to Chon Buri, Thailand, to 
visit the First United Methodist Church of Thailand, sponsored by the district, and then to 
Sri Lanka, to work with a Christian church in that nation. 

The Rocky Mount District pastors voted to engage in a program of wellness and 
health designed and implemented by one of the pastors. This will involve emphasis on 
healthy diet and regular exercise. 

Bill Simpson, District Superintendent 

Sanford District 

The Conference year, 2007-2008 has been a year of transition for the Sanford 
District. Following the extended illness and untimely death of Superintendent Jerry 
Lowry, Bishop Gwinn appointed Dr. Milton Gilbert as the interim District Superintendent. 
During this year, Listening Sessions were held throughout the four counties that make 
up the District. Initial Leadership Groups were formed for pastoral support and 
increased effectiveness. Pastors' Meetings were coupled with times of continuing 
education to strengthen the pastors' skill sets. Seminars were held for the training of 
the Pastor-Parish Committees, the role of Lay Leaders, and efforts have begun to 
develop a far reaching program to strengthen cooperative ministry, particularly in Youth 
Ministry in the rural parts of the District. A successful Lay Rally was held, and the Board 
of Laity continues to take a strong leadership role through the District. The United 



355 



Methodist Women continue to be a growing, strong unit with outstanding leadership. 
The United Methodist Men continue to be an active, strong presence in each of the 
congregations. 

During this year, congregations at McQueen's Chapel have completed and are 
enjoying a new fellowship hall. Trinity Mission in Sanford is close to chartering as a 
congregation. The Hispanic Ministry in the Sanford District has taken a quantum leap by 
the employment of Ishmael Perez as the District Coordinator. New parsonages are in 
the planning for several congregations and other churches are looking at new creative 
means of mission and ministry. 

During this year, the Sanford District has continued to send mission work teams to 
the Gulf Coast and other places of great need. The Meshach's Carpenters from 
Goldston United Methodist Church have made a great statement of Christian love as 
they have begun numerous building projects throughout the state and nation. Clothing 
Closets and Food Banks have been outstanding examples of congregational care by 
many churches in this District. The Board of Laity is planning a summer music concert 
for the support of the MERCI Center, and a continued program of Spiritual Development 
is being implemented by that Board. 

As the District prepares to welcome a new District Superintendent, work has been 
done on the District parsonage and yard. The District now stands ready to receive its 
new Superintendent with a mind to be the Church that God has called this District to 
become, as it seeks to be in ministry with all peoples of our four county area of 
Chatham, Lee, Moore, and Montgomery. 



Milton H. Gilbert, District Superintendent 

Wilmington District 

During the conference year 2007-8 the Wilmington District continued to live into the 
vision of the annual conference: "Healthy congregations and effective leaders in every 
place making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world." We believe 
every congregation is called to share the old, old story of Jesus and His love because 
we believe that story has the power to transform the world. 

Closer Walk United Methodist Church, a new church start in Leland, was begun 
with the appointment of the Reverend Terry Leigh Buckner in June 2007. They have 
outgrown two worship spaces and are now meeting at Leland Middle School. Our 2007 
District Christmas offering was dedicated to the ministry of Closer Walk and raised 
approximately $10,000. They have already begun giving back to the community in many 
ways. As an example of their generosity they contributed almost $7,000 (the second 
highest total of any church in the district) to the Methodist Home for Children fundraiser 
called 1K for 1 Kid. 

1K for 1Kid was a district effort to support the ministry of Methodist Home for 
Children. It takes approximately $1,000 annually to sponsor each child and family under 
the care of MHC so we challenged each of our churches to raise $1,000 for MHC. 
Spearheaded by our district United Methodist Men, the ministry arose out of the vision of 
the Reverend Linda Taylor and one of her laypersons, Bill Parr and Al Everett, district 
UMM President. This mission project culminated with a celebration on November 4 at 
Pine Valley. We raised over $50,000 for the ministry of Methodist Home for Children. In 
September our district hosted an Epicurean Evening for MHC at the Wilmington Hilton 
downtown. Local chefs and restaurants offered various foods to sample and Jim Kenny, 
from Wrightsville UMC, spoke movingly about his family's experience in adopting 



356 



children. We were pleased to welcome Bishop Gwinn and his cabinet to this very 
special event which raised over $30,000 for the ministry of MHC. 

Also in September, our annual Camp Meeting was held with the Reverend Bill 
Bouknight as our preacher. Laity and clergy alike were inspired by the good preaching, 
dynamic music and enjoyable fellowship. 

In November we rejoiced when Leon West, a layperson from Oleander Church, 
was selected to receive a North Carolina Outstanding Volunteer Medallion, an award 
that honors 20 volunteers from various counties around the state. Leon was honored for 
his work with WARM (Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministry), a ministry which helps with 
home repairs across our district. 

In November and December we participated in the Get on The Bus 4 campaign to 
collect school supplies, medicine, books, clothing and dry goods for our ministry to the 
people of Liberia. This effort included 270 volunteers who prepared 65,000 meals 
through Stop Hunger Now and was coordinated by the Reverend Bill Haddock, missions 
chairperson. 

In January we gathered for our Healthy Congregations event at Pine Valley with over 
400 in attendance. Our task force, chaired by Dr. Jerome Smith, continues to meet and 
offer help to churches and pastors seeking to be healthy congregations and effective 
leaders. . 

Dr. Tom Morris, Lay Leader at Wrightsville and a nationally known motivational 
speaker, led us in our District Day Apart in February at Wrightsville Beach. We were 
joined by colleagues from around the annual conference as Dr. Morris led us in 
discussing "Leadership and Life Success." 

Our missions chairperson, the Reverend Bill Haddock, led us in our district 
missions celebration event entitled "Leap Into Missions" (held the weekend of Leap 
Day, 2008). We welcomed missioners from around the world that weekend as they 
spread out across our district to tell their stories of how God was at work in their lives 
and ministries. 

The Fan the Flame small membership church revitalization event, under the 
leadership of the Reverend Tim Reaves, was held in the Wlmington District and hosted 
by Windsor UMC and the Bladen Charge on April 18-20, 2008. There were 19 churches 
and about 65 people who registered from across the conference. The weekend 
emphasized ministry in the small church covering areas pertaining 
to Worship, VBS, Sunday School, Evangelism, Missions, Healing and Wholeness, 
Children and Youth Ministry and Dynamics of the Small Membership Church. This 
year's results are unknown but at the 2007 event one lay person made a commitment to 
Christ and three of the churches involved experienced growth of fifty percent or 
more following the event. 

Thanks to the sacrificial giving of our churches and the faithful stewardship of 
Woody Wells, our former DS, we once again paid 100% of our apportionments (for the 
third year in a row). 

In closing, to paraphrase the Gospel of John, "...there are also many other things 
which the followers of Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the 
world itself could not contain the books that would be written" (John 21:25). 



Tim Russell, District Superintendent

Monitoring and Accountability Ministry Team 

As the Monitoring and Accountability Ministry Team we will continue to offer a 
ministry of advocacy for inclusiveness in the North Carolina Annual conference. As a 
diverse people of God who bring special gifts and evidence of God's grace to the unity 
of the church and society, we are called to be faithful to the call of Jesus Christ's 
ministry to all persons"(par. 138, The Book of Discipline, 2000). We will continue to 
guide and encourage the NCC to realize the full and equal participation of all God's 
children, regardless of ethnicity, gender, physical limitations, or age in the life and 
leadership of Christ's Church. 

During Annual Conference 2007 we again offered the following ministries to 
encourage inclusiveness in the life of our North Carolina Conference. 

1) We monitored the conference plenary sessions and worship experiences to 
record participation rates. The results were published daily in The Saddlebags 
as feedback. The pattern of participation revealed the following (i.e. leadership 
from the podium; comments from the floor): 77% white men, 10% white 
women, 10% racial ethnic men, and 3% racial ethnic women. Of the worship 
services monitored, 62% of the worship leaders to include musicians were 
white men, 28% were white women, 7% were racial ethnic men, and 3% were 
racial ethnic women). 

2) We monitored the conference Cross-racial appointments and found that as of 
July 1,2007 there were 35 appointments of racial ethnic clergy in the NCC, and 
16 cross-racial appointments (African American pastors and, or associates in 
white churches 5; White Pastors in African American churches 0; Native 
American pastors in White churches 7; Korean American pastors in White 
churches 3; and White pastors in Native American churches 1). 

3) We monitored the NCC District Superintendency and found as of 07/02/07 the 
following rates of representation: 67% white men and 17% white women; 16% 
racial ethnic men. Overall rating: 98% white and 2% racial ethnic. 

4) Our delegates for General Conference are: two racial ethnic clergy (2) and two 
racial ethnic alternate who are clergy (2). 

Our delegates for SEJ are: three racial ethnic lay persons (3) and one (1) racial 
ethnic alternate.. 

5) Our twelve districts went through in-depth sensitivity training conducted by the 
General Commission on Religion and Race, in clusters of four districts per 
setting. The attendance was 66% with the exception of one district, which did 
not participate. The evaluation was 77% favorable overall. 

The Monitoring and Accountability Team will continue to refine our monitoring and 
accountability procedures as we enter our seventh year of reporting. Our desire is to 
broaden our scope to include more in-depth monitoring as well advocates for our 
districts and conference functions. 

We will continue to familiarize the NCC with the usefulness of monitoring for 
inclusiveness as we work to keep before the world and ourselves the church's 
commitment to inclusiveness as a faithful reflection of Jesus' ministry to all people. 

William E. Cummings, Chairperson 

MISSION DEVELOPMENT CIRCLE 

The Mission Development Circle has spent time this year studying the present structure 
and mission of the work assigned. As part of the restructuring of the Circles of ministry, 
each of the areas are being looked at with regard to its fit with the Bishop's seven 
Pathways. In the coming year, alignment with these initiatives will be a priority of this 
reorganization process. The "zero-based" budget has provided new challenges that 
have been met positively with a desire to do more vision-driven ministry. This new 



358 



concept has allowed us to be far more creative in doing mission ministry as we live out 
our vision. 

The circle continues to operate following the same mission we began with at the 
beginning of the quadrennian - "To inspire courage, cultivate generosity, and to ignite 
service for Christ mission in the world." During the past year, we have attempted to carry 
out the ministries we have chosen to devote ourselves to in the furtherance of the 
kingdom and for God's people. The mission circle believes in the structure we have 
adopted as a conference and has worked hard in adjusting budgets to match the 
ministries areas we have chosen to lend our focus to. 

During the past year, we have sought to live out the scripture in seeking to live out 
the mandate "to serve the least, lost and last" and make disciples of Jesus Christ. We 
have sought to take servant leadership in new places where God's people will meet him 
face to face. The ZOE project is one example of this in serving children in Africa that that 
would not otherwise be served. Our Methodist Home for Children has served children 
with great needs for many years. The Methodist Retirement Homes provide a place for 
our older persons to experience a loving and caring environment that respects their 
many years of dedication and service. Both the Methodist Home for Children and The 
Methodist Retirement Home have taken seriously their ministries and are stronger as a 
result. Our Disaster response teams have been very active in addressing needs in 
North Carolina and outside North Carolina. We continue to work with hurricane 
response in Louisiana and Mississippi as well as other places. These new challenge 
have not only created new and difficult work for us but has brought out the best in all of 
us in The United Methodist church in North Carolina. Our Mission Team not only serves 
persons but provides a foundation for calling and equipping persons for ministry in the 
future through the many opportunities to serve in mission locally, nationally and 
internationally. 

In the past year, we have been able to reach more persons in prison and go into 
more prisons with Disciple Bible Study than ever before. There is a greater excitement at 
the possibility of serving in a greater capacity in our prisons through our Criminal Justice 
and Mercy and Evangelism programs. 

We continue to live into our unique Multicultural environment in North Carolina. We 
have just developed and adopted a new Comprehensive Plan of Inclusiveness that will 
undoubtedly make us as a conference stronger as time goes on. Our United Methodist 
Men continue to recruit and develop new leadership, commitment and vision along with 
action in our conference. Golden Cross has been redefined and continues to address 
emergency medical needs. Please continue to partner with us as we attempt to serve 
Christ by meeting individual and local needs as well as global needs around the world.

Church and Society, Commission on 

The Commission on Church and Society, adjusting to staff changes but no less 
eager to please our Lord Jesus Christ, has devoted the past year to continuing its 
transition from being a resolution clearinghouse for individual passions to being a 
conference agency committed to educating our congregations on the Social Principles 
in general and helping our people see how those principles give us a coherent 
understanding of the world which can help us interpret how we can best respond as 
ambassadors for Christ and agents of God's grace and justice in the most effective way 
possible. Our goal is to help our conference understand why the social ills of everyday 
life are "our business" and worthy of our attention. In so doing, we hope to be obedient 
to God as expressed in Jeremiah 9:2-324: "Thus says the Lord: 'Let not the wise man 
glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in 
his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that 
I am the Lord who practice steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth; for in 
these things I delight, says the Lord." 

Last fall, in our first major meeting of the conference year, the commission did two 
important things. The first was theological, to ask ourselves whether we were to spend our 
energy encouraging the Church to practice peace and social justice as a model for the 
world without attempting to change the world itself; or were we to challenge the world, as 
well as ourselves, to social justice and righteousness? The question was no dry exercise 
in Bible study because we intended to let the answer determine our strategies and priorities 
as a commission. We decided as a commission that both scripture and our own Wesleyan 
legacy called us to hold the world as accountable as we hold ourselves. We will continue 
in the new quadrennium to challenge the "powers and principalities" as well as our own 
clergy and laity to practice "love, justice, and righteousness in the earth." 

Our second important task was to set our priorities for the year so that we can 
concentrate on a few important areas and do them well. After much discussion, the 
commission decided that our priorities for the year would be war and peace, universal 
health care, promoting the Social Principles, promoting "Green" building, and supporting 
UNICEF. 

The resolutions we are submitting to the conference this year reflect our priorities. We 
believe they are critical issues the conference needs to confront and which require taking 
a stand. Please read them carefully. Discuss their pros and cons forcefully. But don't 
ignore them or duck responsibility for taking action. 

As an action item, we recommend to the congregations of the North Carolina 
Conference that we resume our practice of encouraging our children to solicit funds for 
UNICEF while they are "trick-or-treating" at Halloween. The little UNICEF coin boxes many 
Methodists carried as children can still do a great deal of good for a worthy, globally- 
focused relief effort for the children of the world. It is time to "bring the boxes back." It will be 
good for our children. It will be good for our world. 

Our biggest project for the year, reflecting one of our biggest priorities, is to offer a 
series of three workshops on the Social Principles this fall, right now set for Oct. 30-Nov. 1 
for two weekday and one weekend workshop in three different locations around the 
conference, quite likely the Triangle area, Greenville, and Wlmington. We strongly encourage 
each delegate here to make sure that at least one representative of their church attends 
one of these workshops and then shares what is learned with the rest of the congregation. 

In other activities this year, we will present a Crum Award at this conference to one of 
our churches with a strong prophetic ministry. 

We made small grants to support worthy projects done by local churches and remain 
open to other requests within the conference. 
368 



We approved a resolution supporting justice for the workers at Smithfield. 

We are trying to establish a "Creation Care Team" in the conference to promote 
ecological stewardship. 

And we sent delegations to the "Living Faith, Seeking Justice" event in Fort Worth, 
TX., the Peace with Justice Conference at Lake Junaluska, and to Advocacy Days in 
Washington, D.C. 

The commission is still interested in serving our conference by working with other 
conference agencies, districts, or local churches to assist them when they have a need for 
social advocacy. Contact us and let us put our skills to work on your behalf. Promoting 
peace and social justice is not just the work of one commission; it is the responsibility of 
all of us. 

We commit ourselves to "practice steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the 
earth," because, like the Lord we serve, in these things we should all delight. 

Ken Ripley, Chairperson 



Disaster Recovery Ministries 

The MERCI CENTER, in Goldsboro, is the Disaster Response and Missions center 
for the North Carolina Conference. 

Our records show that in 2007, 3,604 volunteers worked through MERCI to help 
their neighbors. That is in a year without a disaster within our conference bounds. That 
equates to over $300,000 in volunteer assistance alone given to folks in our area. That 
number indicates an ownership of the center, not only by our United Methodist Men and 
Women, but volunteers from many other states as well. 

Over 56 churches in the NC Conference have been able to make a difference to 
their own communities through the assistance provided by the MERCI Neighbor to 
Neighbor program. 

Add to this Footprints Youth Camp, where over 600 youth have made a difference to 
39 families in the past three summers. 

Wth your help, MERCI was able to "make a difference" in the relief efforts of 
UMCOR. Thousands of school kits, blankets, health kits, and medical supplies have 
been sent from MERCI to many of the devastated nations around the world. 

In the past two years, MERCI has also taken on an additional program with The 
Duke Endowment called REACH. This program provides training and assistance to 
local rural churches in Disaster preparedness and response. The Duke Endowment 
provides a generator and funding for the church for actions before, during and after a 
disaster. 

MERCI, which in French means "Thank you," has a lot to be thankful for. We are 
thankful for people who saw a need for our conference to reach out to our neighbors, the 
folks right here in our own backyard. We are thankful for the support of The Duke 
Endowment and their efforts to help alleviate substandard housing in eastern North 
Carolina. We are thankful for the volunteers who have come from all over the United 
States to help share the love of Christ, to be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus right here 
in North Carolina. MERCI is thankful for every single family who has allowed us to make 
a difference in their lives. 

We need your help on a continuing basis for MERCI to continue to make a 
difference in the lives of the people in eastern North Carolina, in the lives of people in 
the local churches, and in the lives of people around the world. 



369 



As the financial situation of MERCI became known across the conference in the 
latter months of 2007, wonderful folks responded to the need and so far we are meeting 
the need for operating funds for another year. Should our area be hit with a natural or 
man-made disaster, we are here. We believe that monies to assist victims will be 
forthcoming and that is why we must always be here and be ready. 
Currently we have five staff members, each with a specific responsibility. Yet each 
member stops to assist the others with the unscheduled tasks that routinely arise. 
In February, we were informed by the state of North Carolina that we would receive a 
grant of $75,000 to perform urgent repair to home owners in the Wayne county area. We 
will receive and schedule teams of volunteers to complete this work. 
While this report is about MERCI, it really can't be so! We must state with great pride that 
the men and women of the North Carolina Conference are a very caring group of people. 
We constantly receive phone calls and emails from churches and individuals asking us, 
"Where can I go to be in mission?" We are constantly receiving, storing and shipping 
materials for our conference mission's office and the various great works being 
accomplished through the programs managed there. 

MERCI needs about $2.00 per conference member to maintain readiness around the 
year. When you give this through the advance special number, S00136, it does not raise 
your local church apportionments. Thanks for your continued support to your Disaster 
Response and missions support center at MERCI. 

Jim Huskins, Program Director 

Evangelism, Commission on 

The mission of the Commission on Evangelism is to assist the churches and pastors 
of the North Carolina Conference to witness to the saving love of Jesus Christ for all 
persons. To that end, the commitment of the Commission is to equip clergy and laity for the 
work of Evangelism. During the past year, the Commission has sought to fulfill that 
commitment by providing scholarship and seed money to individuals, churches, and districts 
to assist with a variety of training opportunities and programs in evangelism, and to provide 
education and resources to increase the knowledge and abilities of our people. 

The Sixth Annual Academy of Christian Wtness (ACW) For Clergy was held April 8- 
10, 2008, at the Bergland Retreat Center, with 34 participants registered and 14 
presenters. The goal of ACW is to train pastors to become more effective evangelists 
and equippers of witness-minded laity. This year's workshops included witnessing to 
post-moderns, worship as evangelism, pastoral leadership as evangelism, the 
personal spirituality of the pastor-evangelist, evangelism and local mission, and 
personal faith-sharing. Great presenters who have practiced evangelism in effective 
ways shared, including our own Bishop Al Gwinn. All participants received quality 
evangelism and leadership resources. The Academy is funded by the NC Commission 
on Evangelism and is made available to 36 clergy (three from each district) nominated 
by their district superintendents. We are excited to announce the First Annual Academy of 
Christian Witness For Laity to be held this Fall on Oct. 16-18, 2008. This will train laity to 
be intentional about Evangelism in their church and community. 

The Commission also funded seed money for the Wlmington District Camp 
Meeting Revival. We hope to help other districts plan and implement events in 2009 that 
center on Evangelism. Also, a web page should be placed on the conference website 
sometime this year as a resource for churches needing help with Evangelism and 
Revival. 

The North Carolina Conference remains one of the few in The United Methodist 
Church to report net membership gains. We hope to help continue this trend and 
combine it with Spiritual growth and renewal

Hispanic Ministries Team 

*For the sake of space and word count available for this report, H/L will be used in 
place of the words: Hispanic/Latino. 

One of the biggest concerns confronting our nation is that of immigration reform. 
There is a great spirit of division among the citizens of our country surrounding the 
current situation. Unfortunately, that division also exists among some of the members of 
our church. We recognize that much of this can be relieved if we can separate the truths 
of immigration issues from the myths that permeate lies and misconceptions that divide 
us. This makes it necessary to bring this difficult reality into the dialogue of the church 
and we must find the correct and Christian way to respond with the love and actions 
necessary to make a difference. 

Please consider this quote in a report from John D. Dasarda, director of the Keenan 
Institute, and James H. Johnson Jr., director of the institute's Investment Strategies 
Center: "Immigrants from Latin America, authorized and unauthorized, are dramatically 
changing North Carolina's demographic and economic landscape." According to their 
research there are now Hispanic/Latinos in every one of the state's 100 counties and 
that they contribute to all sectors of the economy. This is a population that currently 
contributes more than $9 billion to the state's economy through purchases, taxes and 
labor. The prediction is that if migration trends continue, it could impact the economy of 
our state by an increase to $18 billion by the year 2009. 

The most recent U.S. Population Projections: 2005 - 2050 released by the Pew 
Research Center on February 11, 2008 reflect some strong realities that must be 
recognized and responded to by the church if we are to move into the future in a way that 
is relevant and significant enough for our presence to be of any use in today's world of 
such diversity of cultures, ethnicities, and languages. The report states that "in the year 
2050, nearly one in five Americans will be an immigrant, compared with one in eight now 
(12% in 2005)." Please note the changes in the following projections from Pew 
Research Center:

Encouraging an inclusive church that is intentionally making a space for Hispanic/ 
Latino presence continues to be a priority in the North Carolina Conference. Our 
Comprehensive Plan of Inclusiveness: E.M.B.R.A.C.E. (Empowering Ministry to Bridge, 
Reach out and Affirm Cultural Esteem) continues to be an effective strategy for 
developing and maintaining ministry throughout the conference. 

The E.M.B.R.A.C.E. plan continues to be the strategy used by our conference to 
begin and maintain our H/L ministries. The first steps for any church in the North 
Carolina Conference responding to a call to reach out with ministry to the H/L 
community should be to establish connection with the conference office/director of H/L 
ministry. Working together in the connection is a priority in H/L ministry and offers many 
benefits to the local church, the conference, and to the H/L ministry itself. There are 
many resources, training opportunities, worship and fellowship opportunities 
happening through the conference office, and we would like these to be a connectional 
space granted to H/L leadership. This also helps us avoid a sense of isolation, 
separation or even the discouragement that can come to leadership that doesn't have 
colleagues with whom they can share the concerns, joys, stories and celebrations of 
their ministry journey.

At this time, we have three EMBRACE districts: Durham, New Bern, and Sanford. 
Each one has a coordinator and a committee. As of July 2008, Burlington will also 
become an EMBRACE District with its own coordinator. 

We would encourage a visit to the H/L Ministries website, www.nccembrace.org 
where you will find stories, useful links, a calendar of all activities and events across the 
conference, news, testimonies, photo albums, etc. An important page on this website is 
"COMPREHENSIVE PLAN" where you can download the EMBRACE CPI and the Ministry 
Starter Checklist, which we request of any new H/L ministry. 

The Office of H/L Ministries along with the H/L Ministries Team and pastors have 
worked very hard to maintain unity among the leadership and the ministries, in spite of 
how far apart most of the ministries are located. This has become a very strong and 
cohesive group of leaders that continue to develop and grow spiritually, theologically, 
academically, and otherwise. All lay missioners are encouraged to explore their call to 
serve, and they often acknowledged a call and desire to go into full-time ministry and 
enter into the candidacy process. This begins with their first step of reading "Cristianos 
Como Ministros" (Christians as Ministers) but there is, however, a shortage of Spanish- 
speaking mentors that can work with our candidates in their native tongue. We 
recognize that this problem is consistent in conferences across the nation. There is a 
shortage of H/L ordained ministries and we see this as a serious concern for the entire 
denomination. 

We continue to encourage H/L members with a call to serve as lay persons to 
participate in the Modulo I and Modulo II that is offered by GBOD, as this has helped 
strengthen some of our ministries by equipping lay missioners who can support their 
pastor and fellow lay members with service to the church, such as leading Bible 
Studies, teaching Sunday School, leading worship, etc. 

There are continued conversations at conference and national levels that are 
exploring ways that The United Methodist Church can equip more leaders, and 
specifically develop a strong force of H/L local pastors and ordained ministers. We are 
excited about the Hispanic House Studies at Duke Divinity School and we thankful for 
the relationship to the director, Dr. Edgardo Colon-Emeric, and for the possibilities that 
come out of this space at Duke Divinity School to further equip our leadership. 

Throughout the year, we have had many events across the conference. Four very 
significant ones have been: 

-Renewal Retreat, "RENUEVAME," that was held at Trinity Center in Salter Path, NC 
in November, 2007. During their time together, almost 40 of our pastors and leadership 
came together to develop a Practical Vision for 2008 -2011. This vision has been given 
to Bishop Gwinn and the Cabinet. 

-As of January 2008, the Office of H/L Ministries joined the Office of Missions in their 
efforts to develop JFON: Justice For Our Neighbors. This partnership is also working in 
partnership with: El Pueblo (Raleigh), Lutheran Family Services, the North Carolina 
Council of Churches, and the North Carolina Justice Council. This constitutes a strong 
connection between church and society that has joined together in voice and strength to 
address some of the very urgent needs of refugees and immigrants in North Carolina. 
We view this partnership as a significant development in the timeline of H/L Ministries in 
the NC Conference. 

-INCUBADOR Retreat in February, led by Rev. Eliseo Mejia of the Kentucky 
Conference. During this retreat our leadership explored Healthy Churches and 
developed their own Ministry Action Plans. This retreat (Incubator: L3)) was presented in 
Spanish and in the H/L context for ministry. 

-EMBRACE Forum II was our second workshop with Bishop Gwinn, the Cabinet and 
Extended Cabinet, as well as other key conference leaders. It was facilitated by Rev. 
Josefina (Cookie) Santiago in partnership with Rev. Francisco Canas, National 
Coordinator for the National Plan for Hispanic/Latino Ministries on April 8, 2008. This 



372 



one-day workshop was the second of three that the conference committed to in 2006 in 
support of developing an understanding of the EMBRACE Plan with a connection to key 
leadership that would facilitate clear lines of communication and a strong partnership 
as we work in this area of ministry that carries a significant message to the church and 
to the world in regard to the Seven Vision Pathways to the future. 

Josefina Santiago, Director of Hispanic/Latino Ministires 

Missions Team 

The human suffering and needs are great throughout the world, and the United 
Methodists in the North Carolina Conference continue to respond generously to the many 
needs with our prayers, presence, gifts and service. The NCC Missions Team and Board 
of Missions, Inc. utilize our connectional dollars to generate, respond to, and sustain 
multiple missional needs in our community and throughout the world with the expectation 
that lives will be positively transformed. 

Coupled with funds from the connectional budget, The Duke Endowment provided an 
additional $20,000 for the Town and Country Grants. The total of these two sources is used 
to encourage and promote missions ministry in or connected to the NCC and to empower 
and support local congregations. A few of the many such ministries follow: The funds 
support the Church and Community Worker who serves 16 churches in the Rockingham 
Native-American Cooperative Ministries. The Team helps fund a Refugee and Immigration 
Ministry to aid families in their resettlement process as well as to provide training, education 
and action steps to aid in the development of this ministry. They support NC United Methodist 
Volunteers in Mission, promote Mission Studies, and help support missionaries. Some of 
the recipients who receive the largest grants are Robeson County Church and Community 
Center, Society of St. Andrew, Liberia Ministries, UMVIM and MERCI. Globally, in conjunction 
with the Western NCC, we use the funds to provide monetary support to Project AGAPE in 
Armenia, a country still suffering the devastation of war, earthquake, and past Soviet 
exploitation. We help sustain a hospital and provide their medical supplies, goods, food, 
books, agricultural tools, and buildings that provide a safe haven for the children. Shana 
Harrison, our NC-supported GBGM missionary in Chile, receives programming money 
from us for an adult sheltered workshop, providing spiritual and physical care in a Christian 
context for mentally and physically disabled adults. With the generosity of our Conference, 
our Liberian UM brothers and sisters receive funds for medical care in clinics and a 
hospital and they receive containers of textbooks for their schools. Our money goes to 
support ministries in Peru centered on teaching, feeding, spiritual development, and building 
the Kingdom in the Wesleyan Way. 

The Board of Missions, Inc. (BOMI) is the legal entity which the Missions Team 
administers. Formed 53 years ago, the BOMI oversees the nearly five million dollars 
available for loans to churches to help with a variety of building needs. Loans are available 
at an interest rate one point below prime and presently loans exist in all 12 districts of our 
conference. BOMI also funds two general contractors who work only with our conference 
churches to build new churches and to restore or renovate existing churches. BOMI provides 
much of the materials needed as well as expertise and volunteer labor in order to reduce 
the cost of these building programs. Churches do pay a small percentage of the total 
building cost, however. 

This year, we started a partnership with Stop Hunger Now whose worldwide 
headquarters are located at Fairmont UMC, Raleigh. In 2007, SHN collaborated with the 
NCC, The Duke Endowment, and MERCI to open an Operation Sharehouse at MERCI in 
Goldsboro, empowering rural congregations to address world hunger. In the past six 
months, dozens of congregations, many of them United Methodist, have hosted and 
participated in "packaging events" to assemble highly-nutritious meals for distribution in 
disaster relief and school feeding programs worldwide. This year, SHN collaborated with 



373 



the NCC and UMCOR to ship a forty-foot container of 287,000 meals to the earthquake-torn 
regions of Peru. In the first two years, the Raleigh Operation Sharehouse has packaged 
over five million meals, and has done so with many United Methodist congregations 
participating. 

The 12 districts throughout the Conference have been actively working to relieve the 
suffering of their fellow human beings in their communities, state, and throughout the 
world. In addition to the extraordinary amount of mission work in our own communities, 
church teams have traveled to countries such as Bolivia, Africa, Jamaica, Chile, Peru, 
Liberia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Armenia, Haiti, Mexico, the Bahamas, and many more. We 
have not forgotten the needs of the people along the Mississippi Gulf Coast as they strive 
to rebuild their lives and their communities following Hurricane Katrina. Church teams 
continue to work alongside the Mississippians. The NC Conference has had teams in 
Mississippi almost continuously since October 2005. 

Jo Elaine Harris, Chairperson 

Multicultural Ministries 

In 2007, the Multicultural Ministries Team approved a total of $51,200 through the 
Comprehensive Plan of Inclusiveness Grants (CPI) as seed money to support 28 
ministries in the Durham, Fayetteville, New Bern, Raleigh, Rockingham, Rocky Mount 
and Wilmington Districts, as well as some initiatives at the conference level. Another 
$32,024 was granted from The Duke Endowment funds. Those projects covered a 
variety of ministries such as leadership training, children's educational programs, youth 
tobacco prevention use, food pantries, "mothers morning out" programs, older adults 
ministries, music and arts, innovative worship, immigration clinics and evangelistic 
outreach efforts among others. All of these ministries have inclusiveness 
comprehension visions and practices and all have to fullfill the key requirement of a 
process of evaluation at the end of the grant cycle (March/September). For more 
information about the Comprehensive Plan of Inclusiveness in the North Carolina 
Conference, or about applying for a CPI grant, contact Dr. Lawrence Johnson at 1-800- 
849-4433, ext. 255 or ljohnson@nccumc.org. 

Some highlights of this past year have been: Convocation on the Black Church 
"Creating Disciple-Making Faith Communities" on September 28-29, 2007 with an 
attendance of approximately 200 people, both clergy and laity. The guest preacher was 
Bishop Ernest Lyght, of the West Virginia Conference and Dr. Rodney Smothers of the 
Baltimore-Washington Conference brought the keynote address. 

The Southeastern Jurisdiction Diversity Convocation (Transforming Lives by 
Embracing Diversity) was held at Lake Junalaska in December. The NC Conference 
had the largest number of participants, with 52 attending, including Bishop Gwinn and 
members of the Cabinet. Several members of our conference provided outstanding 
leadership for this event. On the last morning of this convocation, time was given for 
each individual conference to meet and make decisions and plans of "next steps." The 
NCC meeting was led by LaNella Smith and the group developed an extensive list of 
responses and a commitment to make diversity a genuine priority with intentional 
actions that will teach the church to embrace all people. The first immediate step was to 
be a follow-up meeting on February 19 held at Hollands UMC in Raleigh. During the 
meeting, it was obvious that all agreed on the urgent need to stop activities that 
generate support with a predominant presence of persons of color, and that we begin to 
find ways to educate the church and open up opportunities for genuine understanding 
and love of one another and a desire to be truly inclusive. The Multicultural Ministries 
Team continues to look for ways to be intentional about generating respect and 
appreciation for all, as well as an understanding that to be one in Christ, we must see 
each other as equals. This was a serious conversation, full of passion and 
commitment.

Several of our clergy women attended the Clergy-Women of Color Conference 
in Los Angeles, CAin January 2008. The Stewardship Seminar for African-American 
Churches was led by Rev. Melvin Amerson of the Texas Methodist Foundation, with 
participation of approximately 130 church leaders from across the Conference. 
Strengthening the Black Church also organized an event at Lake Junalaska, "Ebony 
Exploration for Ministry" for youth, grades 10-12, in April. This was in conjunction with the 
Western North Carolina Conference, the North Georgia Conference, and the Holston 
Conference. Thirteen young persons from our conference, all contemplating a call to 
ministry attended this event. 

At the initiative of our committee, Irene Brownlee, Director of the Leadership 
Academy and Steve Compton, Director of Congregational Development were invited to 
have a dialogue about the curricula of the leadership program and how the leadership 
of the different ethnic constituencies can share their experience and wisdom within a 
multicultural perspective among other issues. Our main concern is that in the process 
of preparing pastors for new church starts, we should begin to move beyond racial and 
cultural categorization of churches, and that pastors of new churches be specifically 
trained and challenged to start churches that are multi-cultural and multi-ethnic. Training 
that is presented in the relevant context is necessary for these leaders to be effective in 
multi-cultural/ethnic circumstances. 

Native American Ministries has been in a process of self-evaluation and the 
development of a strategic plan for the new quadrennium is now in place. Clergy have 
been gathering on a regular basis to evaluate their goals regarding leadership 
development. Bishop Gwinn met with Native American leadership, both clergy and laity, 
and ground has been broken for a group home in Pembroke (SEMAR). This will be the 
first in the nation. They had training led by UMVIM and went as a work team to 
Mississippi last year. Plans are in place to do the same this year. There are also plans 
to send two young adult leaders to a Native American national convocation. 

The Hispanic/Latino Ministries Committee has organized several events during 
this past year, which you may read about in their report. 

Rosanna Panizo, Chairperson 

Peru Covenant, Task Force on 

Year 2007/2008 continues to demonstrate that during the past 19 years, the Covenant 
between the North Carolina Conference and the Methodist Church of Peru is an excellent 
example of mutuality-in-mission. 

This Covenant does not involve us in administrative and financial issues, but in the 
human relationship of mutuality, connecting the churches through the love of Christ, 
where Latin American Christians can contribute to the church of the Northern 
Hemisphere and thereby enrich this relationship (Bishop Aldo Etchegoyen - Chair of the 
Methodist Churches in Latin America). 

One of the key participants in this vibrant ministry is Southern Pines UMC. The 
church's work in Peru has included three components: work-teams, conducting free 
medical clinics, and leading a Sunday afternoon children's activity. Over the last several 
years, Southern Pines UMC has worked at a small Methodist Church at Jose Olaya, a 
shantytown about 45 minutes north of Lima. Wth the help of a United Methodist 
Volunteer in Mission team from the Missouri Annual Conference and grants from the 
North Carolina Annual Conference, land was purchased and a Christian Education 
building was constructed. 

In the fullest spirit of the Covenant, through the NC Rainbow Covenant Advance 
giving, other churches joined this ministry and birthed a free medical clinic. Last year, 



375 



the clinic treated over 400 people. Health kits were provided and medicines were 
donated. Dr. Astrid Diaz provided dental care. 

The Rev. Sherry Driscoll, a member of Southern Pines UMC, stated, "In 2008, we 
had 17 team members, our largest group. I think all of us were amazed at the size of the 
sanctuary! So much work had been completed since we had been there last March - the 
walls and ceiling of the second floor, the addition of the roof, tiling of the sanctuary, and 
installation of windows. Additionally, the free medical clinic was even more successful 
than previous years. Dr. Matt Harmody estimates that 700 patients were seen in 3 days." 

"It was amazing how much work was completed in the sanctuary on Saturday - the 
walls and columns were given their final coats of paint and the installation of the tile, 
stained glass windows, and lights. There was much activity going on at once!" 

"On Sunday, March 2, 2008 Bishop Jorge Bravo consecrated the sanctuary. It was a 
very special celebration - with music, clapping, picture taking, and many tears of joy 
shed. Many persons took part in the service. There was singing, scripture readings, and 
prayers. Gracie Feese, from the Missouri Annual Conference, who had been part of the 
group that built the first wooden sanctuary, spoke of her experience at Jose Olaya and 
beautifully sang "Amazing Grace." The North Carolina team sang "Santo, Santo, Santo" 
and "Kum Ba Yah." The team presented a plaque commemorating the consecration 
along with checks totaling $2100 to go towards furnishings for the building. We all felt a 
sense of completion." 

In a true partnership of ministry, in individual teams, like Southern Pines, and 
through the extended connection of the Rainbow Covenant, we have worked together to 
build a church for the people of Jose Olaya, which will stand as a testimony to the glory 
of God for many years. A church has literally risen out of the sand where the people of 
this shantytown can learn of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. As we have all been truly 
blessed by this experience, in the voice of community and connection, we loudly 
proclaim: "Gracias a Dios!" 

The Raleigh District entered into this Mutuality in Mission when North Raleigh UMC 
and White Plains UMC organized teams. In July/August 2007, they worked together with 
brothers and sisters at Jose Olaya, Chancay, Huaral and Peralvillo UMCs. 
Another key facet of the Peru Covenant ministry has been the strong commitment to 
training, teaching, and seminary relationship. During the summer of 2007, a group of 
Duke Divinity School students journeyed to Peru. Dr. Kristin Herzog, widow of Professor 
Frederick Herzog who helped to initiate the exchange with Peru in 1987, continues to be 
a strong supporter of the Theological Training Program in Huancayo. The Rev. Tiffney 
Marley, Director of Black Church Studies in the Divinity School, and Prof. Susan 
Eastman, Professor of New Testament also participated. This will continue in 2008. In 
the summer of 2007, two Divinity School students did a ten-week internship in 
Huancayo, 12000 feet high in the Peruvian Andes, working with two seminaries, one 
Methodist and one ecumenical. 

On August 15, Peru suffered a tragic earthquake that destroyed 80% of the city of Pisco. 
Over 500 people died. The NC Conference quickly responded to the crisis. In 
partnership with Stop Hunger Now, the international food ministry, we shipped 287,000 
ready-to-eat meals with a value of $57,000. Much remains to be done, so if you would 
like to help, please contact the Office of Missions or the Peru Covenant Team. 
In this mutual journey, these two Methodist bodies, the North Carolina Conference and 
the Iglesia Metodista del Peru have greatly benefited in affirming their global Methodist 
heritage, have breathed in the richness of life with the other, and have known God in 
connected expressions of worship and faith. In this, they have learned that they know 
more of Christ in covenant than they ever did apart. As the Reverend Sherry Driscoll, co- 
leader of the Southern Pines UMC Peru Mission Team, said so well, "One of the most 
beautiful moments happened when we shared the sacrament of Holy Communion with 
the Comas 13 congregation. Even though we spoke different languages, were from 



376 



different cultures and economic groups, and lived on different continents, we were all 
one through Christ Jesus, our Lord! Thanks be to God!" 

Luis F. Reinoso, Chairperson 

United Methodist Women 

"Come to the Potter for Healing" 

The theme for 2007 was "Come to the Potter for Healing" and the focus scripture 
was II Corinthians 4:7: "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the 
surpassing greatness may be of God and not we ourselves." With blessings from 
above and the generous giving of the local women in our conference, we were able to 
send $475,813 to Women's Division for mission giving. This money will enable us to 
help women, children and youth to become better educated and to reach out to others 
all around the world. We were also instrumental in helping Methodist Home for Children 
raise over $160,000. 

The North Carolina Conference Executive Committee met in January at First UMC in 
Rocky Mount, in March at Brooks Howell in Asheville and in September at Westover UMC 
in Raleigh. The Executive Committee made plans to sponsor programs and events to 
meet the needs of North Carolina United Methodist Women, especially women and 
children. We are a supportive community, working to accomplish our goals as we re- 
evaluate our programs to established new goals in order to help strengthen our 
organization. 

At the 39 and Under Event held at Centenary UMC in Smithfield on February 23-24, 
workshop leader, Rev. Lisa Yebuah, inspired approximately 150 young women to 
remember that miracles of Jesus have an impact on the lives of those that believe that 
there is still healing in the Potter's House. The "Little Women" Teen Circle of Four Oaks 
UMC shared their story of mission and fellowship. Workshops were held on spiritual, 
physical, financial and organizational healing. Courtney Jones and Paulette Kim of the 
Women's Division were co-instructors on a special workshop for teen membership. 

On March 10, our conference officers, district officers and potential leaders from 
each district attended a "ReKindle the Gift" workshop on leadership skills. The event 
was held at Pinehurst UMC and was led by Julia Tulloch, staff member of Women's 
Division. 

The Conference Racial Justice Workshop was held at First UMC in Rocky Mount on 
April 28. Carol Barton and Elmira Nazombe, Women's Division staff, led the workshop 
on immigration. Approximately 200 ladies were in attendance. 

The Spiritual Enrichment Retreat, May 18-19 was held at Jarvis Memorial UMC in 
Greenville. The women were asked to be "Resurrection Women" through our 
understanding of and commitment to God's mission to women, children and youth. 
Nancy Bearden Hudson and Joyce Winston, officers of the SEJ Core Planning Group, 
led the retreat. 

In June, the conference officers and School of Christian Mission dean, assistant 
dean and study leaders attended the South Atlantic Regional School of Christian 
Mission at Virginian Wesleyan College in Norfolk, VA. Ann Davis, our conference 
secretary was the dean of the school. Our study leaders were introduced to our mission 
studies — Music and Mission, Globalization: Its Impact on Our Lives and Israel and 
Palestine. Our Conference School of Christian Mission was held at Methodist University 
in Fayetteville on July 25-28. On Friday evening, Joan Purcell, Director of MATCH, 
presented an overview of the MATCH program. Individuals donated various gifts, along 
with monetary donations for programming events.

National Seminar was held August 11-16 at Scarritt-Bennett Center in Nashville, TN. 
The theme was "Turn this World Upside Down." Melba McCallum attended as the North 
Carolina Conference Representative. 

The Mother Child Retreat was held at Camp Don Lee on September 16-18. The camp 
was filled to capacity with 230 mothers and their children in attendance. Madoline 
Murphy led this event. 

Our conference annual meeting was held on October 13 at Methodist University in 
Fayetteville. There were 468 persons in attendance. The 2008 budget was approved 
and the 2008 conference officers were installed. Officers for 2008-2009 are Ann Davis, 
president; Sandra Croom, secretary; JoAnn Barbour, coordinator for Social Action; Dora 
Ann Maness, chairperson of Nominations and Doris Wade, LaNella Smith and Kendall 
McDougald, committee members. Eight recipients were awarded $8,000.00 in 
scholarships. 

Conference DO-IT-DAY was held November 10 at Westminster UMC in Kinston. The 
district officers were trained in job responsibilities. The November 17-19 Leadership 
Training for the new conference officers was held in St. Louis, MO. Those attending 
were Ann Davis, JoAnn Barbour, Doris Wade, and LaNella Smith. 

Our local units and district teams, put in many hours as volunteers in their local 
communities in food and clothes pantries, tutors in schools, visitors in nursing homes, 
at mission project sites as well as their local churches. They put together several 
hundred school kits, health kits, flood buckets, and layettes. 

The North Carolina Conference United Methodist Women would like to express their 
thanks and gratitude to Jimmie Shuler for her four years of service as our Conference 
President.

Campus Ministry 

United Methodist Campus Ministries 

Duke Wesley Fellowship 

Duke Wesley continues to direct energy into the renovation of the Duke Wesley 
House even while we use it for programming, worship, and general fun. Six people 
currently live in the house, modeling for all of us Christian community and Christian 
hospitality. Residents for the upcoming school year have been selected and are already 
thinking together about new and better ways to use this wonderful facility. Owning 
property has not deterred us from our primary responsibility to model mission and 
ministry to the larger Duke Campus. On April 19th, we dedicated our Habitat for 
Humanity House, our fourth in the past six years. For spring break, we sent students to 
Belize and Honduras and kept another team here in Durham to study the issue of Racial 
Reconciliation. Over the winter break, we sent a team to New Orleans, the fourth team 
since Hurricane Katrina hit. In the fall, we journeyed to Hinton Rural Life Center in the 
western part of North Carolina. While these are the headline grabbers, it is the faithful 
and steady work of worshiping and celebrating the Eucharist together each week, 
studying Word and world through small groups, challenging ourselves to move from 
social charity to engaged social justice, and finding time to laugh and play that provide 
the real glue for this community of faith. Thanks be to God for sending us the Holy Spirit 
and uniting us through the love of Christ.

Wesley Foundation at UNC-Chapel Hill 

Campus Ministry at the Wesley Foundation at UNC-Chapel Hill is thriving and 
growing. As we continue to move forward with our building expansion project, students 
are excited and eager to generate new programs to encourage broader participation in 
our ministry. Our new mission statement speaks to this: 

Wesley is a Spirit-led living and learning community where faith development and 
servant leaders are nurtured: rooted in Jesus Christ, grounded in the Wesleyan 
tradition and practicing radical hospitality. 

Our small group ministries continue to increase in number and size. This year, we 
offered two Disciple Bible Studies and two additional Bible studies (Song of Solomon 
and "Troubling Scripture Passages"); we discussed God and Politics, Christ and 
Culture and provided support groups for students in transition (specifically freshmen 
and seniors). We continue to worship weekly and serve the community monthly, while 
also gathering weekly for fellowship and spiritual growth. A group of students spent 
spring break in ministry in the village of Jacu, Panama, painting a church roof and 
school classrooms, and playing with the children. We fielded multiple intramural teams 
(a great way to bring new students into the ministry) and cheered on the men's 
basketball team. And together, we grieved the loss of Eve Carson, UNC Student 
President. 

Wesley is grateful for the ongoing support for campus ministry from the North 
Carolina Conference in the midst of great change. Our commitments to holy hospitality, 
faith formation and leadership development continue to produce fruit that the 
Conference can feel good about. All that we are and all that we do for God in this place 
is to advance God's vision for a just and humane world as defined by the love of Jesus 
Christ. 

Rev. Jan Rivero, Campus Minister, Wesley Foundation UNC-Chapel Hill 

Raleigh Wesley Foundation 

The Raleigh Wesley Foundation in many ways resembles an Acts 2 church. We 
truly practice radical hospitality in that all students have a place around our table. While 
most of our students are United Methodist, there are some who are not and some who 
have little or no church background. We are a place that welcomes the stranger (and the 
familiar) regardless of who they are, what they are, or where they are in their faith 
journey. Some are drawn by our "gastro-evangelism" but they stay because they find a 
place to belong and call home. We are also marked by passionate worship and value 
our role as a worshipping community. At least once a month, we use our weekly meeting 
time to share in worship that is diverse and to share in the celebration of Holy 
Communion. Worship is an important part of our retreats and mission trips as well. 
With the addition of our new worship center, we plan to offer worship opportunities on a 
weekly basis. We are intentional about spiritual formation. We offer a number of small 
group experiences in addition to our weekly meeting; time set aside for Bible study 
discussion and spiritual formation. At least twice a year, we plan weekend retreats to 
build community and strengthen faith. Finally, risk-taking mission is also a vital part of 
our ministry. We believe that our students should be challenged to meet the needs of 
others through mission and service, both locally and abroad. Each year we plan a 
mission trip, alternating between domestic and international trips, so that our students 
can be exposed to diverse cultures, lifestyles and environments. By expanding their 
perspectives, students learn that there are many of our brothers and sisters who are in 
need and for whom we should be concerned. We have also participated in 

campus-wide service events such as Shack-A-Thon to benefit Habitat for Humanity, 
Service NC State to help package over 300,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now, and Service

Raleigh. This past May, we worked with the MERCI Center to repair homes for low 
income families in Wayne County. 

Kirk Oldham, Campus Minister, Raleigh Wesley Foundation 

Wesley Foundation of Greenville 

Each summer, for the past five years, we have had a major improvement project to 
our facilities. This past summer, the project was renovating the Daniel T. Earnhardt 
Auditorium (named after our former director). The students did all the work. They 
constructed and installed acoustic panels and decorative banners, redesigned the 
stage, added theatrical lighting, mounted speakers, an LCD projector and screen to the 
ceiling and rewired everything to a huge control booth in the rear. Perhaps the best thing 
was nearly all expenses were paid for by the students, and yes it really does give a 
boost to the level of praise and worship. 

During the fall, we had two overnighters for over 100 middle school students from 
11 different churches around the NC Conference. The theme was based on the board 
game Clue. Six of our Wesley students dressed up as the Clue characters: Miss Scarlet, 
Col. Mustard, Mr. Green, etc. and were joined at a mystery dinner by the middle 
schoolers. In the course of the meal, the characters all slipped out along with the host, 
Mr. Black (played by our campus minister, Scott Wlkinson). Suddenly the news spread 
that Mr. Black has been murdered and the middle schoolers are all hired as detectives 
to try and solve the mystery. As they sleuth around the Methodist Student Center, they 
encounter each of the characters again gaining more and more clues with each 
encounter. Finally, a video of Mr. Black (made just before his murder) is discovered. All 
participants watch together as Black tells of his new found faith in Christ and that the 
"mystery hidden from the ages is Christ in you." As Black gives a personal word to each 
character, the final clue is given and the murder is finally revealed. Praise and worship, 
games and movies continued all night and the middle schoolers left after a hearty 
breakfast. Needless to say, everyone had a blast! 

We had two successful mission trips during spring break. One group of seven 
went to New Orleans and continued the Hurricane Katrina relief work. Another group of 
19 went to the Dominican Republic. They painted a church, did three days of VBS with 
120 children and served food to a pressing crowd of hungry Haitian refugees living little 
better than slaves on a sugar cane plantation. 

Later in the spring, five rooms at the Methodist Student Center were decorated to 
emphasize five different forms of prayer: Confession, Meditation (featuring a 30' 
labyrinth), New Life, Empowerment (complete with tongues of fire and a mighty wind!) 
and Intercession (with scenes encouraging participants to pray for those who 
experience prejudice, war, hunger or natural disasters). People from area churches, as 
well as students from ECU and Pitt Community College made the 30 to 45 minute 
journey through our "House of Prayer." 

Our Thursday night programs continue to average about 50 students. Often the 
meal is provided by a different UMW group from area churches and after praise and 
worship, a message is given by our director or a student or guest. Please pray that we 
will continue to be a faithful, Christ-centered "Home-Away-From-Home" to college 
students in the Greenville area.

Wesley Foundation at UNC-Pembroke 

The Wesley Foundation is a vital part of First UMC-Pembroke, UNC-Pembroke and 
the Pembroke area. The campus minister and the student intern have been active in all 
three areas, finding new ministries and improving upon old ones. Some of those are as 
follows: 

• The Wesley Foundation maintains an hour of devotion on Wednesday mornings for 
any students who would like to participate. This time of fellowship takes place in the 
University Chapel, a place conducive to Christian worship. 

• A soup kitchen/clothing closet has been established in Pembroke for those how are 
in dire need of assistance. The Wesley Foundation contributes to this effort 
financially and with volunteer time from the campus minister and students. 

• The local high school sponsors a group called the Young Christian Association 
(YCA). Approximately 70-80 students gather before school on Wednesday mornings 
for breakfast and a devotion led by various people from the community. On 
numerous occasions, the Wesley Foundation has furnished breakfast, devotions 
and other materials for the students. 

• In the summer, an intern from Duke, spending a week at First UMC-Pembroke, also 
worked on ways to improve and grow the Wesley Foundation. 

• The campus minister (pastor of First UMC-Pembroke) is abreast of needs in the 
community and on the campus and if there is any way that the Wesley Foundation 
or the church as a whole can meet them, the appropriate actions are carried out. 
The Wesley Foundation at UNC-Pembroke is one with lots of potential. As of yet, it is 

still a small ministry, but the growing campus and the many needs of the town make it 
possible for the Wesley Foundation to be a vital part in the life of the community. The 
campus minister and student intern maintain contact with the district superintendent 
and other local pastors (both United Methodist and others) so that they might better and 
fully understand the mission and vision. Wth God's grace and the love of Christ, the 
Wesley Foundation will thrive at UNC-P

United Christian Campus Ministry in Wilmington 

The mission of United Christian Campus Ministry (UCCM) of Southeastern North 
Carolina, Inc is to encourage, nurture and support the spiritual growth of all the people 
at institutions of higher education in Southeastern North Carolina. We fulfill this mission 
in various ways on the campuses of The University of North Carolina - Wlmington 
(UNCW) and Cape Fear Community College (CFCC). 

In addition to providing experiences for students to grow in their faith through the student 
group FO.C.U.S. (Fellowship of Christian University Students) on the UNCW campus, 
UCCM continues to expand our ministry to others through various programs on both 
campuses. UCCM is well established on both campuses - UNCW and CFCC. In 1972, 
UCCM was the first campus ministry on the UNCW campus and is the first campus 
ministry in the NC Conference to reach out to a community college. UCCM has been 
well received on the CFCC campus since 2001. 

UCCM continues to be well respected on the campuses and is invited by the 
administration to participate in areas that would normally be off limits. Much depends on 
the relationship of trust which is, in part, due to the ecumenical nature of the ministry. 
UCCM is supported by The United Methodist, the Presbyterian PCUSA and the Disciples 
of Christ (Christian) Churches. 

An important event this year was after the Virginia Tech tragedy occurred in the 
spring of 2007. UCCM was called upon to coordinate a student-led memorial service 



381 



and to share a message on behalf of the university regarding the resources available to 
students in need. Over 450 people attended this memorial service on campus. 
UCCM is on the Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) campus, too. UCCM strives to 
find ways to support the students and staff to reduce the stress level if even for a little 
while and to be a ministry of presence to those in need. UCCM does this through 
coffee breaks, stress relief tables, spirituality/health awareness and many one on one 
discussion times. The number of lives touched at the community college is about 800 
per year.

United Christian Campus Ministry at NC Central University 

The United Christian Campus Ministry has been involved in the following ministries 
since July, 2007: 

The Reorganization of Christian Student Fellowship with a focus on mission, 
outreach and discipleship. Students are involved in tutoring elementary and middle 
school students in local community centers. They participate in local worship in area 
churches, attending regional and national conventions, hosting programs and seminars 
on campus. Christian Student Fellowship joined with other ministries on campus to 
host a series on sexuality and living in the will of God. 

FITT Ministry (FAITH, INTEGRITY, TRUTH & TRUST) is a men's ministry to 
encourage, nurture and build relationships for maintaining a spiritual presence in a 
collegiate environment. This ministry was responsible for membership intake, Bible 
study and hosting its first MAN UP conference that focus on issues (i.e. relationships, 
wellness, moral development) that males are confronted with on college campuses. 
Speakers included local pastors, alumni and student leadership of the campus. 

United Christian Campus Ministry continues to provide leadership and presence for 
various university programs such as the Organization Fair, 9/11 Remembrance Service, 
Martin Luther King, Jr. Week Activities, Convocations, Graduation, fundraising and other 
university events.

Christian Educators Fellowship 

The purpose of CEF is to nurture, support, challenge, and advocate for persons 
responsible for working in the all areas of Christian spiritual formation or discipleship 
training, such as Directors of Christian Education, Directors of Children, Youth or Adults, 
Sunday School leaders and teachers, and Small Group ministry leaders. As a response 
to a survey to various Christian Educators serving in an ever-growing spectrum of 
ministry areas, and through a visioning and discerning process, some organizational 
changes were begun in the 2007-2008 season. 

Those working in the area of Christian Education expressed a need for more 
opportunities to learn, to network and for renewal with less distance to travel. With that in 
mind, the Leadership Team developed a strategy for conference-wide training, retreating 
for renewal, and continuation of traditional events (Book and Resource Sharing in May 
and Celebration/Installation of Officers in December) Regional networking groups were 
identified throughout the Conference. 

Plans are for a day for training and a two day retreat for Spiritual Renewal to be held 
each year. The NC chapter of CEF hosted a "day apart" in November with the theme: 
"The Methodist Way: Living in Covenant with Christ and One Another", led by Mary Jane 
Pierce Norton, Family and Hispanic Ministries, General Board for Discipleship and a 
Deacon in the NC Conference. The 2008 retreat, "Call to Sabbath" was held at the 
Bergland Adult Retreat Center at Rockfish Camp and Retreat Center, led by Jo Elaine 
Harris, a Deacon serving as Raleigh District Missions Pastor. 

Regional networking groups are being established. The first to form outside of the 
Raleigh area was the Fayetteville, Sanford, Rockingham group, facilitated by Dorothy 
Funkhouser. This group meets monthly at various churches within the region. Groups in 
the Raleigh, Burlington, and Wilmington districts and other areas are in the forming 
stages. Information about plans, meetings, events and resources are available on a link 
from the NC Conference website. 
http://www.nccumc.org/nccefnew/default.htm 

Several Christian Educators from our Conference will be attending the National 
Christian Educators Conference, "Blessed to be a Blessing" in Albuquerque, New 
Mexico in October 2008 and will be bringing home resources to be shared.

Clergy Care, Committee on 

Since 1971 the Committee on Clergy Care (formerly the Committee on Pastoral Care) 
has served clergy in the North Carolina Annual Conference by providing financial aid for 
confidential professional counseling and marriage and family enrichment. Beginning 2004, 
in keeping with our understanding of the call and ministry of those who serve the Church 
as commissioned minister, deacon, diaconal minister, elder, or licensed local pastor under 
appointment, the Committee is now referred to as the Committee on Clergy Care. The 
Committee is comprised of five members from the Board of Ordained Ministry (one of 
whom serves as chairperson); one representative from the Conference Clergy Living 
Committee; one representative from the Clergy Partners Association; and one Pastoral 
Counselor. Funding for grants and expenses of the committee is included in the budget of 



383 



the Board of Ordained Ministry and the awarding of grants is dependent upon the availability 
of funds. 

Financial aid is available to both clergy and diaconal ministers and their families, as 
described in the section below entitled, "Eligibility for Financial Grants". The financial 
grants, of up to $400 per family per calendar year, are provided to cover one-half of the cost 
of counseling sessions. Ministers under the NC Conference health insurance program 
should review the Health Care Benefits for outpatient psychiatric care. The coordination of 
insurance benefits and Clergy Care Grants should not exceed 100% of fees charged. 

MARRIAGE AND FAMILY ENRICHMENT 
The Committee on Clergy Care encourages participation in marriage and family 
enrichment events, including those focusing on the needs of single, as well as married 
ministers. Grants up to $100 per individual, or $200 per family or couple, per calendar year, 
are available. A schedule and/or outline of the events, leaders' names and credentials and 
verification of participation should accompany a letter of application for the grant. 

ELIGIBILITY FOR FINANCIAL GRANTS 
Persons who qualify for financial grants : 

1. Clergy who are members of the NC Annual Conference whose status is active, 
retired or on leave in accordance with ffll 353, 354 or 355 of The Book of Discipline 2004, or 
any person, regardless of conference relationship, who is serving a local church of the NC 
Annual Conference, or a dependent. 

2. Diaconal ministers and or candidates who are serving a local church and are 
members of the NC Conference. 

3. Grant eligibility continues for two years for persons who have terminated their 
relationship with The United Methodist Church, for surviving spouses of minister and for 
former spouses of eligible persons. 

Conference clergy and diaconal ministers and their families are eligible for grants. A 
family is defined as dependents of the minister living in a ministers' home or parsonage, 
including spouse, children, parents and grandparents. Ministers' children through the age 
of 22, whether attending college or living at home, are eligible to receive financial grants. 

COUNSELORS AND THERAPISTS WHO QUALIFY FOR FINANCIAL GRANTS 

Only counselors and therapists who meet the following criteria qualify to receive grants 
from the Committee on Clergy Care: 

Psychiatrist: American Medical Association (AMA) Board Certification, North Carolina 
License; 

Psychologist (Clinical): Licensed Practicing Psychologist LPP and/or HSP-P), North 
Carolina License; 

Pastoral Counselor: Member, Fellow or Diplomat of the American Association of Pastoral 
Counselors, Inc. (AAPC) 

Counselor: Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage and Family 
Therapists (AAMFT), North Carolina Certified Marriage and Family Therapists, North 
Carolina Licensed Professional Counselors (LPL) 
Social Worker: Member Association of Certified Social Workers (ACSW) 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE 

The Counselor or therapist, at the request of the qualifying client who is receiving the 
counseling, is to make application for a grant to the Chairperson of the Committee on 
Clergy Care in the following manner: 

1. The counselor or therapist requests an application form and instructions from the 

Office of Ministerial Relations. This request should be addressed in care of the 
Office of Ministerial Relations, PO Box 10955, Raleigh, NC 27605, or by calling 
either 919-832-9560 or 800-849-4433, ext 244. 

2. Once the application and instructions for a Clergy Care Grant are received by the 
counselor/therapist, and a determination is made that the client qualifies, the application 
should be completed and returned to the Chairperson of the Committee on Clergy Care. 
To protect the confidentiality of the client, the client's name shall never appear on the 



384 



application. When more than one member of the client's family is involved in counseling, 
all family members shall be assigned the same case number. 

3. The counselor/therapist will receive the financial aid grant on behalf of the client to 
apply to the client's account or to refund to the client if the account has already 
been paid. Clients should request from the therapist a statement showing the 
amount of financial assistance received from the Clergy Care Committee and 
should request the counselor/therapist to contact the Chairperson of Clergy Care 
to negotiate an acceptable procedure if any problems arise concerning the 
process. The client, not the Clergy Care Committee, is responsible for all contracts, 
negotiated fees and payment of services that are provided. 

4. The deadline for submitting grant applications is December 20 th of the calendar 
year in which the services were provided. 

In 2007, the Committee on Pastoral Care granted $8742.76 for counseling sessions. 
This represents 501 sessions with counselors and therapists during the calendar year. 
Grants processed in 2007 totaled 48, representing 250 sessions for clergy, 7 for cleric and 
spouse, 66 for spouse, 34 for children. Of these 48 grants, 8 received the 2007 maximum 
of $400.00 in assistance and 4 received at least half to two-thirds of the maximum grant . 

Alice Kunka, Chairperson 



Clergy Counseling and Consultation, Commission on 

The Commission on Clergy Counseling and Consultation (CCCC), established by 
the 2000 Annual Conference, addresses the needs of clergy and their families for 
psychological services. The director of the Clergy Counseling and Consultation Service, 
Jane Clark Moorman, MSW, LCSW, BCD, continues to: 

1) Provide diagnostic assessment, counseling, psychotherapy, and referral 
services for clergy and members of their families within their faith perspective; 

2) Provide mental health consultation to clergy regarding their pastoral 
counseling work with parishioners and round-the-clock assistance in handling 
crises; 

3) Establish a network of mental health providers throughout the North Carolina 
Conference who understand the particular stresses of clergy families and can 
provide counseling/psychotherapy for them upon referral; 

4) Plan/provide continuing education programs designed to enhance ssessment, 
counseling and referral skills of our clergy. 

Because this service has been supported by appropriations from the NC Annual 
Conference, it has been possible until now for the CCCS to provide these services while 
charging no fees to our clergy. As always, Ms. Moorman maintains a policy of strict 
confidentiality, guarding the privacy of those who seek her services. While clergy 
always have the option of seeking services from other providers, utilizing their health 
insurance benefit, the CCCS has remained in demand and the task force appointed by 
Bishop Gwinn recommended in 2007 that the service be continued. Further information 
regarding the CCCS or appointments is available by calling Ms. Moorman at toll-free 
866-440-4200 or Durham local 919-402-4200. 

The Bishop's Task Force also recommended in 2007 that the CCCS work toward 
self-funding, and suggested filing for insurance reimbursement. In response to this, the 



385 



2007 Annual Conference deleted operational funds from the CCCS budget beginning in 
2009. Although the CCCC would prefer to retain the current funding mechanism, it has 
over the past year been diligently seeking to respond to this mandate by exploring a 
variety of options, thus far without success. The Insurance Committee has decided 
against direct funding from insurance funds, and NC Blue Cross/Blue Shield has 
closed its panel to new mental health providers. We are communicating with several 
endowments in order to identify possible grant sources and to identify other fund raising 
options. To address this need for 2009 operating funds, an Advance Special # 
S00182 has been established with the Annual Conference in the hope that some of 
you who read this report might wish to support this program financially. 

Also in response to the Task Force, the CCCC has endeavored to improve its 
connection with the Annual Conference by its chairman attending meetings of the 
Spiritual Formation and Leadership Development Circle and has a written plan for 
coverage should its director become incapacitated. 

The long term stability of this program, however, depends on long term financial 
stability, and, as this report is prepared, this remains uncertain. 

Ted R. Kunstling, M.D., Chairman 

Conference Relations, Committee on 

The Committee on Conference Relations has as its primary responsibility the assisting 
of any clergy who seek to change or terminate their relationship with the Annual Conference. 
Changes in conference relationship may occur in any of the following ways: 1) 
discontinuation, 2) leave of absence, 3) retirement, 4) sabbatical leave, 5) maternity/paternity 
leave, 6) family leave, 7) termination of conference relationship (surrender of credentials), 
8) honorable location. 

The Conference Relations Committee meets with the person who is seeking a change in 
conference relationship upon the request of that person, or upon request of the Cabinet or 
the Board of Ordained Ministry. The committee attempts to determine what is appropriate 
in each case by posing questions, offering counsel and providing support. The committee 
then discusses the request and acts upon it by making a recommendation to the Board of 
Ordained Ministry. In any event, the person requesting the change and the Conference 
Relations Committee acting on the request must follow the requirements in The Book of 
Discipline. 

The Book of Discipline provides specific guidelines applying to each of the categories 
of conference membership. All those persons in the various categories of conference 
membership (other than the effective relationship) should remember to familiarize 
themselves with, and adhere to, the disciplinary guidelines which apply to that category. 
The Committee on Conference Relations issues a yearly reminder of these guidelines 
through a letter approved by the Board of Ordained Ministry at its annual meeting. Following 
the appropriate guidelines is particularly important for clergy on leave of absence; for these 
persons, exercise of any ministerial function is restricted to the Charge Conference in 
which their membership is held. The Conference Relations Committee would take this 
opportunity to reiterate that pastors on leave of absence cannot perform weddings, conduct 
funerals, or administer the sacraments outside the bounds (both geographical and 
membership bounds) of that charge conference. 

Every spring (since 1987) the Conference Relations Committee has hosted a 
luncheon for those who will be retiring from the North Carolina Annual Conference at the 
June session of that year. At this luncheon, the retirees and their spouses are informed 
about various matters relating to their retirement such as insurance, housing, and pension 
benefits. This year's retirement luncheon was held at St. Luke United Methodist Church in 
Goldsboro on Tuesday, May 13, 2008.

Continuing Education, Committee on 

The Continuing Education Committee of the Board of Ordained Ministry has the 
responsibility of developing continuing education programs that will enable ministers to 
fulfill the Disciplinary requirements. According to the Book of Discipline, "Clergy shall be 
expected to continue their education and spiritual growth throughout their careers, including 
carefully developed personal programs of study augmented periodically by involvement in 
organized educational and spiritual growth activities." The Discipline further states that, "In 
most cases the ordained ministers' continuing education and spiritual growth program 
should allow for such leaves at least one week each year and at least one month during 
one year of each quadrennium. Such leaves shall not be considered as part of the ministers' 
vacations and shall be planned in consultation with their charges or other agencies to 
which they are appointed as well as the bishop, district superintendent, and Annual 
Conference Continuing Education Committee." 

In providing the resources to enable pastors to meet the minimum requirement of The 
Discipline, the Committee on Continuing Education has edited a brochure that applies to 
all clergy and diaconal ministers of the NC Annual Conference. The brochure contains 
information defining Continuing Education, the role of the local church, and how the pastor's 
continuing education can be financed. The brochure is printed as part of this report. 

Continuing Education for Ministry in the NC Annual Conference : 
Rationale: A prime expectation of every minister of the NC Annual Conference is professional 
growth. In recent years, one of the major avenues through which such growth occurred has 
been continuing education. In The Book of Discipline it states, "There are professional 
responsibilities that elders are expected to fulfill and that represent a fundamental part of 
their accountability and a primary basis for their continued eligibility for annual appointment. 
Growth in vocational competence and effectiveness through continuing formation is 
expected of conference members." 

Definition: Continuing education is defined as an organized structured program of 
formal study under competent leadership with clearly defined goals and objectives. Here 
the key words are "organized," "competent leadership," and "clearly defined goals and 
objectives." By this definition certain activities, though worthwhile, are not considered 
"continuing education"; e.g., degree programs, recreational programs, course of study 
programs, promotional meetings, worship services, entertainments, undirected reading, 
and study travel (except for limited lecture, seminar, or workshop time), and the like. 

The Conference Program : 

The Conference Board of Ordained Ministry, through the Committee on Continuing 
Education, performs three functions: 1) it sets minimum continuing education standards 
for ministry; 2) it establishes guidelines for continuing education; and 3) it seeks to 
insure their availability. 

1. Minimum Standards: The NC Conference has established as a minimum standard 
one Continuing Education Unit (CEU) to be earned by each minister from an 
approved continuing education program each year. One CEU is defined as ten 
contact hours of participation in an approved continuing education program. 

2. Guidelines for Continuing Education Programs: CEUs will be approved for those 
persons sponsored by organizations which are accredited by a) a regional 
educational agency (such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), 
b) a professional accrediting agency (such as the American Medical Association), 
or c) the Council on the Continuing Education Unit. It should also be noted that 
only those programs which relate directly to ministerial growth and development 
will be approved. 



387 



3. Insuring their Availability: Efforts by the Board of Ordained Ministry to insure the 
availability of continuing education programs include encouraging conference- 
related and other colleges within the Conference bounds to offer courses for 
ministers, providing supplementary financial aid for ministers, publicizing approved 
programs, and identifying specific subject areas for needed programs. 
Role of the Local Church: In addition to the minister, the local church has a significant 
stake in the success of continuing education programs. The local church, therefore, has 
an important role to play in continuing education. 

The Pastor-Parish Relations Committee of the Local Church : 

1. Confers with the pastor and the district superintendent in the development of a 
continuing education program that will enhance the total ministry of the church. 

2. Provides study leaves at least one week each year and at least one month during 
one year of each quadrennium. Such study leaves are not to be considered 
vacation time. 

3. Recommends to the church's Finance Committee budgetary funds to be applied 
toward the minister's continuing education program. In providing funds for 
continuing education programs, the Pastor-Parish Relations Committee should 
insure that only those programs which meet both the definitions and specific 
guidelines above are funded. 

Financial Aid to Clergy : 

Funding for continuing education is the combined responsibility of the participant, the 
congregation, the sponsoring institution, and the Annual Conference. Conference funds 
for continuing education are derived as a portion of conference apportionments. Thus, it is 
not possible (nor is it desirable) for the conference to assume a major responsibility. 
Continuing education can be expensive. For this reason, local churches are encouraged 
to provide a minimum of $300. 00 annually for each clergy and diaconal ministers' continuing 
education. 

All persons under Episcopal appointment to charges, conference staff positions, 
Conference Evangelists, retired supply, and Extension Ministries appointed to conference- 
related agencies and institutions are eligible for grants from the Conference funds provided: 

1. The program meets the definitions and Conference guidelines described above. 

2. The applicant has documented his or her efforts to secure funding from other 
sources, including local church, Duke Endowment, and personal resources. 

3. The application for a grant is filed on the appropriate form which furnishes 
complete information about the event and bears the signatures of the applicant, 
the Pastor-Parish chairperson, and district superintendent. 

Continuing Education Grant Guidelines : 

1. The maximum grant to an individual applicant over one conference year is $300.00 

2. Grants are available for ordained, commissioned, licensed and diaconal 
ministers who receive less than the CAC (Conference Average Compensation), 
which includes salary and utilities, or less. 

3. Applicants must use all funds designated by their local congregation or employing 
organization prior to requesting Conference grants. 

4. Grants for District Continuing Education Seminars shall be limited to $100.00, 
based upon the availability of funds, regardless of the number of CEUs involved 
and within the limits outlined in #1, 2, and 3. 

5. Grants for Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) can be given when the CPE 
program offers the required CEU credits. No more than $300.00 per CPE unit will 
be granted in any given year. Grants for CPE are given only for non-degree 
programs. 

6. Holy Land Trips: A grant according to the current policy may be made once in a 
pastor's career, providing funding is available. 



388 



Monitoring Continuing Education Units: 

1. The district superintendent, in annual consultation, may suggest to the clergy or 
diaconal minister the area of continuing education he or she should take to 
facilitate his or her professional growth. The pastor's annual Continuing Education 
Report will be given to the district superintendent at the annual consultation or 
other appropriate time. 

2. Clergy shall have the responsibility for securing from the institution granting 
Continuing Education credit a record of earned credit and providing a copy of this 
record to the Office of Ministerial Relations. 

3. It is the responsibility of each participant to determine, in consultation with the 
Committee on Continuing Education, if a proposed program meets the criteria 
prior to participation and funding. 

E. Powell Osteen, Jr., Chairperson 

Enlistment, Committee on 

A simple look at the ages and faces of clergy in The United Methodist Church, one has 
a better understanding of the statistical projections about the tremendous loss of clergy 
through retirement over the next eight to ten years. 

In our conference, for example, up to 100 clergy are eligible for retirement. The means by 
which clergy are eligible for retirement are as follows: 

§ Mandatory retirement at age 70 

§ Early retirement 

§ Retirement base upon years of service 

If these eligible clergy were to retire in the next 3-5 years, the Bishop and the Cabinet 
would be faced with an awesome void within the North Carolina Annual Conference. 

The primary concern of the Committee on Enlistment is to raise the awareness of our 
constituency within the bounds of the North Carolina Conference so that identification and 
enlistment of ordained ministers is an ongoing concern that touches every dimension of 
the body of Christ. In keeping with this goal the Committee on Enlistment is ready to 
provide direction and encouragement in the process of clergy enlistment. More importantly, 
the primary responsibility for identifying youth, young adults, and second career individuals 
who are ready to answer God's call, falls upon local church pastors, laity in the local 
churches, and campus ministers. 

All too often, some people place God's call to the ministry behind economic or security 
concerns. Sometimes a friend or a respected leader in a local church is more aware of a 
calling upon an individual than the person him or herself. One of the roles of individuals 
and Pastor-Parish Relations Committees in local churches is to confirm the claim of God 
upon those that are called by directing them to their local church pastors, District 
Superintendents, and District Committees on Ministry. 

Previously the denomination offered an event on the even-numbered years designed 
to help persons who are "exploring" a call to ministry. The 2006 Exploration event was held 
November 17-19, 2006 in Jacksonville, Florida. Due to a recent change to every four years, 
the next Exploration weekend will take place in 201 0, and it is designed to help one explore 
the call to ministry, discover one's giftedness for ministry and ways in which to fulfill the call. 

There are other spiritual encounters [opportunities] that have proven to be helpful in 
understanding a call to ministry, such as, Disciple Bible Study and Emmaus. Events like 
these have awakened and provided opportunities for so many to hear and respond to 
God's call. 

The Committee on Enlistment encourages all pastors and laity to assist [the Holy 
Spirit] in facilitating, clarifying and discovering God's call. To assist those whom God has 
called into ministry, is a high and holy honor and commitment.

Itinerant Clergy Moving Expense, Committee on 
Effective Date - June 1, 2008 

The Itinerant Clergy Moving Expense Committee met to study moving expense needs 
and policies. 
The Committee makes the following recommendations. 

I. Eligibility 

A Pastors of local churches continuing under appointment to local churches within 
the Conference, district superintendents, and Conference ministerial staff whose 
salaries are paid from the Conference treasurer's office. 

B. Pastors in section I. A. who become Conference Evangelists upon moving from 
an appointment to new residence. Their moving expense to return to any of the 
above categories will also be paid. 

C. Pastors in section I. A. who retire from serving appointment or who assume 
approved incapacity leave or return into active service from approved incapacity 
leave. 

D. Widows or widowers of those identified in section I. A. upon moving from place of 
appoint-ment to new residence. 

E. Pastors moving into an appointment in the North Carolina Conference to assume 
full time or student appointments under section I. A. 

F. Interim Supply pastors 

G. Pastors being appointed to leave of absence are entitled to moving expense for 
one leave of absence. 

H. Pastors who are called to active military duty will be entitled to moving expense- at 
the time of call up, if need be, and at the time of return, if need be, if not covered by 
the military, with substanti-ation of the military orders. 

I. Persons moving who are not defined above will not be eligible to make claim. 

II. Payment of Claims 

A All reimbursements must be substantiated with paid receipts for actual moving 
expenses. All reimbursements must be for expenses which are deductible for 
income tax purposes according to Internal Revenue code, Section 217, non- 
taxable fringe benefits. Payment will be granted to all who are eligible to make 
claims as follows: 

1. Active itinerant clergy in section I. A., I.B., I.E., I.F. ,I.G. and I.H. (except retiring 
clergy, widows, widowers, and clergy couples) will receive reimbursement of 
costs up to $2,000.00 with submission of paid receipts for actual moving 
expense. 

2. Retiring itinerant clergy, widows, or widowers will receive reimbursement of 
costs up to $3,000.00 with submission of paid receipts for actual moving 
expenses. The retirement amount may be granted upon request when taking 
incapacity leave in lieu of receiving the retirement benefit at retirement. 

3. Itinerant clergy couples will receive reimburse-ment of costs up to $2,400.00 
with submission of paid receipts for actual moving expenses. If only one 
member of the clergy couple is re appointed, section II.A.1. will apply. 

B. Travel: Mileage is reimbursed at the standard IRS rate for moving expense 
deductions. This rate may be paid per mile per vehicle for a single trip to move 
each vehicle to the new residence. If a vehicle is used to move household goods, 
i.e., in lieu of a moving company, additional trips may be reimbursed as necessary. 
The per trip mileage will be computed from appointment to appointment, or from 
the Conference boundary to the appointment, or from the appointment to the 
residence/Conference boundary (in case of retirement), whichever is less. Either 
the mileage as described above or actual out of pocket expenses for gas, oil, etc, 
may be reimbursed from the Conference boundary. 

C. Reporting and Payment Requirements 



390 



1. IRS guidelines require that moving expense reimbursements be reported on 
a W-2. Based on recommendation from legal counsel and their consultations 
with the Internal Revenue Service, we recommend that the W-2 be issued by 
the local church. The Conference Treasurer will provide to the local church all 
moving expense information to be reported on the W-2. The Conference 
Treasurer will make payment to the new local church appointment. The new 
local church will pay the clergy and include the moving expense on the W-2 
that they issue to the pastor at the end of the year. In absence of a new 
appointment, payment will be made to and reported by the old appointment. 

2. The Conference Treasurer will make this payment upon receiving the Itinerant 
Clergy Moving Expense Requisition form signed by the person receiving 
reimbursement and approved by the sending District Superintendent, along 
with appropriate receipts to substantiate the expenses. 

3. The pastor should send the completed document, "So You're Moving" checklist 
to the sending District Superintendent. This will fulfill the 2004 Discipline, 
Paragraph 2532.4, which states "The chairperson of the board of trustees or 
the chairperson of the parsonage committee, if one exists, the chairperson of 
the committee on pastor-parish relations, and the pastor shall make an 
annual review of the church-owned parsonage to ensure proper 
maintenance." 

4. Moving expense funds will be withheld by the Conference treasurer if the 
district superintendent determines that the parsonage was inadequately 
cleaned or was damaged beyond normal wear and tear. If an inspection by 
the district superintendent and the pastor-parish relations committee or the 
parsonage committee reveals monetary needs for cleaning or repairs, or for 
having the fuel tank filled, the remaining balance of the moving expense due 
said pastor shall be made payable to the respective district to pay for needed 
cleaning or repairs. If the district superintendent or the moving pastor is NOT 
in agreement with said pas-tor-parish relations committee or the parsonage 
committee, the superinten-dent may request the arbitration committee of the 
clergy living committee to inspect the parsonage involved and give an impartial 
recommendation. 

The Conference treasurer will make an advance payment up to $600.00 to eligible 
itinerant clergy to cover the expense of deposit and fees for moving expenses 
prior to their move, upon approval by the district superintendent. Those receiving 
an advance must substantiate their expenditures, and any money that is left over 
shall be refunded to the Conference treasurer. All advance payments shall be 
included in W-2 information provided to the local church by the Conference 
Treasurer for inclusion on the W-2. 

No additional claim can be made against a local church, district, or the Conference 
for payment of moving expenses. 

Reimbursable expenses include the cost of boarding and moving domestic 
animals, the moving of recreational vehicles, boats, etc., moving household and 
personal goods, travel as defined in II. B., lodging, packing, crating, in-transit 
storage and insurance, labor costs, and any other expense necessary to physically 
move household items. Expenses which are not reimbursable include meals, 
purchase of household items, or any other item not reasonable or necessary for 
the move. 

The request for moving expense reimbursement must be received in the 
Treasurer's Office no later than four months following the date of the move. 
Reimbursement will be considered a qualified, non-taxable fringe benefit not 
subject to income and self-employment tax when: 



391 



• Your move is 50 or more miles from the old appointment to the new 
appointment and 

• Your new appointment is full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 
months at the new location. 

If your appointment does not meet the above conditions, then the reimbursement 
will be reported as taxable for both income and employment tax. However, if your 
reimbursement is treated as taxable income, an additional stipend in the amount 
of 20% of the taxable income portion will be provided. The maximum stipend will 
be no more than 20% of the applicable limit stated in section II. A. 
III. Review Committee 

A There will be a Review Committee consisting of two persons appointed by the 
chairperson of the Council on Finance and Administration, one district 
superintendent appointed by the Bishop, the Conference treasurer, the director of 
Ministerial Relations and the chair of the Moving Expense Committee. 
B. The Review Committee will consider- and have final authority over any questionable 
or disallowed claim or special claim beyond allowances set in the approved plan. 

Jane Johnson, Chairperson 

Laity, Commission on 

The primary purpose of the Conference Board of Laity is to make known the good 
news of God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ, and to challenge, inspire and 
equip the laity of the North Carolina Annual Conference for ministry in the local church. 

In the past year the District Lay Leaders have implemented training workshops for 
local church Lay Leaders, held District Lay Rallies to celebrate the ministries of laity, and 
ensured that Lay Speaker Training courses were offered in their districts. This year all 
districts held events for equipping the local church to participate in the "Healthy 
Congregations" Assessment. The District Lay Leaders reported that these events were 
extremely well attended. The congregations of the NC Conference have since begun the 
process of "assessing their health" and making "ministry action plans". In many churches 
there is a real sense of expectation and anticipation growing as lay people see new ways 
to extend radical hospitality, participate in passionate worship and risk-taking mission and 
ministry, and give and receive focused spiritual formation all for the purpose of making 
disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world! 

Laity Sunday was promoted on the third Sunday in October by the General Board of 
Discipleship, and many congregations participated. However, because lay people are 
participating more in worship services throughout the entire year "Laity Sunday" has taken 
on different forms in some congregations. 

Our Conference United Methodist Men, United Methodist Women, and United Methodist 
Youth sponsored many events aimed at spiritual enrichment, leadership development, 
and education (please refer to their individual reports). 

Every year the opportunity to lift up an Outstanding Lay Ministry is given to each 
district. These will be celebrated at Annual Conference as we "shine the spotlight" on 
excellence in ministry. (Please refer to the following report to learn more) This year for the 
first time we will also be recognizing the "Acts 2 Congregations" in response to a challenge 
set forth by Bishop Gwinn at the 2006 Annual Conference. 

Once again, the Conference Board of Laity will offer a "Laity Event" to be held during 
Annual Conference on Friday June 13 th at 7:30 p.m. The speaker for our "Laity Event" will be 
Dr. Leonard Sweet, author of over 20 books, speaker, and teacher. 

Over the last year, the Conference Board of Laity has continued to embraced the 
council of Bishop's seven pathways as a means of making disciples of Jesus Christ for 
the transformation of the world and has begun to see its' role in the life of the Annual 
Conference in a new light. Excitement is building as we discover fresh ways to live into this 



392 



focus through our servant leadership. May our work together as disciples of Jesus Christ 
bring glory to God. 

Emily Innes, Conference Lay Leader 

Lay Ministries of the Year

individuals in the surrounding community. Since its beginning the team has built over 45 
ramps so that persons can have access to life beyond their homes. 
Durham District: Asburv Temple UMC-"Feed mv Sheep Food Ministry" 

On a shoestring budget with 100% volunteer help including students from NC 
Central University and Duke Divinity School, this ministry serves hot meals and bagged 
groceries to nearly 100 households twice a month. Because of this ministry, Asbury 
Temple is now clearly identified as being in solidarity with the community and with the 
poor in the community. The ministry also serves as a conduit for receiving new 
members into the church family. 
Elizabeth City District: First UMC Elizabeth Citv-" Tutorina / Mentoring Ministry" 

First UMC formed a partnership with a local elementary school which had a number of 
"at risk" students. The purpose of the partnership was to provide tutoring for those in need 
and also to establish a mentoring relationship with each student thus providing the student 
with a loving supportive adult role model in their lives. 
Fayetteville District: Camp Ground UMC-"The Kings Men Outreach Ministry" 

"The Kings Men" were organized as an outreach ministry of the United Methodist Men 
to provide spiritual healing through song to those who have hurting hearts, those who are 
lonely, ill, or unable to come to church. The group has carried this ministry of song to many 
places and people throughout the Fayetteville District. 
Goldsboro District: Warsaw UMC-"Warsaw Outreach Center" 

Warsaw UMC in partnership with the Warsaw Presbyterian Church has opened an 
Outreach Ministry Center. Through the sale of donated clothes and household items the 
center generates funds to provide financial assistance to persons in need of help with 
food, clothing, medication, utility bills, and auto repair. 
Greenville District: St James UMC "Men of Purpose — United Methodist Men's Ministry" 

The primary mission of the "Men of Purpose" ministry at St. James UMC is to reach, 
engage, and disciple men for Christ, through friendship, Bible study, and service. During 
two major events recently held by the group, 2 men accepted Christ for the first time, 65 
men recommitted their lives to Christ, and 94 men signed up for a 6-week follow-up small 
group study. St. James UMM have given away over 1,000 books as a resources for this 
ministry. 
New Bern District: Atlantic UMC — "Senior Luncheon" 

From September through June, Atlantic UMC, using 4 cooking teams (25-30 volunteers) 
serves lunch once a week to nearly 75 senior adults in their community and surrounding 
area. Fellowship, spiritual devotional time, and entertainment are all a part of the weekly 
gatherings. 
Raleigh District: All Raleigh District Churches-"Race of Grace Ministry" 

The Race of Grace is a weekend-long event organized by the Raleigh District of the 
United Methodist Church. The weekend includes the Links of Grace golf tournament, 
Tour de Grace bike ride, and Race of Grace 5K road race/walk — all to bring focus to 
three important areas of need in our community on a rotating basis: homelessness, 
hunger, and lack of healthcare. In 2008, our homeless brothers and sisters benefited from 
the Race of Grace weekend. Over the past five years, walkers, runners, bikers, golfers, and 
volunteers have raised over $241,000 for those in need in the Raleigh District. In addition, 
collections of shoes, blankets, socks, band aids, and non-perishable foods have been 



393 



distributed to area agencies. The Race of Grace weekend is unique in that it links Raleigh 
district churches, concerned individuals from our community, and fitness-minded individuals 
with those in need. The Race of Grace 5K draws over 1,000 walkers and runners, features 
musicians and fans lining the 3.1 mile course down Raleigh's Hillsborough Street, and 
treats age-group winners to home-baked cakes. That's 78 home-baked cakes! 
Rockingham District: Asburv UMC-"East Lumberton Community Sing" 

The community was the focus of a police investigation known as "Operation 
Summertime Blue" and thirty people were arrested for drug trafficking, prostitution, 
gambling, and possession of weapons. Asbury UMC responded to their hurting 
community by organizing a "community sing" in which over 12 church choirs and 
soloists participated. The event fed the physical and spiritual needs of the community 
with food and also with the word of God through song. 
Rocky Mount District : Englewood UMC- "Support Our Troops Ministry" 

Englewood UMC contacted Chaplain Charles Johnson who was deployed in Iraq to 
inquire if he would be interested in a partnership with their church. When the church 
received a positive reply, they began sending "care packages" of snack foods, personal 
care products, reading material, crossword puzzle books, and cases of Englewood United 
Methodist Men's peanuts every week to Iraq for Chaplain Johnson to distribute to the men 
and women in his unit. All members of the church participate by donating items or monetary 
gifts. The church has since formed partnerships with two other Chaplains. 
Sanford District: Jonesboro UMC- "Beyond the Walls Ministry" 

When the local outreach ministry center closes each week, fresh fruits, vegetables, 
and meat are left over that cannot be distributed by the center for various reasons. Two 
women, one Anglo and one Latino from Jonesboro UMC collect and bag the excess food 
and take it into the surrounding neighborhood to give to families living in poverty. Although 
the two women do not speak the same language they share a special bond through their 
desire to serve Jesus Christ by feeding the hungry. 
Wilmington District: Dixon's Chapel UMC- Food Pantry Ministry" 

Due to the hardships facing the local fishing and shrimping industry, many people are 
going hungry in the community. Seven days a week, the local Food Lion Grocery Store 
donates excess fruits, vegetables, baked goods, and meats they would otherwise throw 
away to volunteers from Dixon's Chapel UMC who distribute the food to families in need. 
Some volunteers work as many as 3-5 hours every day in this ministry. 

Ministerial Education Fund, Committee on 

The Ministerial Education Fund (MEF) is one of the most "unsung blessings" of our 
connectional support! In addition to being the underlying support to our seminaries, it 
provides invaluable support for the following ministries: Annual Conference Board of 
Ordained Ministry for programs they provide for clergy, both Elder and Deacon in Full 
Connection, diaconal ministers; scholarships for students studying for the ordained , both 
Elder and Deacon In Full Connection in the 13 outstanding United Methodist seminaries 
and in non-United Methodist seminaries approved by the Division of Ordained Ministry and

Church; Continuing Education; Course of Study Schools (more than 4,700 people are 
involved in 12 Course of Study Schools); research and special programs related to candidacy 
and enlistment; pastoral care initiatives; clergy women concerns; racial and ethnic 
concerns; spiritual formation; testing and evaluation; training of boards of ordained ministry; 
international theological education; jurisdictional block grants; supervision issues and

Christian Leadership with Blair Sheppard, dean of Duke's Fuqua School of Business; 
Ronald Heifetz, author and Harvard University 

Professor; Adam Hamilton, United Methodist pastor; and a distinguished panel of 
United Methodist Bishops. A detailed brochure will be available from Duke Divinity 
School later this summer. Individuals are encouraged to contact the Center for 
Continuing Education for more information (www.divinity.duke.edu/learningforlife, email

Older Adult Ministries, Committee on 

The committee seeks to be the focal point for aging issues which impact the 
program and ministry of the local church and the Annual Conference as a whole. The 
committee hopes to raise the consciousness of the how, where, and why the church 
ought to be involved in ministry to, with, and by older adults. The committee has 
promoted the following services and learning programs: 

1. The Conference Web page now offers a link for Older Adult Ministry. 

2. A resource library is maintained in the Conference Audio-Visual Library for use 
by local churches. 

3. The 'Norman T. Allers Academy' for Older Adults is a certification program 
established by the Older Adult Association of the Southeastern Jurisdiction to 
provide training and necessary credentialing for those who work in Older Adult 
Ministry. 

4. Each year in August, we encourage Older Adults and those working in the area 
of Older Adult Ministry to attend the SEJ Older Adult Conference at Lake 
Junaluska. In 2008, the Reverend Doctor Mickey Efird will be the Bible Study 
Leader. The theme will be "Sing Unto the Lord a New Song: Crafting a Legacy 
for the Next Generation" 

5. We partner with other conference groups and agencies in the sponsorship of 
education and training of clergy and lay persons in the Spiritual Development of 
older adults. On May 14, 2008, the OAM Committee at the Conference level held 
its second 'Day Apart' in Garner. The Reverend Doctor Belton Joyner was 
Worship Leader; there were workshops, displays, etc. The committee looks 
forward to enlarging this event in 2009! 

6. The possibility of partnering with MERCI to offer a work camp type training for 
older adults in being explored. 

7. The Burlington District, with the support and encouragement of the NCC OAM 
Committee and other ministries and agencies hosts a program entitled "Third 
Thursdays at Chestnut Ridge." This program, which began in 2006, "provides a 
way for older adults to use their special knowledge and life experiences for the 
benefit of themselves and others." 



396 



We have developed and will continue to distribute resource packets to Pastors 
new to the conference at the yearly training event. The packets contain useful 
resources and ideas for Older Adult Ministry.

Ordained Ministry, Board of 

The North Carolina Conference Board of Ordained Ministry is pleased and privileged 
to present to the clergy session of the North Carolina Annual Conference our report for 
2008. 

Our Board is a strong, representative body from the clergy and laity of this Annual 
Conference wrestling constantly with its responsibilities outlined in The Book of Discipline 
2004 (11634). These duties require the Board to exercise strong care in its examination of 
candidates for ordination in a way which is both fair and diligent. The Board also seeks 
always to encourage and sustain those in the process, and to provide resources for 
growth for those already involved with ministry to local churches and other places of mission. 

To provide this report, the Board of Ordained Ministry members have given eleven (11) 
full days in meetings, conference calls and interviews along with innumerable times for 
committee assignments. All of this is summarized in the names and recommendations 
found in this submission of our work for your approval. 

The duties of the Board of Ordained Ministry include: 

1) To assume the primary responsibility for the enlistment of ordained clergy, with 
due regard for the inclusive nature of the Church. It provides guidance for these 
persons in the process of education, training, and ordination. 

2) To examine all applicants as to their fitness for ordained, commissioned, licensed, 
or consecrated ministry and their election as: a) Diaconal Ministers, b) Local 
Pastors, c) Associate Members, d) Probationary Members, and e) Full Members 
of the Annual Conference. 

3) To interview and report recommendations concerning: a) Candidates for 
Commissioning b) Students to be appointed to attend school, c) Candidates for 
ordination as Deacon, and d) Candidates for ordination as Elder. 

4) To interview applicants and make recommendations concerning changes in 
ministerial relationships: Leaves of Absence, Retirement, Sabbatical Leaves, 
Incapacity Leaves, Less-than-Full-time Appointments, and Readmission to, or 
the termination of, conference membership. 

5) To provide support services for the ordained minister's career development, 
including personal and career counseling, continuing education, assistance in 
preparation for retirement, and matters pertaining to ministerial morale. 

6) To provide a means of evaluating the effectiveness of the clergy in the Annual 
Conference. 

7) To interpret the high ethical standards of ministry as set forth in The Book of 
Discipline 2004, and to study matters pertaining to character. 

8) To administer the portion of the Ministerial Education Fund for use by the Annual 
Conference. 

Members of the North Carolina Conference Board of Ordained Ministry have worked 
faithfully to fulfill their duties. 

This year we are pleased to report that (17) persons were elected to Probationary 
Membership and commissioned on the Elder Track; (1 ) person was elected to Probationary 
Membership and commissioned on the Deacon Track; (1) person was elected for ordination 
as a Deacon in Full Connection; (6) persons were elected for ordination as Elder in Full 
Connection (moving from Probationary Membership under the 2000 Discipline). 



397 



This year's retirement class includes (17) Elders in Full Connection, (1) Deacon in 
Full Connection, (0) Associate Members, (0) Probationary Members and (0) Local Pastors. 
We are deeply grateful for their love, commitment and service to the North Carolina Annual 
Conference. Many opportunities continue to open for persons in this field of service. 

Please note that various committee reports follow this introduction and are significant 
for the various areas of concern they address. All of this material, as well as our supportive 
services during the year, have been provided through the Office of Ministerial Relations 
under the leadership of Dr. Paul L. Leeland, Linda L. Bourey and Robbie W. Barrett. We are 
indebted to these individuals for their excellent work and dedication to the Ordained Ministry 
of our Annual Conference.

Psychological Testing and Background Checks, Committee on 

The Conference Board of Ordained Ministry evaluates all prospective and continuing 
candidates in accordance with requirements in The Book of Discipline 2004. Those 
seeking to enter ordained ministry or licensed ministry undergo a comprehensive evaluation. 
One component of the evaluation process involves psychological testing and background 
investigation, conducted under the direction of the Committee on Psychological Testing 
and Background Checks. 

Psychological testing serves two purposes: (1) It provides the individual with valuable 
information, feedback and guidance related to psychological health and wholeness. (2) It 
provides the Board of Ordained Ministry and District Committees with useful information 
as they evaluate and mentor prospective and continuing candidates to determine their 
fitness, potential, and promise for fruitful and effective service in ordained and/or licensed 
ministry. 

Psychological evaluation services are being provided through a contract with Dr. Bert 
Lucas, a member of St. Luke United Methodist Church in Sanford, North Carolina. Dr. 
Lucas has done an outstanding job this past couple of years in providing this service, and 
the Committee is indebted to him for his guidance and counsel. 

Expenses for psychological evaluations are borne by the Board of Ordained Ministry 
for those persons residing within the annual conference and for those transferring into the 
conference when they are included with North Carolina Conference candidates for group 
testing. 

Background checks on prospective and continuing candidates are furnished through 
a contract with Kroll Background America, Inc. Each background check costs $60.00 and 
the cost is borne by the applicant. The applicant is provided with a copy of their background 
check report once completed by Kroll. 

On average the Committee processes 75 psychological tests and 80 background 
checks a year. 

The other members of the Committee on Psychological Testing and Background 
Checks are the following persons: Jimmy Cummings, Clyde Denny, Paul Phillips, Sue 
Robertson, David Wade and Ray Wittman. I am very appreciative of the seriousness and 
dedication with which the Committee approaches its work. The Committee would like to 
thank Paul Leeland for his guidance and wisdom, and Linda Bourey for her assistance 
with the administrative aspects of our work.

Residency in Ordained Ministry, Committee on 

The North Carolina Conference Residency in Ordained Ministry (RIOM) program began 
in fulfillment of 11417. 3 of the 1984 Discipline requiring Annual Conferences to provide 
Counseling Elders for Probationers. Adjusting to changes in the mentoring process 
mandated by subsequent Disciplines, RIOM continues to provide an opportunity for 
probationary members to grow and find support as they live and learn through this 
opportunity of concentrated focus and reflection on ministerial theology and practice. Twenty 



399 



years of experience with this program have demonstrated the great value in preparing 
probationers for Full Conference Membership. 

The North Carolina Conference Board of Ordained Ministry uses a "Cluster Group 
Model" to meet the Disciplinary requirements for providing leadership and supervision for 
our probationary members. Probationers meet in small "cluster" groups throughout the 
probationary period. These groups are arranged, as often as possible, by geographical 
area in order to minimize travel time and facilitate greater fellowship. Cluster leaders are 
Elders who, by intention, are not members of the Board of Ordained Ministry. Recognizing 
that these cluster groups become an important source for collegiality and support, every 
effort is made to keep each participant in the same cluster throughout the probationary 
period. 

A candidate serving under the 2004 Discipline can complete his/her requirements for 
Deacon/or Elder in Full Connection within three (3) years by accepting a full-time 
appointment and participating in the RIOM process. The Book of Discipline provides a 
maximum time line of six (6) years to complete these requirements. Beginning last fall we 
increased the number of meetings, began using uniform resource materials and changed 
the focus for each year. Under this three-year probationary process, year one (Phase A) 
focuses on Spiritual Disciplines, while year two (Phase B) focuses on the leadership skills 
necessary for ordering the life of the Church. Year three (Phase C) is a time of preparation 
for written and oral interviews with the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry as candidates 
consider the Disciplinary questions for all who seek to come into Full Connection. 

During the RIOM process, certain candidates may be required by the Board of Ordained 
Ministry to spend an additional year or more "continuing" the probationary process. A 
continuance does not mean the probationer has failed or that he/she does not have the 
gifts and grace for ministry. This continuance is better understood as an opportunity for the 
probationer to continue to grow in grace as they seek to answer God's call to ordained 
ministry. 

In September of each year, Duke Divinity School sponsors a conference for candidates 
who are preparing for Full Connection interviews in the coming year. This annual seminar 
is led by faculty from the Divinity School and focuses on theology, worship, and pastoral 
concerns. Though not mandatory, we strongly recommend this time of reflection for all 
who are planning to come before the Board for Full Connection interviews. As a part of this 
seminar, participants are given the opportunity to meet with representatives from the Board 
of Ordained Ministry's interview committees to discuss their preparations for the coming 
year and to address questions they may have. Duke Divinity School also sponsors a 
seminar each October for candidates who are writing their first papers and seeking 
commissioning/probationary membership. 

The Residency in Ordained Ministry Committee would like to offer a word of sincere 
thanks to: Kong Namkung, Bob Wallace, Grace Hackney, Teresa Lawrence, Charles Moseley, 
Joy MacVane, Duke Lackey, Jim Reed, Jenny Wilson, Richard Greenway and Thomas 
Sweeley for their service as Cluster Group Leaders during the past conference year. These 
gifted servants have enabled our Annual Conference to offer candidates an enriching and 
worthwhile experience of growth and reflection. We, as a committee, are committed to 
helping candidates for Ordained Ministry in every way possible. 

The Committee wants to express their sincere thanks to the Dr. Paul Leeland, 
Director of Ministerial Relations and Assistant to the Bishop, and to Linda Bourey, Paul's 
assistant in the Office of Ministerial Relations for their wisdom and assistance.

Safe Sanctuaries 

At Annual Conference in June, 2005 the following was adopted by the Annual 
Conference: 

a. Conference and district program agencies which work with programs for 
children and youth, in covenant with the United Methodist Church, within the 
following policy, in order that the abuse of children and youth in all conference 
and district related settings may be prevented to the fullest extent possible: 
As a Christian community of faith, we pledge to conduct the ministry of the 
Gospel in a manner that assures the safety and spiritual growth of all children 
and youth and the adults who work with them. We will follow reasonable safety 
measures in the recruitment and selection of staff. We will implement prudent 
procedures of operation for all programs and events. We will educate those 
who work with children and youth in conference and district settings as to the 
use of all appropriate policies and procedures. We will have a clearly defined 
procedure for reporting suspected incidents of abuse that conform to the 
requirements of state law. 

b. Each and every local church will adopt and implement for themselves a safe 
sanctuary policy and procedures as outlined in the 1996 General Conference 
Resolution (Book of Resolutions of the United Methodist Church, 1996, pp. 
384-386) for use in their present and future ministry with children and youth. 

c. A Conference Safe Sanctuaries Committee , selected by the Conference 
Committee on Nominations, will provide oversight for the Conference safe 
sanctuary policy and procedures and resource the implementation of a safe 
sanctuary policy and procedures within local churches of the North Carolina 
Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. 

The Safe Sanctuaries Committee continues to give oversight to implementation of 
the Conference safe sanctuary policy and procedures and to provide resources to local 
churches. Annual review of charge conference reporting data for safe sanctuaries is 
conducted and follow-up and plans are made to resource local churches accordingly. In 
the fall of 2007, four regional workshops were held to give particular assistance to 
medium and smaller size local churches not yet making progress with safe 
sanctuaries. The sample policy statement and checklist for smaller churches was 
developed and made available through mail, the regional workshops and online at the 
website. The website resources continue to be updated for accessibility by local 
churches: www.nccumc.org/childrnmin/safesanctuaries1 .htm. 

During 2008, the Committee will focus on training local church leaders and 
providing resources in the area of cybersafety. Several members of the Committee 
attended a Safe Sanctuaries Cybersafety Conference in October, 2007 presented by the 
General Board of Discipleship of The United Methodist Church. After 2008 charge 
conference reporting data is reviewed, the Committee will make plans for what 
resources local churches need toward full implementation of safe sanctuaries policy 
and procedures.

Sexual Ethics Support Team 

The Board of Ordained Ministry was asked at the 1999 Annual Conference to implement 
a policy on professional sexual misconduct for the North Carolina Conference. Since this 
time the committee was organized and implemented the policy. The present committee is 
comprised of the following members: Tom Holtsclaw, Faye Rouse, T.R. Miller, Charles 
Astrike and Trish Archer. 



401 



The committee continued the training of sexual ethics support teams, persons 
available if the bishop wishes to deploy them to support persons who bring a complaint of 
sexual misconduct, to support persons against whom such complaints are made, and to 
support congregations which might be impacted by such circumstances. The careful 
training, coordinated by Mary Jane Wilson-Parsons, has prepared nine persons to serve 
as support team members. 

In response to the request of the Board of Ordained Ministry in 2000, Bishop Edwards 
appointed The Reverend Mary Jane Wilson-Parsons to a less-than-full-time extension 
ministry as Coordinator of the Sexual Ethics Concerns. Her responsibilities include: 1) 
Design and implement training for SEST; 2) Make recommendations to and serve on the 
subcommittee of the Board of Ordained Ministry as a consultant and advisor to policy 
decisions; 3) Coordinate each SEST response, providing supervision to team members 
as needed; 4) Be available to consult with the bishop or members of the Cabinet regarding 
any instance of alleged clergy misconduct; 5) Provide outreach and education to members 
of the conference regarding the Sexual Ethics Policy and the role of the response team; 6) 
Be responsible for staffing the toll-free Clergy Ethics Hotline. This ministry began July 1, 
2000, and is funded by the Board of Ordained Ministry. 

Moral responsibility underlines the importance of our attention to this area of our life 
together. The sub-committee invites you to review the Sexual Ethics Policy (pgs. 248-250 
of The Journal 1999 - note: will be reprinted in 2007 journal). The policy is also available 
on disk from the Conference Secretary's Office. Awareness of and fulfillment of that policy 
will strengthen our covenant and will offer new avenues for grace in our lives. 

The Sexual Ethics Support Team, in conjunction with the Bishop and the Cabinet, will 
provide opportunities for each clergy person to attend workshops that will provide continuing 
education to assist us in maintaining moral responsibility in our work as pastors. Each 
pastor will be notified in advance by his/her district superintendent regarding the location 
and dates for these meetings, and each pastor is required to attend. Opportunities for the 
laity to be involved either has been, or will be shared in the January Workshops, or at a time 
chosen by the district superintendent. 

Plans for workshops to continue from time to time in the future in order that pastors 
may be assisted in maintaining moral responsibility as ministries are shared for the 
cause of Christ. Every new minister to the North Carolina Conference is required to attend 
Orientation Workshops that also include a one-day training in this area as they begin their 
ministry.

United Methodist Youth 

"Believe It... Live It" is the theme for the year 2008 in Conference youth ministry. This 
theme is best expressed in the words of the Apostle Paul to Timothy: "Don't let anyone 
look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in 
speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." Our mission statement for Conference 
youth ministry is to walk with youth in their journey to know Christ by creating an 
environment in which youth can experience Christian communion to hear the Gospel, to 
know God's love and to respond in faith by loving and serving others... for in all of this we 
are making disciples of Jesus Christ. Through local church youth ministry with a variety 
of faces and programs and service projects; through districts offering opportunities for 
youth; with close to 8000 youth and adults participating in Conference youth events; and 
with the general church Division on Ministries with Young People, we indeed 
demonstrate believing and living as disciples of Jesus Christ. 

Youth (and adults) from across the Conference have participated in eight events 
over the year: Confirmation Celebration, Global Vision, Kaleidoscope, Rally Day, 
Appalachian Trail Hike, Summer Breakaway, ACS-Annual Conference Session for Youth, 



402 



and Pilgrimage. The Confirmation Celebration offered an experience of the 
connectional church and the covenant vow to support the church through prayers, 
presence, gifts and service to those in confirmation classes from local churches. 
Global Vision included a visit to Washington DC and New York City with a seminar to 
explore issues around faith in politics and faith in government policy. Kaleidoscope is a 
Conference youth event that offers a spiritual life retreat for middle school youth. Rally 
Day was a bright and sunny spring afternoon that celebrated the place of youth within 
the life of the church. The Appalachian Trail Hike proved to be a mountaintop experience 
of God for those involved. Summer Breakaway and ACS offered times of worship and 
sharing experiences of fellowship and faith in small and large groups. Pilgrimage (with 
close to 6000 in attendance from 300 or so churches) in the Crown Coliseum with 
challenging messages of God's call on our lives to be the body of Christ in the world 
from Andy Lambert and music by Chris Hughes and our own NC Conference youth will 
be a Pilgrimage not soon forgotten. 

Youth Service Fund continues to be an avenue of mission for United Methodist 
Youth. Grants to such ministries with youth as Positive Attitude Youth Center in 
Burlington, Zimbabwe Orphans Endeavor in Africa, Jubilee Project in Tennessee, 
Footprints Youth Mission Camp at MERCI, Carolina Cross Connection, a Heifer Project 
for deaf youth and children in Uganda, a rehabilitation and skills training project in 
Ghana, and the Society of St Andrew - Harvest of Hope program are possible only in as 
much as local churches support and contribute to Youth Service Fund. Youth Service 
Fund is money raised by youth and spent by youth to benefit youth. While the 
contributions to YSF at Conference youth events are very good, more support from local 
churches is needed to reach our goal each year of remaining a "Top 10 Conference" in 
the denomination and jurisdiction. 

We rejoice in the vision that local church youth ministries are living toward in areas 
of mission, service, study, outreach, fellowship and spiritual growth. We celebrate and 
give thanks to the Annual Conference and all the people within local churches giving 
support and encouragement to youth ministry. We pray for God's guidance and 
blessing as we seek to believe and live in Christ.

Worship, Commission on 

"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in 
truth." (John 4:24 KJV) The working of the Committee on Worship is Christ centered. 
The goal of the Committee on Worship continues to be one of service, planning, and 
precise execution of outlined liturgy for the Annual Conference. In a time with many 
foundational changes in worship, we continue to worship God in a Spirit of love, respect 
and obedience. The Committee is committed to Bishop Alfred Gwinn's effective 
leadership and concept of a healthy congregation. We are working diligently to ascribe 
to the seven pathways in all of our presentations during the Annual Conference. We 
work from the depth of our souls to be inclusive in all that we do and to represent, both 
visibly and non-visibly. 

Our 2007 Annual Conference Planning Committee met several times to discuss 
specific programs and presentations for the ensuing year. We were blessed again last 
year with the beautiful venue of Greenville Conventional Center. The center continues to 
pour out their heart to accommodate the large members of Annual Conference, with great 
hospitality. 



403 



The 2007 Annual Conference was a high spiritually rich experience, as we sojourned 
and entered into a harmonious and continuous celebration of Jesus Christ, who is our 
Lord and Savior, at the Greenville Conventional Center. A high time during Annual 
Conference last year was the election of clergy and laity to General Conference and 
Jurisdiction for 2008. It was very lengthy, but worth the time and effort that was much 
needed to secure the delegates. 

We experienced no real difficulty from our perspective. The Committee on Worship 
team was organized and ready to work on day one. Each assignment that was taken by 
each member of the team was administered with agape love and humility. You must 
understand that each program had to be taken with extreme patience and compassion, to 
the letter. I personally feel that the team went above and beyond the call of duty for the 
Annual Conference in this venue. More importantly, the Committee on Worship has an 
"open door policy". We love to help and we hope that you will come to the back of the stage 
to our location anytime you need assistance, direction, rest, or water. 

We are please to report that we have addressed the various requests that were 
brought to our attention at the last Annual Conference through the Spirit of Christ. We 
realize that we will never be able to please everyone at Annual Conference, but we do have 
an open mind to listen, and to try and implement new sound thoughts. Here are two 
questions that we need help from clergy and laity in order to share answers with the 
Committee on Worship. 1) How can we have an inclusive choir for each program/service? 
Next, 2) Are you willing to support/participate for the duration of Annual Conference? We 
understand that it is important to every race, gender, ages, etc... that they are represented 
in the various programs/services, but it all comes down to you. The Committee on 
Worship has been faithful in sharing with all churches the opportunities to share the 
responsibilities of being accountable in all aspects of the Annual Conference. The different 
music and singers included a multi-cultural and inclusive genre. The programs and 
speakers that were presented, such as the Ordination Service, the Holy Communion 
Service, the Memorial Service, the Love Feast Service, plus others, all showed a true 
example of having, working and planning with a deep dedication, conviction, and commitment 
to a policy of being an inclusive denominational church with open hearts, open minds, and 
open doors in harmony together for Christ Jesus. Again, we the Committee on Worship 
need your help to be most effective in all endeavors. 

In conclusion, the Committee on Worship is all about availability at the Annual 
Conference. We are always open to assist in any way that the Annual Conference Planning 
Committee recommends. We are pro-active to a changing culture in worship and music. 
Our goal is to function as servant leaders for Christ, working behind the scene-making 
things happen, positively in concert with the other committees. Therefore, the Committee 
on Worship is committed to giving and making each Annual Conference the best that it can 
be, in the name of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.

RESOURCE MINISTRIES CIRCLE 

As we prepare materials for this 2008 Book of Reports, "resources" is a subject on 
the mind of almost everyone. Our region is in the midst of a shortage of water. Eco- 
nomic trends are not as favorable as in the past. The costs of everything are increasing. 
Faithful stewardship of resources is a "must" in these times. Leaders in the ministry 
areas of the Resource Ministry Circle face the challenges of these days and times with 
faith in God. They are also tuning in to God's vision for our conference and leading us to 



404 



seize the opportunities that God is providing for healthy congregations and effective lay 
and clergy leaders in every place, making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transforma- 
tion of the world. Our greatest resource is our faithful people, serving God with dedica- 
tion, humility, and generosity. 

Alvin M. Home, Chairperson 

Disability - Concerns, Committee on 

More than 1,030,000 North Carolina residents have a hearing loss, the majority of 
whom are hard of hearing or late deafened. This can result in isolation and being 
disconnected from the life of the church. 

It is sobering to learn that 90% of church members unable to hear have or likely will 
drop out of church participation and some of those will find a church where they can 
hear. 

To visualize their presence, we suggest that you multiply 8% (.08) into your church 
membership. This is approximately the number of hard of hearing people in your 
congregation. Multiply .0053 into a church's membership and this will provide an 
estimated number of the late deafened people in your church. Realistically, most of your 
deaf members are not active in your church unless you provide an American Sign 
Language interpreter for all church events. The numbers for your church will increase 
as your congregation ages. 

Approximately, four in every 100 people who are deaf are estimated to be Christ's 
disciple. Hearing loss appears to neither be a national concern nor much of a church 
concern. Joan Black is a member of Cedar Grove UMC. She and her husband travel all 
over NC giving presentations. The place most people names as the place they have the 
most trouble hearing is the church! Also, there are 2000 congregations in America 
meeting in movie theaters which have built in, but unused infrared sound systems. 
Furthermore, by far the greatest number of requests to the FCC for permission to not 
use closed captioning come from Christians. 

Noise pollution, poor ear care, and other environmental factors are increasingly 
damaging people's ability to hear. Thus, more hearing problems are developing among 
people younger than 65. Our hearing will stay much healthier if we will wear ear 
protectors when mowing the grass, using the weed eater or chain saw, and blowing the 
leaves or snow. The media constantly bombards us with information about diabetes. 
What we don't hear is that it can also cause hearing loss due to poor blood flow to the 
auditory never and the brain. 

The rate of depression among those who are deaf or experience a significant 
hearing loss is five times the depression rate of society. Persons in this part of our 
population have twice the number of anxiety problems than the average citizen. 

Twenty-two years from now in 2030, North Carolina will have around 2.5 million persons 
with a hearing loss. To help churches reach them, the NC Conference United Methodist 
Committee on Disability Concerns sponsored "A Conference on Hearing Accessibility" 
on May 31 at Garner UMC in Garner from 10 am until 3 pm. 

This ecumenical educational and inspirational event sought to open the eyes and 
ears of leaders in the church as to how hearing loss relates to participation in church; to 
educate about practical solutions with an overview of assistive listening systems, visual 
technology; and to inspire as well as motivate church leaders with ideas for intentionally 



405 



extending "Radical Hospitality" to those with hearing loss by making it easier for us to 
attend services and participate in the life of the church. 

It featured Joan Black who has been a member of Hearing Loss Association of 
American since 1983 and has served on the national Board; Kay Free who directs the 
Western NC Conference UMC Deaf Ministry; Rev. Denise Waters who is a chaplain at 
Croasdaile Village; along with Rev. Dr. Robert Seymour who is pastor emeritus of Olin T. 
Binkley Baptist Church in Chapel Hill. He is the "poster boy" of clergy with hearing loss. 

We invite you to visit nccmentalhealth.org and our display table.

Equitable Compensation, Commission on 

The Book of Discipline mandates that "there shall be in each annual conference a 
commission on equitable compensation" (1J 624), whose purpose is "to support 
fulltime clergy serving as pastors in the charges of the annual conference" (11624. 2). 
Three broad areas of responsibility are outlined in 11624. 2, which are: "(a.) 
Recommending conference standards for pastoral support; (b.) administering funds to 
be used in base compensation supplementation; and (c.) providing counsel and 
advisory material on pastoral support to district superintendents and committees on 
pastor-parish relations." 

God calls persons to ministry to go into all the world, preaching, teaching and 
baptizing (Matthew 28:19), for without them the world would not have heard Christ 
preached (Romans 10:14). These are called to be stewards of the mysteries of God (1 
Corinthians 4:1). The Church lifts up some persons for the role of clergy and ordains 
these persons to the work of pastoral ministry to be servants of the servants of God. 

Those who are ordained to pastoral ministry answer affirmatively the historic 
question of John Wesley, (U330. 17) "Are you determined to employ all your time in the 
work of God?" For such a called, set apart and committed clergy, the Church assumes 
an obligation to plan adequate support. The Book of Discipline is clear that "the 
primary responsibility for payment of pastoral salaries remains with individual pastoral 
charges (11624. 5; see also 1J247.13). Pastoral charges carry a responsibility for clergy 
salaries as one expression of their missional and ministry presences in the 
community. We recognize that such a missional presence also includes faithful 
payment of apportionments in full as ministry beyond the local church. 

The Commission seeks equity and fairness for both pastors and local churches. 
Why should this commission be so concerned about equity and fairness? Our 
prayerful consideration of scriptural and historical foundations are found in the 
following: 

a. Jesus says, "the laborer deserves to be paid," (Luke 10:7) and Paul reminds 
us "Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of compensation, 
especially those who labor in preaching and teaching; for the scripture says, 
'"You shall not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,'" (1 Timothy 
5:17,18). 

b. Wesley was concerned that clergy have responsibility not to be "in debt so as 
to embarrass you in your work" (1J330.18), which implies that the Church has a 
responsibility that it neither lead its clergy into positions of embarrassing 
indebtedness, nor leave them there. 

c. The Great Commission to "go into all the world preaching, teaching and 
baptizing" brings with it a cost. Systems of clergy support which foster the use 



406 



of the right pastor in the right place, hold up the hope of seeing the Great 
Commission bear its promised fruit, 
d. The Commission on Equitable Compensation embraces the Great 

Commandment to "love our neighbors as we love ourselves" by desiring for 
each pastor what our members' desire for themselves - compensation 
adequate to free persons for the work of pastoral ministry. 
Through our prayers, working and considering together as both laity and clergy 
from across The N.C. Annual Conference, we make the following recommendations, 
which we believe will help us move toward fairness for both local churches and 
pastors as together we support ordained ministry in The N.C. Annual Conference. 

For the year 2008, the average full-time salary increase was approximately 5.58%. 
The CPI (Urban South) for the last twelve months ending December 2007 showed an 
increase of 2.9%. 

The Commission currently recommends a 3.9% ($1,513) increase in Salary and a 0% 
($0) increase in utilities, and a 33% ($1,000) increase in Travel. Including the 
recommended travel amount this represents a total increase of 2.8% for the year 2009. 
Our recommendation is based on several factors: (1) the average compensation from 
other conferences; (2) it more closely reflects the majority of salary increases for this 
conference; (3) shows concern for general economic trends. 
I. Recommended Schedule of Minimum Compensation for 2009: 
A. Salary Schedule 

We recommend that the student minimum salary be based on 65% of the 
minimum salary of full-time pastors. 

PASTORS UNDER FULL-TIME APPOINTMENT 2008 2009 

(Full Connection, Associate, Probationary, Local Pastor) 

Salary $38,806.00 $40,319.00 

Utilities $2.200.00 $ 2.200.00 

TOTAL $41,006.00 $42,519.00 

STUDENT PASTORS (Local Pastors or Conference Members) 

2008 2009 
Salary $25,224.00 $26,207.00 

Utilities $ 2.200.00 $ 2.200.00 

TOTAL $27,424.00 $28,407.00 

B. Travel Expense 

Although travel is reimbursed by the local charge as an item of pastoral expense, 
it is expected that each local charge would provide at least $4,000 for travel expense. 
The Commission encourages each charge to establish a plan to reimburse the pastor 
for all legitimate business mileage at the current rate established by the IRS. Where 
such a plan is established for reimbursement of business mileage, equitable 
compensation support shall not be affected by payment of travel expenses. However, 
where a reimbursement plan is not implemented and a travel allowance is given, any 
travel allowance in excess of $4,000 will result in a reduction of equitable 
compensation support. 

C. Pension Program 

Charges receiving Equitable Compensation Funds support are responsible for 
paying the total amount required for the Clergy Pension Plan and the Comprehensive 
Protection Plan (CPP) based on the pastor's cash base compensation (including 
funds from the Equitable Compensation Fund, Duke Endowment, and any other 
sources), and housing (percentage of cash base compensation designated by the 
General Board of Pension/Health Benefits or housing allowance, if provided in lieu of a 
parsonage). 



407 



II. Principles Governing Eligibility for Equitable Compensation Funds: 

The pastor's base compensation is the responsibility of the charge; therefore, each 
charge of The North Carolina Annual Conference should be so arranged as to be able 
to assume full salary support. The Commission urges each charge receiving 
Equitable Compensation Funds, its pastor, and the district superintendent responsible 
for that charge, to administer the affairs of that charge to the end that it may move as 
rapidly as possible toward total self-support. To enable the Annual Conference, the 
Commission and the district superintendents to carry on their cooperative efforts in 
understanding, in harmony, and for the greatest good for all concerned, the following 
principles and procedures are set forth: 

A Base Compensation: In considering the base compensation for the charge, 
all income, including base compensation, bonuses, and other benefits not 
specifically excluded, are included as base compensation in determining 
appropriations from the Equitable Compensation Fund. Base compensation 
support for retired supply, interim supply, part-time local pastors, less than 
full-time conference members, or associate pastors in other than larger 
parish arrangement of churches will not be available. Equitable 
Compensation funds shall not be used to supplement amounts above 
minimum full-time compensation. 

B. Annual Stewardship Campaign: Churches receiving Equitable 
Compensation Funds shall conduct an annual financial/stewardship 
campaign in the second year of receiving Equitable 

Compensation funds, to accurately gauge the level of financial support the 
local church can reasonably expect from its members. 

C. Any Equitable Compensation Fund supplement will be terminated 
immediately upon information that the pastor has taken full-time, secular 
employment. The supplement may be reinstated at the time the charge's 
appointed pastor returns to full-time or student status. Exceptions to this 
provision will be permitted only by the approval of the executive committee of 
the Commission on Equitable Compensation upon the recommendation of 
the district superintendent of the pastor seeking to be employed outside their 
ministerial responsibilities for emergency reasons. 

D. Disbursement of funds from Conference Treasurer's Office: Equitable 
Compensation Funds are to be sent to charges that have applied for their use 
to provide their pastor with the minimum base compensation established by 
the Annual Conference. The monthly base compensation supplement checks 
sent by the Conference Treasurer's office are to be deposited by the charge 
treasurer into the charge/church bank account. Checks shall not be endorsed 
nor cashed by the pastor. 

E. Application for funds: Churches or charges applying for Equitable 
Compensation Funds shall submit a request on the appropriate form, 
supplied by the district superintendent. The pastor, recording secretary of the 
charge conference, and the district superintendent, shall carefully analyze the 
request. The application form must have the signatures of the pastor, 
recording secretary of the charge conference, and the district superintendent 
affixed to it, and receive the approval of the charge conference. Applications 
received that are not completed in full are not eligible for consideration by 
the Commission until such time that they have been completed and 
resubmitted. 

F The Commission on Equitable Compensation will not fund any charge that is 
also receiving funds from The Emerging Church Salary Fund. The 
Commission on Equitable Compensation plans further consultation and 



408 



study with other Conference boards and agencies to seek ways to more 
adequately provide for the temporal needs of our pastors and churches. 

G In some instances, for missional reasons, consideration may be given to 
make funds available for the deacon in full connection when the primary 
appointment is to a local church. (Discipline 2004, paragraph 624.4) 
Policies Governing Use of Equitable Compensation Funds 

A Charges must be so arranged that no more than one third (1/3) of the total 
base compensation will come from the Equitable Compensation Fund on 
the first application of the charge. 

1 . Charges seeking more than one third (1/3) supplement shall provide 
specific information with their application, indicating the reasons for their 
inability to meet these guidelines. Information shall be made available to 
the Commission on Equitable Compensation and the district 
superintendent regarding the terms of Equitable Compensation support, 
giving the date of its inception and the present amount of support 

being received by the respective charges. 

2. When the division of a charge is desired, Equitable Compensation 
funds will be used only upon the recommendation of the Bishop and the 
approval of the cabinet. In the division of a charge in which one church 
seeks to become a station, it is recommended that such a church shall 
assume total responsibility for base compensation and its proportionate 
share of all apportionments. 

a. The remainder of the charge in such a division assumes full 
pastoral support and proportionate share of all apportionments. In 
no case will the Commission on Equitable Compensation provide 
more than one third (1/3) of the base compensation required for 
such a division. 

b. When there is a division of a charge forming one or more student 
appointments, each newly created charge shall pay initially two 
thirds (2/3) of the pastoral support established by the division. 

B. Annual Reduction and Length of Time for Support: 

1. The Commission further recommends that each charge which is 
receiving, or shall hereafter receive, Equitable Compensation Fund 
assistance, shall reduce this aid by at least twenty-five percent (25%) 
each year, until the charge has achieved full self-support in five (5) years. 

2. A minimum mandatory reduction often percent (10%) will be required 
each year. 

3. At the end of the fourth (4th) year an evaluation shall be conducted with 
the church and the district superintendent to evaluate the ability of the 
church to sustain a full time appointment in the future. 

4. After review by the cabinet and the Commission, an extension in the 
length of time for support can be granted for missional purposes. 

The Commission wants to be clear at this point that its intent in this 
recommendation is that each charge will accept in full whatever 
increases are made in the minimum base compensation for their pastor 
each year and receive at least ten percent (10%) less each year in 
assistance from Equitable Compensation Funds than granted the 
previous year. 

C. Merit Grant Supplemental to Base Compensation: Each full-time minister, 
associate member, or member in full connection of The N.C. Annual 
Conference, serving full time, and who, in the opinion of the cabinet is 
rendering unusually effective service, may apply for a grant in the amount of 



409 



$400, when such clergy person's salary and utilities are equal to the 
Conference minimum base compensation. 

1. This grant must be applied for on an annual basis, with an annual 
incremental increase of $400 per year, not to exceed $2,000 per year, 
for five years of full-time service. This grant may not exceed a lifetime 
maximum of $6,000.00. Special attention shall be given to 

ethnic pastors serving ethnic ministries (Book of Discipline 2004, 
paragraph 624.6). Said incremental increase is to be administered by 
the Commission on Equitable Compensation upon the recommendation 
of the cabinet, approval by the charge conference, and the district 
superintendent. 

2. Further, the local church shall be responsible for all Clergy Pension 
Plan and Comprehensive Protection Plan (CPP) payments on 
incremental increase. 

3. This policy does not restrict the Commission on Compensation, upon 

the recommendation of the cabinet, from making additional grants in 
extraordinary circumstances. 
D. Anticipated future funding needs: The cabinet shall report to the Executive 
Committee of the Commission the anticipated Equitable Compensation 
funding needs immediately after the first appointment session prior to Annual 
Conference. 
IV. The Commission reports that 16 charges received a total of $104,334.90 in 
compensation assistance in the year 2007. 

Johnnie Wright, Chairperson 

Incapacity, Joint Committee on 

The Joint Committee on Incapacity acts as the advocate for those pastors in the 
North Carolina Conference who are forced by physical or emotional incapacity to seek 
temporary or permanent relief from their appointment. The committee is given the 
responsibility to study the problems of incapacity within the Conference, to provide a 
continuing personal ministry to those who are incapacitated, and to make 
recommendations to the appropriate agencies of the Conference for each pastor or 
deacon seeking Incapacity Leave, including the source of their disability income. 
Persons interested in discovering more about the process of being granted Incapacity 
Leave can contact a district superintendent or the chair of the Joint Committee on 
Incapacity. 

The following recommendations are presented to the 2008 session of the North 
Carolina Annual Conference: 
I. General Policies 

A The Joint Committee on Incapacity, through the Conference Treasurer's 

Office, will make available upon request the necessary forms for any full time 
pastor or deacon to make application for Incapacity Leave. The applicant 
completes Form A, has his or her physician complete Form B, completes the 
applicant's portion of Form C, Unumreviews the claim and recommends a 
determination to the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits who 
retains the authority to approve or deny a claim. In all cases the applications 
must be completed by the pastor or deacon, the physician, chair of the Joint 
Committee on Incapacity, Conference benefits officer, and the district 
superintendent before the request for Incapacity Leave can be acted upon. 
Whenever possible incapacity requests are to be submitted ninety (90) 
days prior to Annual Conference except in life-threatening situations after that 
date, or when the disabling condition occurs after that date. Requests 



410 



presented before May 15 will be included in the Committee's report to the 
Annual Conference. 

B. Definition of Incapacity: For the first 24 months, an active participant will be 
considered incapacitated for the purposes of the Comprehensive Protection 
Plan or the Basic Protection Plan as of the date the Administrator determines, 
on the basis of medical evidence, that such active participant was unable to 
perform the usual and customary duties of his/her employment by reason of 
bodily injury, disease, or mental or emotional disease or disorder that will 
presumably last for at least six continuous months, exclusive of any incapacity 
resulting from service in the armed forces of any country, warfare, intentionally 
self-inflicted injury, or participation in any criminal or unlawful act. 

C. Definition of Clergy: Clergy in The United Methodist Church are individuals 
who serve as commissioned ministers, deacons, elders, and local pastors 
under appointment of a bishop (full- and part-time), who hold membership in 
an annual conference, and who are commissioned, ordained, or licensed. 

D. We recommend that pastors applying for Incapacity Leave be approved only 
when the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits grants their request 
for incapacity benefits through the Comprehensive Protection Plan. 

E. The Annual Conference and Conference Board of Pensions (effective January 
1, 2007), will fund pension contributions for the Clergy Retirement Security 
Program-Defined Benefit Plan in the required annual payment for normal cost 
as defined by the plan document and the General Board of Pension and 
Heath Benefits for all pastors receiving incapacity benefits from the 
Comprehensive Protection Plan. 

F. The Comprehensive Protection Plan (effective January 1, 2007), will fund 
contributions for the Comprehensive Protection Plan and the Clergy 
Retirement Security Program-Defined Contribution Plan which is 3% of plan 
compensation as defined by the plan document and the General Board of 
Pension and Heath Benefits for all pastors receiving incapacity benefits from 
the Comprehensive Protection Plan. 

G Hospital Insurance, and Life Insurance shall be paid by the Joint Committee 
on Incapacity both for those approved by the General Board of Pension and 
Health Benefits and those approved by the Joint Committee on Incapacity who 
are pastors receiving incapacity benefits from the Comprehensive Protection 
Plan according to Section II, below. 

H. Pastors on Incapacity Leave are reminded to investigate the penalties by the 
Social Security Administration if they do not elect to come under Medicare at 
age 65. Participation in Medicare Part A and B is required at the earliest 
possible date in order to receive full health insurance benefits. 

I. Effective July 1, 2008 we recommend that a lump sum grant of $3,500 
$4,300 be made at the beginning of Incapacity Leave. This grant will be 
available only one time in a pastor's years of service. 

J. The Joint Committee on Incapacity will review the progress of each pastor or 
deacon on Incapacity Leave at least annually. This review will include both 
recommendations from the pastor's physician and district superintendent as 
well as opportunities for continuing fellowship with the pastor to develop 
further possibilities of assistance in his/her disabled circumstances.

pastoral opportunities. 
Incapacity Policies Related to Life and Health Insurance 
A Insurance Coverage — Participants approved for Incapacity Leave must be 

covered under the Conference life and/or health insurance plan immediately 

preceding the approval date of Incapacity Leave in order to have life and/or 

health insurance coverage after the appointment of Incapacity Leave. 

B. Five Year Rule — Participants must be covered for five consecutive years 
immediately prior to the date of retirement in order to retain health insurance 
benefits after retirement. 

C. Life Insurance - 



412 



1. The life insurance premiums are paid by the Joint Committee on 
Incapacity. 

2. Current participants on Incapacity Leave who are enrolled in the life 
insurance are covered as follows: $25,000 life coverage, $10,000 on 
eligible dependents. 

D. Health Insurance - 

1. The health insurance premiums are paid in full by the Joint Committee on 
Incapacity until the participant is Medicare eligible due to age and eligible 
to retire. Upon reaching Medicare eligibility due to age and eligibility to 
retire, clergy receiving CPP benefits will receive the same contribution 
towards the health insurance premium as if they were retired. 

2. If the participant is enrolled in Medicare (part A and/or B) due to Incapacity, 
the Conference health insurance will coordinate benefits with Medicare 
as primary, the Conference plan as secondary. Family members (with no 
other coverage) will be covered as primary by the Conference health 
insurance plan. Participation in Medicare Part B is required at the earliest 
possible date in order to receive full health insurance benefits. 
Participants, who choose not to participate in Medicare Part B at that date, 
will receive the same contribution towards the health insurance premium 
as if they were retired. The Conference health insurance will coordinate 
with Medicare as primary, the Conference plan as secondary whenever 
possible.

proposals, will be notified of a $200 processing fee. This fee will help 
cover the costs of preparation and processing of the information necessary 
for proposals.

basis. The Insurance Committee encourages everyone to take advantage 
of this service in 2008.

B. Policy and Rules 
1. Effective January 1, 2004, the North Carolina Conference offered a 

Preferred Provider health insurance plan administered by Blue Cross Blue 
Shield of North Carolina. Benefits will include health, dental, pharmacy, 
mental health, Medical Reimbursement Accounts, Dependent Day Care 
Accounts, and life insurance. Details may be obtained by contacting the 
Benefits Manager in the Treasurer's Office, 800-849-4433. 

2. Open enrollment for insurance and annual election of benefits (Medical 
Reimbursement and Dependent Care Accounts) ends on November 30, 
for an effective date of the following January 1. Medical Reimbursement 
Accounts and Dependent Day Care Accounts must be re-established on 
an annual basis. If you do not claim these funds prior to March 31 (for the 
preceding year), these funds are forfeited. Participation in the Medical 
Reimbursement and Dependent Care accounts is contingent upon 
participation in the health insurance plan. 

3. A change of life circumstances (divorce, death, loss of spousal coverage) 
will allow a mid-year change. When there is a change in family status, or a 
change of address, it is the insured's responsibility to notify the 
Treasurer's Office within 30 days. The toll free number to the Methodist 
Building in Raleigh is 1-800-849-4433 where staff persons continue to 
provide personal attention to insurance matters. 

4. Effective January 1, 2004, health insurance for the subscriber may continue 
for 18 months after employment is terminated provided that full payment of 
the monthly premiums is made in advance. The continuation of life 
insurance beyond the termination of employment is not permitted by the 
life insurance carrier. 

5. Adding new family members must be completed within 30 days of the 
qualifying event. 

6. Participants applying at any time other than the initial enrollment period (30 
days from the date first eligible) would be subject to the one year pre- 
existing conditions clause. Submission of a valid Certificate of Insurance 
may eliminate or decrease this 12 month clause. The exception to 

414 



this rule would be possible by a change in life status causing loss of 
coverage: divorce, death of spouse, loss of spouse'-s employment, 
reduction of hours regarding spous-e's coverage. 

7. Effective January 1, 2004, the Conference health insurance plan will be the 
primary carrier for active participants who continue to work past the 
Medicare eligibility age, and are enrolled in the conference health plan. 

8. Retired participants should sign up for Medicare parts A and B upon 
reaching the Medicare eligibility age. The Medicare Companion Plan is the 
only plan offered to retirees past this age. Medicare becomes the primary 
payer, with the Conference plan as secondary. 

9. A participant must be covered in the Conference insurance for five 
consecutive and uninterrupted years immediately prior to retirement to 
retain health benefits after retirement. All participants enrolled on January 
1, 2001 will be prorated under this rule. 

10. Pre-Certification of all in-patient admissions is required. Effective January 
1, 2004, call Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC at 800-214-4844. Mental Health 
benefits should be pre-certified through Magellan Behavioral Health at 800- 
359-2422 

11. Denial of claims or incorrect processing of claims should be appealed 
through Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC. There are two levels of appeal. 

12. Payment for the church's portion of the insurance programs must be made 
by the church/charge treasurer. Personal checks cannot be accepted due 
to IRS regulations governing Section 125 cafeteria plans. The personal 
portion of insurance premiums should be withheld from the participant's 
salary by the salary-paying unit on a pre-tax basis. 

13. Premiums for health and life insurance may be paid in ADVANCE on a 
monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis. 

14. Lay persons or clergy on maternity/family medical leave may continue their 
insurance coverage, as long as the premiums are paid. 

15. The Insurance Committee may terminate the coverage for non-payment of 
premiums Insurance payments which are 60 days late (from the date of 
the bill) will result in termination of benefits. Termination will take place on 
the last day of the month in which the 60th day has occurred. Benefits may 
be reinstated without lapse in coverage if full payment is made within 30 
days of the termination date. Thereafter, insurance coverage may be 
reinstated upon full payment and coverage will be effective the first day of 
the following month. The one-year waiting period for pre-existing 
conditions will apply to all reinstatements where a lapse in coverage 
occurs. 

16. In case of termination of coverage, the church is responsible for the 
premium until the Treasurer's Office is notified in writing of such 
termination. 

IV. Statement of Intent 

The NC Annual Conference established a Group Health and Life Insurance Plan 
with the intent of providing coverage for the active and retired clergy. However, the Annual 
Conference reserves the right to terminate the health and life contracts, in whole or in 
part, at any time. The Annual Conference, at any time or from time to time, may amend 
any or all of the provisions of the health or life plan without the consent of individual 
participants.

4. Flexible Spending Accounts are not available to terminated participants, as 
they are no longer receiving salary from which to with-hold these funds. 
Funds already contributed may be claimed by the participant. 

J. Open Enrollment 

1. Open Enrollment is held each year from November 1 through November 
30. 

2. During Open Enrollment, an active employee or appointee may enroll in the 
Conference insurance plan. 

3. Flexible Spending Accounts must be established for the upcoming year 
during Open Enrollment. If the participant does not establish a new 
account during each Open Enrollment, they cannot participate in the 
Flexible Spending Accounts for the upcoming year. 

K. The Insurance Committee continues to explore eligibility options for future benefit 
plans and questions of church participation. 

L. Participants enrolled in the Conference health and life insurance plans may 

continue to be enrolled in the Conference benefits as long as they are Episcopally 
appointed, employed as lay staff, meet the qualifications of Continuation as defined 
in Section G above, and meet the required eligibility rules and regulations. 

VI. Historically, the Insurance Committee has developed rates based on maximum 
actuarially projected claims. The Insurance Committee may use funds in excess of 
the plan's operational needs to fund post retirement benefits. 

VII. The Insurance Committee strives diligently to present the best possible health and 
life insurance coverage available to the North Carolina Annual Conference. Careful 
consideration is given to benefits and rates that are proposed each year.

VIII. Recommendations regarding service credit: 

A The Conference Board of Pension voted at its October 30, 2007 meeting to 
grant pension credit for the time period September 1, 1968 through May 31, 
1969 for a total of nine (9) months of service for Dr. William C. Simpson. 

B. The Conference Board of Pension voted at its February 21, 2008 meeting to 
grant Vi year pension credit for the time period 1975 through 1976 as a 
Student Local Pastor for S. Dufrene Cummings. 

IX. The Board of Pension recommends that funds received from the United Methodist 
Publishing House be contributed towards the Central Conference Pension 
Initiative. 

Report B - Recommendations for the Pension Program and Post Retirement Benefits 
I. Funding Plan for Supplement One of the Clergy Retirement Security Program 
A Defined Plan Benefits: Supplement One of the Clergy Retirement Security 
Program (Pre-82 Plan) provides defined benefit pension benefits to participat- 
ing retired clergy for all service rendered to the North Carolina Conference 
through December 31, 1981. This plan will continue until all pastors with past 
service benefits and their surviving spouses are deceased and is adminis 
tered by the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits (GBOPHB). 
B. Current Past Service Rate: For many years, the Book of Discipline has 
defined Pre-82 Plan defined benefits as a fixed payment per year of past 
service. This fixed payment is the Past Service Rate (PSR). The benefit 
goal is stated to be a PSR of 1% of the Conference Average Compensation 



423 



(CAC). Participation in the Clergy Retirement Security Program requires that 
an Annual Conference maintain its PSR to at least 0.9% of the CAC. The 2008 
CAC for the North Carolina Conference is $62,997. The 2008 PSR is $572 or 
0.91% of the CAC. Our Conference Board would like to maintain a PSR of at 
least 0.9% of CAC. North Carolina CAC has increased by approximately 4.5% 
over the past 10 years. We estimate future PSR increases to average 
approximately 5.0% each year. 

C. Funded Status: The Conference is required to fund all future benefits of the 
Pre-82 Plan by December 31, 2021. Funded Status (previously called un 
funded liability) is the difference of the current assets held by the 
GBOPHB for future benefits of North Carolina participants and the total 
present value of all future benefits to be paid under the plan at the approved 
PSR. The GBOPHB values assets and liabilities of the plan every two 
years and projects data to current years based on the increase in PSR and 
investment earnings. For the 2008 Funding Plan, GBOPHB and the 
Conference use an assumed earnings rate of 7.0%. 

The General Board of Pension and Health Benefits has determined that the 
portion of the pre-82 plan liability attributable to North Carolina Annual 
Conference is $52,830,240 with a 5.0% PSR increase assumption 
based on a 2008 PSR of $572. Plan funds currently held with the General 
Board of Pension and Health Benefits have a value of $19,903,170 as of 
January 1, 2006 (for 2008 funding plan). 

The difference between the total plan liability and current plan funding is 
$32,927,070. This represents the unfunded plan liability and will be provided 
through apportionments and non-plan funds that are held in various 
investment sources. The Conference intends for contributions to be 
made within the 14-year period, ending December 31, 2021. The minimum 
annual contribution due December 31, 2008 is currently estimated to be 
$2,501,141. 

D. Funding Plan for 2008: Our conference pays for plan benefits through several 
potential funding sources. Both the interest and principal of non-plan funds 
may be available for retirement funding needs. Below is a description of the 
non-plan assets available to pay the present value of future contributions. 
Our Conference expects to utilize annual apportionments from the local 
churches as the primary source for pre-82 pension funding. Our Conference 
expects to receive annual apportionments in an amount of $3,300,000 for 
2008, $3,300,000 for 2009, increasing $200,000 each year through 2013. 
Apportionments of $4,600,000 are expected for the year 2014, and $3,500,000 
are expected for 2015 and $3,000,000 for the year 2016. The present value of 
the expected apportionments is $25,412,046. This apportionment funding 
wasoriginally approved by the 1991 Annual Conference. 

The Conference maintains a General Deposit Account with the General Board 
of Pension and Health Benefits that has a value of $13,429,147 as of January 
1, 2008. Both the interest and principal from this account are available to meet 
future contribution requirements. 

The Conference maintains and manages various liquid asset accounts that 
are available for Supplement One funding. The current value of these ac- 
counts are $1 ,948,346 as of January 1 , 2008. Both the interest and 
principal from these sources are available to meet future contribution require 
ments. 

The Superannuate Endowment fund has a value of $370,865 as of January 1 , 
2008. All of it is available except for the original balance of $87,195.39, from 
which interest only is available. 



424 



The 2008 funding plan as of January 1, 2006 is summarized below: 
Supplement One Liability: 

Assuming A PSR Increase of 5.0% $(52,830,240) 

Current Plan Funding as of 1/1/06 19,903,170 

Unfunded Plan Liability as of 1/1/06 $(32,927,070) 

Projected Unfunded Plan Liability as of 1/1/08 $(28,819,717) 

Additional Plan Assets: 

Present Value of Future Apportionments $25,412,046 

General Deposit Account (GBOPHB) 13,429,147 

Conference Managed Liquid Asset Accounts 1,948,346 

Conference Superannuate Endowment Fund (GBOPHB) 370,865 

Total Additional Plan Assets $41,160,404 

Proposed Past Service Rate: The 2009 CAC for the North Carolina Conference is 
$65,199. We propose that the past service rate beginning January 1, 2008 be 
increased to $601 per service year, or 0.95% of the CAC. Assuming 5% future 
PSR increases and 7.0% investment earnings, this increase creates an unfunded 
liability of $32,927,070. The minimum annual contribution due December 31, 2009 
is currently estimated to be $2,328,168. 

Ministerial Pension Plan (MPP) (effective through December 31, 2006) 
Guidelines for the Ministerial Pension Plan and the Comprehensive Protection Plan 
are contained in the plan document. A copy of the summary plan document is 
available on request by contacting pension services in the treasurer's office. 
A Service on and after January 1, 1982 through December 31, 2006 was funded 
on a defined contribution basis. This plan is basically deferred salary, and 
creates no unfunded liability because it builds an account of funds for a 
specific minister as his/her salary is paid. 

B. These contributions were placed in the individual minister's Church Account 
to be available for benefits when the minister becomes eligible for payment in 
the retired relationship. 

C. Each minister who is eligible for benefits will be required to designate 
beneficiaries for the benefits he/she is qualified to receive. 

Clergy Retirement Security Program (CRSP) (Effective January 1, 2007) 
Guidelines for the Clergy Retirement Security Program and the Comprehensive 
Protection Plan are contained in the plan document. A copy of the summary plan 
document is available on request by contacting pension servicesin the treasurer's 
office. Service on and after January 1, 2007 will be funded on a combined defined 
contribution/defined benefit basis. 
A Defined Benefit 

1. The Defined Benefit will be 1.25% of the Denominational Average 
Compensation (DAC) according to the plan document. 

2. The Defined Benefit portion will be funded based on a percentage of Plan 
Compensation calculated on a yearly basis using up to the normal cost 
rate provided by the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits 
multiplied by the annual interest rate. The current assumed interest rate 
is 7.0%. Therefore, the funding percentage rate for 2008 is 10.4% of Plan 
Compensation. 

B. Defined Contribution 

1. Benefits will be provided based on the participants account balance at 
their actual retirement date. 

2. The Defined Contribution portion funding is based on three percent (3%) 
of Plan Compensation. 

C. Plan Compensation is calculated by the GBOPHB according to the plan 



425 



426 



document: 

1. Vouchered travel and utilities paid directly to utility companies are not 
used in Plan Compensation calculations since this is considered by the 
General Board of Pension and Health Benefits to be local church 
expense. 

2. Clergy couples housing: 

a. When only one of the spouses is furnished a parsonage, the one 
furnished the parsonage includes the housing allowance. 

b. When one spouse is furnished the parsonage and the other a cash 
allowance, the one furnished the parsonage will use the 25% housing 
allowance and the other will report the actual cash housing paid. 

c. When two parsonages are furnished each spouse claims a housing 
allowance. 

d. When neither is furnished a parsonage, the actual cash housing 
allowance may be counted by the person/or persons receiving the 
allowance. 

3. In accordance with the plan document, the housing allowance for those 
furnished housing is 25% times the cash salary. 

4. Those furnished a cash housing allowance will report the actual amount 
in accordance with the plan document. 

D. The Clergy Retirement Security Program contribution from the local church is 
to be paid monthly by the Church or Charge Treasurer to the Conference 
Treasurer's Office. 

E. The Defined Contribution portions are placed in the individual minister's 
Church Account to be available for benefits when the minister becomes 
eligible for payment in the retired relationship. 

F. Each minister who is eligible for benefits will be required to designate 
beneficiaries for the benefits he/she is qualified to receive. 

IV. Comprehensive Protection Plan (CPP) 

A This part of the program contains provisions for a death benefit and disability 
income. In addition to the provisions of a death benefit for the pastor, there is 
a death benefit on the life of the spouse and dependent children under age 
18 or who are dependent because of disability. The Comprehensive 
Protection Plan also includes educational benefits for the children of a 
deceased minister. This part of the plan is only available to those ministers 
covered under the CPP, whose charges are paying at least minimum full-time 
salary. 

1. Death Benefits provide $50,000.00 as the benefit paid on the death of an 
eligible active participant. Upon retirement at any age, death benefits drop 
to $16,813.20 for the year 2008 and $17,467.80 for 2009. This is 30% of 
the DAC. 

2. Effective January 1, 2002, the disability benefit equals 70% of plan 
compensation, with plan compensationcapped at 200% of the DAC. (The 
DAC for 2008 is $56,044.00 and for 2009 is $58,226.00) The disability 
benefit is reduced by any disability benefits payable under the Social 
Security Act. This revised benefit applies only to eligible clergy whose 
disability effective date, as determined by the General Board of 
Pension and Health Benefits, is on or after January 1, 2002. 

3. The Comprehensive Protection Plan contribution from the local church is 
to be paid monthly by the Church or Charge Treasurer to the Conference 
Treasurer's Office. (Effective November 1, 2004) 

4. Pastors who have been approved for a leave of absence for military 
service and who were enrolled in the CPP prior to the date of their leave 
will continue to be enrolled in the CPP under optional Conference 



enrollment. 
B. Effective January 1, 2007, the cost of the Comprehensive Protection Plan 
(CPP) will be funded by billing up to the calculated percentage to fund the CPP 
each year using the rate required by the General Board of Pension. 
For 2008 the cost is a total of 3% of the actual Plan Compensation up to 
200% of the Denominational Average Compensation (DAC). The pastor shall 
be required to pay 1% of Plan Compensation (up to 1% of 200% of DAC) on 
an after tax basis and the church or charge shall pay 2% of the Plan Compen 
sation (up to 2% of 200% of DAC). ^1 506. 19 in The Book of Discipline 2004.

C. Retirement prior to January 1, 2004 

Clergy persons who retire prior to January 1, 2004 from the North Carolina 
Annual Conference will be subject to the current rate policy as outlined below. 
Effective January 1, 2004, there will be a minimum monthly contribution of $10 
per participant (for all surviving dependents and retirees with a clergy retire- 
ment date prior to January 1, 2004). The following policies apply: 

1. Before the retired clergy person and/or spouse reach the age of Medicare 
eligibility (currently 65 years of age), the retired clergy person will pay the 
amount of premium that he/she paid in the year in which he/she retires. 
The Conference Board of Pensions will pay the difference between the 
clergy person's payment and the costs of his/her health insurance. The 
retired clergy person must continue to pay the amount of premium that 
he/she paid in the year of retirement until both the retired clergy person 
and his/her spouse reach the age of Medicare eligibility. Billings will be 
made monthly from the Treasurer's Office.

individual for the purposes of health insurance, wishes at the time of 
retirement to add family members to his/her health care plan, he/ 

she must pay the premium applicable to that type of coverage for the year 
in which he/she retired. The retired clergy person must continue to pay 



428 



that amount of premium until both the retired clergy person and his/her 
spouse reach the age of Medicare eligibility. 

A clergy person who retires from the North Carolina Annual Conference 
with less than twenty (20) full-time years of earned pension credit in the 
North Carolina Annual Conference may receive life and health insurance 
benefits when the clergy person attains age 62 and receives pension 
benefits or retires with thirty-five (35) years of service and receives 
pension benefits provided at least twenty of the thirty-five years of pension 
credit is in the North Carolina Annual Conference. Retired clergy persons 
and/or dependents with less than twenty years of earned pension credit in 
the North Carolina Annual Conference will be responsible for the monthly 
insurance premiums as described in #1 above, with the remaining 
monthly portion shared by the retired clergy person and/or dependents 
and the Conference Board of Pensions, based on the following formula:

H. Life Insurance - A clergy person must have been covered under the conference 
active life insurance plan in order to retain life insurance benefits after retirement. 
The Board of Pensions does not provide life insurance for dependents of retired 
clergy. 

I. Clergy Couples Insurance 

1. When one member of a clergy couple retires, medical and life insurance 
will be paid for the retiree according to the schedules and rules previ- 
ously listed. 

2. Health insurance will be provided for the spouse and eligible dependents 
of the retired clergy partner according to the rules and schedules previ 
ously listed. 

J. Surviving Spouses 

Surviving spouses of active participants must be enrolled in the health 

insurance plan at the time of the participant's death in order to receive health 

insurance benefits under the current health insurance plan. 

Premiums will be determined by the retirement rules in place on the date of 

death. 

1. When surviving spouses are employed and provided health insurance by 
their employer, the plan of the Board of Pension will be the secondary 
carrier. 

2. If the surviving spouse remarries, the conference health insurance will 
terminate. Future benefits under the conference health insurance plan 
are waived. 

3. Surviving spouses of retired clergy must be enrolled in the health 
insurance plan at the time of the retired clergy's death in order to receive 
health insurance benefits under the current health insurance plan. 

a. Surviving spouses currently enrolled who married the clergy person 
after the clergy person's retirement, can remain covered by the health 
insurance plan. The Board of Pensions grants a flat rate of 
$150.00 monthly towards the cost of the surviving spouse's cover 
age. The remaining premium will be the responsibility of the 
surviving spouse. 

b. Surviving spouses of retired clergy who married the clergy person 
prior to the clergy person's retirement are subject to the payment 
schedule applicable prior to the death of the clergy person. 

c. Effective January 1, 2001 retired clergy persons may not add new 
dependents to the health insurance plan. 

VII. Intent 

The North Carolina Annual Conference established health, dental, and life 



432 



insurance plans with the intent of providing coverage for the active and retired pastors. 
However, the Annual Conference reserves the right to terminate the health, dental, and 
life contracts, in whole or in part, at any time. The Annual Conference, at any 
time or from time to time, may amend any or all of the provisions of the health or life 
plans without the consent of the individual participants. 

VIII. Dental Insurance 

The Board of Pensions recommends that retired ministers covered under the 
health insurance plan have dental insurance. Dental benefits became available 
on July 1, 1987. 

IX. Maximum Lifetime Benefit Under the Medicare Companion Plan. The lifetime 
maximum under the current Medicare Companion Plan is $2,000,000 for each 
participant. 

X Special Provisions 

The North Carolina Annual Conference Board of Pensions is hereby authorized, at 
its discretion, to arrange with the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits 
for active participation in the CRSP and/or CPP by persons who are eligible under 
special rules but not automatically included as active participants. (CRSP Plan 
Document Section 3.3 and CPP Plan Document Section 3.2.) 
XI. Conclusion 

Our constant aim is to provide our retired families with their needs for an adequate 
income to purchase essentials for living as well as to insure adequate care in 
case of illness. To these ends our recommendations are directed, and their 
satisfaction is found in the acceptance of the North Carolina Conference and its 
membership. 

Report C - Housing Exclusion Allowance (For Income Tax Purposes Only) 
Resolutions Relating to Rental/Housing Allowances for Retired or Disabled 
Clergypersons of the North Carolina Conference 

The North Carolina Conference (the "Conference") adopts the following resolu- 
tions relating to rental/housing allowances for active, retired, or disabled 
clergypersons of the Conference: 

WHEREAS, the religious denomination known as The United Methodist 
Church (the "Church"), of which this Conference is a part, has in the past func- 
tioned and continues to function through ministers of the gospel (within the 
meaning of Internal Revenue Code section 107) who were or are duly ordained, 
commissioned, or licensed ministers of the Church ("Clergypersons"); 

WHEREAS, the practice of the Church and of this Conference was and is to 
provide active Clergypersons with a parsonage or a rental/housing allowance as 
part of their gross compensation; 

WHEREAS, pensions or other amounts paid to active, retired, and disabled 
Clergypersons are considered to be deferred compensation and are paid to 
active, retired, and disabled Clergypersons in consideration of previous 
active service; and 

WHEREAS, the Internal Revenue Service has recognized the Conference (or 
its predecessors) as the appropriate organization to designate a rental/housing 
allowance for Clergypersons who are or were members of this Conference and are 
eligible to receive such deferred compensation; 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: 

1. THAT an amount equal to 100% of the pension or disability payments 
received from plans authorized under The Book of Discipline of The 
United Methodist Church (the "Discipline"), which includes all 
such payments from the General Board of Pension and Health 
Benefits ("GBOPHB"), any amounts received from the Minister's 
Transition Fund (MTF) and including amounts received in this respect 



433 



from the Duke Endowment, during the year 2008 and 2009 by each 
active, retired, or disabledClergyperson who is or was a member of 
the Conference, or its predecessors, be and hereby is designated as 
a rental/housing allowance for each such Clergyperson; and 
2. THAT the pension or disability payments to which this rental/housing 
allowance applies will be any pension or disability payments from 
plans, annuities, or funds authorized under the Discipline, including 
such payments from the GBOPHB and from a commercial annuity 
company that provides an annuity arising from benefits accrued 
under a GBOPHB plan, annuity, or fund authorized under the Disci 
pline, that result from any service a Clergyperson rendered to this 
Conference or that an active, a retired, or a disabled Clergyperson of 
this Conference rendered to any local church, annual conference of 
the Church, general agency of the Church, other institution of the 
Church, former denomination that is now a part of the Church, or any 
other employer that employed the Clergyperson to perform services 
related to the ministry of the Church, or its predecessors, and that 
elected to make contributions to, or accrue a benefit under, such a 
plan, annuity, or fund for such active, retired, or disabled 
Clergyperson's pension or disability as part of his or her gross compen- 
sation. 
NOTE: The rental/housing allowance that may be excluded from a 
Clergyperson's gross income in any year for federal income tax purposes is 
limited under Internal Revenue Code section 107(2) and regulations 
thereunder to the least of: (1) the amount of the rental/housing allowance 
designated by the Clergyperson's employer or other appropriate body of the 
Church (such as this Conference in the foregoing resolutions) for such year; 
(2) the amount actually expended by the Clergyperson to rent or provide a 
home in such year; or (3) the fair rental value of the home, including furnish- 
ings and appurtenances (such as a garage), plus the cost of utilities in such 
year. As specified in Rev. Rul. 71 280, 1971 C.B.92, "the only amount that will 
qualify for exclusion under section 107(2) of the Code as 'rental allowance' is 
an amount equal to the fair rental value of the home, including furnishings and 
appurtenances such as a garage, plus the cost of utilities." Beginning 
in 1984, there is no longer a sick pay or disability income exclusion available 
with respect to disability benefit payments. Therefore, the full amount of 
disability benefit payments will be taxable income to the recipient beginning in 
1984. 

Please Note: There is no place on your 1040 Tax Form to list this Housing 
Exclusion. The General Board of Pension and Health Benefits has provided a 

sample statement to be used: "I received $ from the General 

Board of Pension and Health Benefits, Incorporated in Missouri; and/or from a 
commercial annuity company that provides an annuity arising from benefits 
accrued under a GBOPHB plan, annuity, or fund authorized under the Disci 

pline and $ from the Duke Endowment (total $ ) 

as reported on the attached 1099 - R's. I did not include that amount on Line 

16b because $ * has been excluded under provisions of IRC 

Section 107 of the Internal Revenue Code as a rental allowance exclusion. As 
a retired clergyperson, I am entitled to take this rental allowance exclusion." 
(In this blank put the least of the 3 amounts on your Housing Exclusion 
Worksheet.) 

Attach this note to your 1099-R forms.

Report D - Ministers' Transition Fund 

I. The Principles of the Fund - The Ministers' Transition Fund of the North Carolina 
Conference of The United Methodist Church (the "Fund") was established effective 
November 20, 1937, to assist the minister to more easily make the transition from 
the active relationship in which a furnished parsonage has usually been 
provided, to the retired relationship in which the minister provides his or her 
housing. The Fund is established by apportionments to each local church in the 
Outreach Ministries-Fair Share Apportionments and by assessments to each 
minister who has membership in the Fund. Since all churches contribute to this 
Fund, it is the desire of the North Carolina Annual Conference of The United 
Methodist Church that all ministers participate in the Fund. The Conference does 
not interpret the churches' support of the Ministers' Transition Fund as an addi 
tional benefit for their ministers, but as a benefit for all ministers of the Conference. 
Therefore, the only funds to which a minister can make personal claim are those 
that he or she contributed to the Fund. 

The Conference vigorously emphasizes that the purpose of this Fund is to assist 
the minister's retirement transition and not to be an emergency fund available for 
any other purpose. All participant elections available shall be irrevocable. The 
Fund is intended to be a church plan within the meaning of section 414(e) of the 
Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") which has not made the 
election under section 410(d) of the Code and is also intended to meet the 
requirements of a retirement income account under section 403(b)(9) of the Code. 
The Plan shall be interpreted, wherever possible, to comply with the applicable 
terms of the Code and all applicable formal regulations and rulings issued under 
the Code. 

II. The Conference Treasurer - The Treasurer of the North Carolina Conference (the 
"Conference Treasurer") shall serve as Treasurer and custodian of this Fund. He 
or she shall promote this work, receive funds from pastors and charges, and keep 
permanent records of assessments received and benefits paid. 

III. Eligibility for Membership - Membership in this Fund is not mandatory. Each 
ministerial member of the North Carolina Annual Conference (associate, full, 
probationary, or full-time local pastor) who is serving full time in a charge or as a 
district superintendent, a Conference ministerial staff person, or others who are 
appointed to serve at a North Carolina Annual Conference Institution (Methodist 
Retirement Home, Inc.; Methodist Home for Children, Inc.; Louisburg College; 
Methodist College; North Carolina Wesleyan College) or other Episcopal 
appointment of the North Carolina Annual Conference shall be eligible to join. 

In order to remain an active, participating member, the ministerial member of the 
North Carolina Annual Conference (associate, full, probationary, or full-time local 
pastor) must continue to serve full time in a charge or other appointment. A full- 
time local pastor may continue as a member of the Fund only during the time he 
or she is serving under episcopal appointment. Students under episcopal 
appointment who have previously served full time and who intend to return to full 
time service are eligible to continue. Those ministerial members on disability leave, 
leave of absence, or Conference members with less than full time service, may 
continue to be active, participating members by meeting the provisions discussed 
hereafter. 

Ministerial members who transfer into the Conference or new ministers receiving 
appointments for the first time are eligible to join the Fund in January of the year 
following the Annual Conference session in which their credentials were recog- 
nized. Ministers in these categories applying for membership will be assessed on 
the basis of their total salary and utility allowances for the six months between July 
1 and December 31 computed to a twelve-month amount. 
Each new member of the Fund shall file an application form. Upon filing of 



435 



application for membership and paying the recommended assessment for one 

year, his or her membership becomes effective. The deadline for enrollment for all 

ministers is January 31 of each year. 
IV. Apportionments and Assessments 

A Conference Contributions — Funds shall be placed in the Conference 
budget annually equal to an amount of one percent (1%) of the total salaries 
and utilities paid to all participating pastors and associates of the Conference 
based upon the Conference Journal figures for the year preceding the year in 
which the budget request is made to the Annual Conference. This budgeted 
amount will be apportioned to charges on the same basis as all other 
Conference budget items, and this amount shall become part of the Fund. 

B. Minister Contributions - Each minister in a pastoral appointment who 
participates in the Fund shall be assessed and pay into the Fund on an after- 
tax basis one percent (1%) of all salary and utility allowances he or she 
receives each year from the charge he or she is serving and/or Conference 
sources. (Salary also includes Equitable Salary Fund payments, Duke 
Endowment Funds, and missionary sources.) Such contributions may be 
paid in monthly installments by check or electronic bank drafts. 

C. Council on Finance and Administration Contributions - The Council on 
Finance and Administration shall make provision for payment into the Fund an 
amount equal to one percent (1%) of salary and utility allowances usually paid 
by the charge for district superintendents and ministers appointed as Confer 
ence staff. 

D. District Superintendent and Conference Ministerial Staff Contributions - 
District superintendents and Conference ministerial staff shall be assessed 
and pay into the Fund on an after-tax basis one percent (1%) of their salary 
and utility allowances. 

E. All Other Ministers - All other ministers who participate in the Fund shall be 
assessed and pay into the Fund on an after-tax basis a sum equivalent to two 
percent (2%) of their annual salary and utility allowances or two percent (2%) of 
the Conference Average Salary, whichever is greater. 

V Deadline For Receipt of Assessment - The plan (fiscal) year of the Ministers' 
Transition Fund shall be the same as that of the Annual Conference fiscal year, 
January 1 through December 31. No later than November 1 of each year, the 
Conference Treasurer shall notify all members their assessment is due. Each 
member of the Fund shall submit payment for the required assessment no later 
than January 31 of each year. Such contributions may be paid in monthly install- 
ments by check or electronic bank drafts. Assessments received after January 31 
will be returned to the minister. If he or she has been a member less than ten (10) 
years, this lack of payment extends the period for one additional year before 
dividends can be received. If the minister has been a member over ten (10) years, 
he or she will receive no dividends for the year involving lack of payment. If any 
member of the Fund fails to pay his or her required assessment for three con 
secutive years, he or she shall be required to withdraw from membership in the 
Fund. 

VI. Base Benefits - Base benefits shall be paid to retired members of the Transition 
Fund as follows: 

If retired at the end of one year of membership $200.00 

If retired at the end of two years of membership 300.00

VII. Allocation of Dividends After Ten Years of Membership -After ten years of 
membership, and beginning with the eleventh year, the base benefit to be paid is 
increased by dividends credited to the members account. 

Any funds, except as provided below, including apportionments, assessments, 
forfeitures and earnings thereon, remaining after benefits have been paid to eligible 
members for the plan year shall be divided into equal parts, in the case of members 
who remained members through the year, and portions of such equal parts in the 
case of members who have retired during the year and who are entitled to a part-year 
allocation, as described below, and credited to the accounts of those who have been 
participating members for more than ten years and are not in arrears for the previous 
year. 

A reserve equal to ten percent of the members' payments and dividend fund 
balances as of December 31 each year shall be maintained. Unrealized gains on 
investments shall be reserved and are not generally eligible to be distributed as 
annual dividends. The Hearing Committee may supplement the annual dividend from 
such reserves to maintain the declared dividend in an amount consistent with previous 
year levels when such action is deemed appropriate considering current investment 
returns and current economic conditions. The purpose of maintaining these reserves 
is to insulate the members in any year from market fluctuations and preserve the ability 
of the fund to consistently provide for housing needs in their retirement. 

In the event a member retires during a year after completing ten years of 
membership, such member may elect to submit payment to the Fund of that portion of 
their assessment for the year equal to the product of (1) the assessment the member 
would have paid had the member not retired, and (2) a fraction, the numerator of which 
is the number of whole months in the year prior to the date the member retires, and the 
denominator of which is 12. If a member pays the assessment described in the 
preceding sentence, the account of the member shall also receive as an allocation of 
dividends for such year an amount equal to the product of (1) the amount of dividends 
which would be credited to the account of such member had the member not retired 
during such year, and (2) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of whole 
months in the year prior to the date the member retires, and the denominator of which 
is 12. 

VIII. Limitations on Contributions Pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code 

A In General - The contributions for any calendar year allocated to a member's 



437 



account under Articles VI and VII on behalf of a member under all Qualifying 
Retirement Plans in which the member participates shall not exceed the 
member's Limit on Annual Additions as determined in subsection B of this 
Article VIII. The provisions of this Article VIII are intended to provide the limit on 
the amount of contributions to this Fund which are excludable from the gross 
income of the member pursuant to Code section 415, and shall be interpreted 
in a manner consistent with that Code section. 

B. Limit on Annual Additions Under Code Section 41 5 

1. A member's Limit on Annual Additions shall for any calendar year be an 
amount equal to the lesser of: 

(a) 100% of the member's includible compensation within the meaning 
of Code section 415(c)(3)(E) in such calendar year, or 

(b) $46,000, or such greater amount as is permitted under Code section 
415(c) as adjusted under Code section 415(d)(1)(B). 

For purposes of determining a member's Limit on Annual Additions, 
in the case of a member who has more than 50% control of an 
employer (a "Controlled Employer") within the meaning of Code 
section 415(h), contributions to a plan of the Controlled Employer that 
constitute annual additions (as defined in Code section 415(c)(2)) to 
the member shall be treated as contributions to this Plan. 

2. A member's "includible compensation" for purposes of paragraph (1), 
above, shall mean the amount of compensation received from an 
employer within the meaning of Code section 403(b)(3) and 414(e) which 
is includible in gross income, computed without regard to Code section 
911 for the most recent period ending not later than the close of the 
taxable year which is counted as a one year period of service as defined 
under paragraph (3) below. Such term shall not include any amount 
received by a former member after the fifth taxable year following the 
taxable year in which such member was terminated, or utilities to the 
extent such amounts are not includible in compensation pursuant to 
Code section 107. 

3. A member's "period of service" for purposes of paragraph (2) above shall 
be expressed as a number equal to the member's number of full years of 
service plus one-twelfth for each one month period of service in addition 
to his or her full years of service. Part-time service of a member shall be 
taken into account as the percentage of such service that is equal to the 
percentage of full-time service served. 

Notwithstanding any provision of this Article VIII. B to the contrary, the Limit on 
Annual Additions of a member who has made an election under Code section 
415(c)(7) shall be determined under such Code section and the regulations issued 
thereunder. 

C. Prohibition on Before-Tax Salary Reduction Contributions - Before-tax contri 
butions under a salary reduction agreement shall not be permitted under this 
Fund. 

IX. Death Benefits - When a participating member of the Fund dies, the Treasurer 
shall pay to his or her designated beneficiary or beneficiaries, otherwise to 
his or her estate, the full amount of the base benefit payments plus the 
dividends, if any, added to his or her account. In the event that a minister dies 
prior to the eleventh year of membership, the designated beneficiary or benefi- 
ciaries, or otherwise the estate, shall receive the full amount of the base benefit 
payments plus the assessments contributed by the participating member. In no 
case would the beneficiary, beneficiaries or estate receive less at the time of the 
ministers death than the member's assessments plus simple interest credited 



438 



annually at the rate of The United Methodist Foundation, Inc., cumulative dividend 
yield for the most recent four quarters prior to the date of death. 
X Designation of Beneficiary - Each member shall provide the Conference Trea 
surer the name(s) of the beneficiary or beneficiaries to whom the death benefits 
described in Article IX are to be paid in the event of death. The designation shall be 
indicated on a form provided by the Conference Treasurer. A designation shall not 
be effective unless such form has been duly completed and filed with the Confer- 
ence Treasurer. In the absence of a designated beneficiary, benefits shall be paid 
to the member's estate. 
X. Irrevocable Election Regarding Distribution of Funds - Members actively serving 
must make, prior to attaining age 59 1/2, an irrevocable election to either terminate 
from the Ministers' Transition Fund beginning with the Annual Conference follow 
ing the attainment of age 60 or to defer termination from the Fund until retirement, 
as defined in the Book of Discipline, 2004, UU359.1, 359.2a, 359.2b, 359.2c. 
Such irrevocable election is the responsibility of the member and must be made 
in writing to the Conference Treasurer by age 59 1/2. Forms can be obtained upon 
request from the Conference Treasurer. Should the member fail to make the 
irrevocable election, the member will not terminate from this Fund until retirement. 
XII. Payment of Benefits 

A In General -At retirement or early termination from the Fund, members who 
have accrued the same number of years of service credited under the Fund 
(during the same calendar years) will have exactly the same accrued benefit 
and will receive exactly the same benefit regardless of their total individual 
contributions. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Fund, all payments 
under this Fund must be made at least as rapidly as required under section 
401(a)(9) of the Code and any proposed or final regulations thereunder, 
including but not limited to the incidental death benefit requirements of Code 
section 401(a)(9)(G). In no case would the member receive less at retirement 
than the member's assessments plus interest computed at the United 
Methodist Foundation, Inc. cumulative dividend yield for the four most recent 
quarters prior to the retirement date. 

1. Ministers With Less Than Ten (10) Years. For ministers retiring between 
January 1 through Annual Conference, and who retire or terminate from 
this Fund with less than ten (10) years credit in the Fund shall be paid in a 
single lump sum immediately following the session of the Annual 
Conference at which he or she retires or terminates. For ministers retiring 
between Annual Conference and December 31, payment shall be paid 
between January 1 and January 10 of the year following the year in which 
the minister terminates or retires. The benefit shall be the base benefit as 
prescribed in the table for retired members under Article VI plus minister 
contributions 

2. Ministers With Ten (10) or More Years. A minister who retires or termi- 
nates from this Fund with ten (10) or more years credit in the Fund must 
make an irrevocable election to receive benefit payments under one of the 
following options. This irrevocable election must be made no later than 
ninety days prior to the retirement month or month of termination due to 
early retirement or disability. For either option selected, total benefit 
payments shall be the base benefits as prescribed in the table plus the 
dividends credited. Interest will accrue on the principal balance begin- 
ning on the later of the retirement date or July 1 of the retirement year and 
will continue until the account is paid in full. The interest rate will equal 
the United Methodist Foundation, Inc. cumulative dividend yield for the 
four most recent quarters. All payments excluding the payment of member 



439 



assessments shall be subject to income tax. 

(a) Two payment option: The first payment shall be equal to the cumula- 
tive amount that the member has paid in assessments. The second 
payment shall be the remainder of dividends and base benefit 
payment earned during their membership and interest accrued. 

(b) Six payment option. The first payment shall be equal to the cumula 
tive amount that the member has paid in assessments. The remain- 
ing payments shall be five equal annual installments of the remaining 
dividends and base benefit payment earned during their member 
ship and interest accrued. The six payment option shall not be 
available to a member following attainment of age 70. 

For ministers retiring between January 1 and Annual Conference, under either 
option, the first payment shall be paid within 15 working days following the 
adjournment of the Annual Conference following the ministers' retirement or 
termination from the Fund. The second and subsequent payments shall be paid 
annually between January 1 and January 10 of each year following the year in 
which the minister terminates or retires until the account is paid in full. 

For ministers retiring between Annual Conference and December 31, the first 
payment and second payment for either payment option shall be paid between 
January 1 and January 10 of the year following the year in which the minister 
terminates or retires. Unless the minister selects the six payment option, 
the account shall be disbursed in full in the first January after retirement. If the six 
payment option is selected, the four remaining installments shall be paid annually 
between January 1 and January 10 of each subsequent year until the account 
is paid in full. 
B. Direct Rollovers 

1. This Article XII. B applies to distributions made on or after January 1, 1993. 
Notwithstanding any provision of the Fund to the contrary that would 
otherwise limit a distributee's election under this Article XII. B, a 
distributee may elect at the time and in the manner prescribed by the plan 
administrator, to have any portion of an eligible rollover distribution paid

442 



XX New Rules and Constitutional Provisions - The rules and guidelines of this 
constitution supersede all previous Conference legislation regulating this Fund. 
The Annual Conference, at any time or from time to time, may amend any or all of 
the provisions of this constitution without the consent of individual members of 
the Fund. No amendment shall have the effect of modifying any benefit election of 
any member in effect at the time of such amendment or modifying the benefit of 
any member who retired prior to the date of such amendment, unless the 
amendment expressly so provides. The Annual Conference established this Fund 
with the intent that it will be maintained for an indefinite period of time. However, 
the Annual Conference reserves the right to terminate the Fund, in whole or in part, 
at any time. No amendment, modification or termination of the Fund shall ad 
versely affect the members benefits accrued for his or her retirement at the time of 
termination of the Fund. 

XXI. Miscellaneous Provisions 

A. Prohibition Against Diversion - Subject to Code section 414(p), there shall be 
no diversion of any portion of the assets of the plan other than for the exclu 
sive benefit of members and their beneficiaries. 

B. Delegation of Authority - The Board of Pensions, Conference Treasurer and 
the Hearing Committee may authorize any agent or agents to carry out their 
duties, and may employ such counsel, auditors, and other specialists and 
such clerical, actuarial and other services as it may require in carrying out the 
provisions of the Fund. 

C. Notification of Mailing Address - Each member and other person entitled to 
benefits hereunder shall from time to time file with the Conference, in writing, 
such persons post office address and change of post office address. Any 
check representing any payment due hereunder, and any communication 
forwarded to a member of beneficiary at the last known address as indicated by 
the records of the Conference shall constitute adequate payment to such 
person and be binding on such person for all purposes of the plan. The 
Conference, Board of Pensions, Conference Treasurer and Hearing Commit 
tee shall not be under any obligation to search for or ascertain the where 
abouts of any such person. 

D. Unclaimed Benefits - If any benefits payable to, or on behalf of, a member are 
not claimed within a reason able period of time from the date of entitlement, 
as determined by the Hearing Committee, and if the member cannot be 
located at his or her last provided mailing address, such member shall be 
presumed dead and the post-death benefits, if any, under this plan shall be 
paid to his or her beneficiary if he or she is then living and can be located. If 
the member's beneficiary is not then living or cannot be located, or if no 
beneficiary was effectively named, the member's account shall be forfeited 
and treated as dividends pursuant to Article VII. 

E Facility of Payment - Whenever, in the Hearing Committees opinion, a person 
entitled to receive any payment of a benefit under the plan is under a legal 
disability or is incapacitated in any way so as to be unable to manage such 
person's financial affairs, the Hearing Committee may, to the extend permitted 
by law, make payments directly to the person, to the person's legal represen 
tative, or to a relative or friend of the person to be used exclusively for such 
person's benefit, or apply any such payment for the benefit of the person in 
such manner as the Hearing Committee deems advisable. Any benefit 
payment (or installment thereof) made in accordance with the provisions of 
this shall completely discharge the obligation for making such payment 
under the plan. 

F. Commingling of Assets - The assets of the Fund may be commingled in a 



443 



common fund made up of such accounts or in a common fund with other 
amounts exclusively devoted to church purposes, provided that the 
part of such fund which equitably belongs to the plan shall be separately 
accounted for and cannot be used for or diverted to purposes other than for 
the exclusive benefit of employees and their beneficiaries. The reasonable 
costs of administering an account may be charged against the account. Such 
costs may include the reasonable costs of administering a retirement income 
program of which the account is a part, including costs associated with 
informing employees and employers of the availability of the program. 

G Governing Law - This plan shall be administered, and its validity, construction, 
and all rights hereunder shall be governed by the Book of Discipline of The 
United Methodist Church, and by the laws of the State of North Carolina to the 
extent not in conflict with such Book of Discipline. If any provisions of the plan 
shall be held invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions hereof shall 
continue to be fully effective. 

H. Limitations on Liability - The Conference, Conference Treasurer, Board of 
Pensions and members of the Hearing Committee shall not be liable to any 
person or entity for any of their acts carried out hereunder in good faith and 
based upon the information available at the time.

United Methodist Foundation 

YOUR UNITED METHODIST FOUNDATION - OUR CONNECTIONAL RELATIONSHIP 

The United Methodist Foundation, Inc. is an independent, non-profit corporation, 
related by faith to the North Carolina Conference through the Board of Institutions. 
Strengthened by its faith connection and a rich tradition of excellence in Stewardship 
Ministry, the Foundation is chartered to serve only the churches, institutions, agencies 
and ministries of the North Carolina Annual Conference. 

Since 1955, the Mission of United Methodist Foundation, Inc. has been to: 

• Provide professional investment management services for long-term 
funds belonging to local churches, institutions, agencies and special 
ministries of the North Carolina Conference. 

• Educate, encourage and receive planned gifts from individuals in support 
of their local church, United Methodist institutions, and special ministries 
of the North Carolina Conference. 

PROFESSIONAL INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT SERVICES 

Currently, the Foundation is assisting more than 300 churches, agencies, and 
institutions in the North Carolina Conference. This investment partnership offers the 
benefits of greater diversification of investments along with the possibility of 
minimizing costs and maximizing investment return. 

Through its relationship with a carefully-selected team of national and 
international professional money managers, United Methodist Foundation, Inc. is able 
to offer high quality asset management for its long-term funds at a cost that may be 
lower than available elsewhere. UMF currently partners with Smith Barney Consulting 
Group and has nine portfolio managers handling our custom portfolio of investments. 
Total investment in the nine funds is allocated based on percentages determined by 
our Board of Directors as the best to have reasonable returns while minimizing risk. 
In the Foundation's Balanced Fund investment option, assets are actively managed in 
a much larger pool of assets, currently totally over $89 million. This fund has returned 
just over $78.5 million in total disbursements to Foundation Investment Partners 
during the past 15 years while simultaneously growing the overall value of the 
Balanced Fund by $52 million. Over the past 25 years, this fund has provided churches 
an average annual return of 9.64%, net of all fees. 

At the same time, funds invested with United Methodist Foundation are uniquely 
managed according to The Social Principles of the United Methodist Church. Thus, all 
money managers are instructed to screen out of their investment portfolios any 
industries and companies that derive significant gross revenue from alcohol, tobacco, 
gambling, pornography, or armaments. Investments are encouraged in companies 
that are dedicated to making a positive social, moral, and economic impact on society. 
UMF is dedicated to socially responsible investing (SRI) and will not knowingly invest 
in companies whose activities are contrary to the Social Principles. Fund managers 
follow the Statement of Investment Guidelines of the Investment Committee of the UM 
General Council on Finance and Administration and the guidance of the UM General 
Board of Pensions and Health Benefits in determining social responsibility of the 
companies in which monies are invested. 
PLANNED GIVING AND ENDOWMENT EDUCATION SERVICES 

The central mission of United Methodist Foundation, Inc. is its Endowment

Carolina Conference. This service provides stewardship consultation to help local 
churches as well as Conference institutions and agencies establish permanent 
endowment programs.

UMF also provides planned giving consultation for individual donors wishing to 
establish permanent or long-term gift arrangements to benefit various ministries of the 
their benevolent goals by creating gift plans most appropriate for their situation and 
works cooperatively with donor's legal, tax and financial advisors. 

Additionally, the Foundation serves as trustee for many individual Family 
Endowments and Donor Advised Funds, and Life-Income Gift Plans producing 
charitable remainder benefits for ministries throughout the Church. As Trustee of 
YOUR UNITED METHODIST FOUNDATION - OUR CONNECTIONAL RELATIONSHIP 
The United Methodist Foundation, Inc. is an independent, non-profit corporation, 
related by faith to the North Carolina Conference through the Board of Institutions. 
Strengthened by its faith connection and a rich tradition of excellence in Stewardship 
Ministry, the Foundation is chartered to serve only the churches, institutions, agencies 
and ministries of the North Carolina Annual Conference. 

Since 1955, the Mission of United Methodist Foundation, Inc. has been to: 

• Provide professional investment management services for long-term funds 
belonging to local churches, institutions, agencies and special ministries of 
the North Carolina Conference. 

• Educate, encourage and receive planned gifts from individuals in support of 
their local church, United Methodist institutions, and special ministries of the 
North Carolina Conference. 

PROFESSIONAL INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT SERVICES 

All funds entrusted with the Foundation are invested according to the Social 
Principles of the United Methodist Church as guided by the Statement of Investment 
Guidelines (Revised Edition 2004) of the Investment Committee of the General 
Council on Finance and Administration of the United Methodist Church. The 
Consulting Group of Smith Barney provides the Foundation with investment 
consultation and management services. Eight professional investment fund 
managers, employed by the Foundation's Board of Directors and reporting to the 
Investment Consultant, successfully accomplish the day-to-day management of the 
Foundation's investment portfolio. 

Over the past 25 years, the Foundation, through its Investment Policy and well 
balanced and well diversified Balanced Fund, has provided Investment Partner 
churches, agencies and institutions a 9% average annual return on investment net of 
all fees. Since 1992, the Foundation has added $ 57 million in increased value to its 
Balanced Fund while paying out $ 82.5 million to Investment Partners. The Foundation 
currently manages $ 103 million in 812 accounts belonging to the North Carolina 
Annual Conference and just over 300 churches, agencies and institutions of the North 
Carolina Annual Conference. 
PLANNED GIVING AND ENDOWMENT EDUCATION SERVICES 

While the Foundation's Investment Management Service provides valuable 
support for Ministry throughout the Church, the heart of the Foundation's mission is its 
Planned Giving and Endowment Building Services. These "donor-focused / Church- 
building" services provide specialized planning and "technical" assistance that help 
individuals and their legal, tax and financial advisors to accomplish their charitable 
goals. 

Additionally, the Foundation serves as trustee for many individual Family 
Endowments and Donor Advised Funds, and life-income Gift Plans producing 
charitable remainder benefits for ministries throughout the Church. As Trustee of 
these special funds, the Foundation is responsible to assure that all charitable 
remainder amounts and Endowment Fund earnings support the ministries selected 
by the donor.

Trustees, Conference Board of 

The Board of Trustees of the Annual Conference is charged with responsibilities 
vital to the mission and ministry of the Conference as defined in paragraphs 2512- 2516 
of the 2004 Book of Discipline. These include holding legal title and managing 
Conference property; receiving and holding bequests and donations; receiving and 
managing closed or abandoned churches and other property; recommending action to 
the Annual Conference regarding sale, lease or acquisition of property to serve the 
Conference interests and mission; and intervening to protect Annual Conference 
interests. 

THE UNITED METHODIST BUILDING RELOCATION 

The Conference Board of Trustees has worked over the last several years to 
determine the best alternative for a possible relocation of the United Methodist Building. 
The United Methodist Building is currently located at 1307 Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh. 
Over the course of the last year as the Long Range Planning committee of the Trustees 
did its work evaluating possible alternatives, an unsolicited offer was received on the 
1307 Glenwood property including the Raleigh Townhomes property, which is subject to 
a 50-year land lease that ends in 2014. As the Trustees considered that offer, a second 
offer was received on the same property. After negotiations with both parties, the 
Trustees recommend that the Annual Conference approve accepting the negotiated 
second offer and sell the Glenwood Avenue property as well as the townhomes property 
subject to the existing land lease. The selling price for both of these properties together 
is $7.5 million dollars. This would include an initial closing on the Glenwood property 
within 60 days of the approval by Annual Conference and then a separate closing on the 
townhome property. 

The Conference Board of Trustees evaluated further planning for the relocation of 
the United Methodist Building if the sale of the Glenwood Avenue property is approved by 
Annual Conference. Included in the negotiations of the two offers was the right to lease 
back the current building for a period of two years and remain in the current building 
while a new building is under construction. The Board of Trustees worked with its realty 
consultant, Grubb & Ellis|Thomas Linderman Graham, and looked at specifications for 
over 80 properties in the Raleigh and surrounding area. You will recall that the Annual 
Conference approved in 2001 the purchase of property in Garner in the Greenfield 
Parkway area. This property was one of the properties added to the list for 
consideration to see if this was still the best place for relocation of the Annual 
Conference. After reviewing the options as an Executive Committee, Long Range 
Planning Committee and full Board, the Trustees voted unanimously to recommend to 
the Annual Conference to proceed with the sale of the Glenwood Avenue property and 
land leased for the Raleigh Townhomes and to relocate to the property we already own 
in the Greenfield Parkway area. 

This property is located at the intersection of Interstate 40 and Highway 70 just 
outside of Garner. The property has been zoned for commercial and multipurpose uses 
and is part of an association with restrictive covenants regarding the future use of 
property within Greenfield Park. This location was favored by the Trustees in part 
because of the ease of accessibility from the eastern and southern parts of our 
Conference. Preliminary consideration of the needs of the annual conference tells us 
that we need a building of about 35,000 square feet. Initial cost estimates for a building 
of that size would indicate a building cost of around $5 to $5.5 million dollars, including 
moving and other incidental costs. At this anticipated cost, there would be sufficient 
funding to build the new building without a capital campaign or debt to the Annual 
Conference.

CONFERENCE PARSONAGES AND EPISCOPAL RESIDENCE 

The Board of Trustees currently provides four Conference staff positions with 
housing allowances in lieu of parsonages. The Trustees remain committed to the 
parsonage system and hold investments from previous parsonage sales to fund future 
acquisitions of parsonages if needed. Market value of those investments is currently 
$1,135,755 as of December 31, 2007. A combination of earnings on investments and 
proceeds from the Conference budget fund the housing allowances. 

The Episcopal Residence is maintained by the Board of Trustees and funding 
provided by the conference apportionments and the Episcopal Fund which is managed 
by the General Council on Finance and Administration. The new residence obtained in 
2004 still needs minimal maintenance and the Trustees will make future 
recommendations as needed. 

FREDERICK AND CLOSS PEACE WARDLAW BEQUEST 

In August of 2002, the Trustees were notified of a bequest to be received from the 
estate of Frederick and Closs Peace Wardlaw in the form of some fourteen acres with 
dwelling on the Virginia shoreline of Kerr Lake. This was left for the purpose of providing 
a retreat or renewal location for clergy of the Conference. With concurrence of the estate 
trustees in 2003, the property was sold for $500,000 and a new lot in a gated 
community, Somerset Plantation, near Williamsboro, NC, was purchased. The 
remaining funds of the sale, $351,437.02 are held for future consideration of an 
appropriate way to honor Frederick and Closs Peace Wardlaw. These funds are 
invested with the United Methodist Foundation and have a market value of $390,655 as 
of December 31, 2007. 

PROPERTY INSURANCE 

As reported in previous years, the Board of Trustees placed all annual conference 
property and all closed church properties with the Property and Casualty Trust (PACT) in 
August 2006. PACT is a captive insurance company created by the General Council on 
Finance and Administration and 18 other annual conferences. With the conference 
property being placed with PACT, we can now extend PACT coverages to local churches 
for property and casualty insurance needs. Discounted group rates were made 
available beginning July 1, 2007. When joining PACT, all members must pay a one- 
time capitalization fee for membership. This fee is used by the trust to build the base 
required legally for insurance funding. The Trustees requested and received a 
supplemental appropriation from the Council
