Appointments List Is Now On Line

July 03, 2008

A complete, preliminary Appointments List – constituting the Appointment/Assignment List for the Local Church and the Appointment/Assignment List Beyond the Local Church – is now on line.

The list reflects the information reported at Annual Conference Session, June 2008 – the best information currently available. It will be revised over the course of the summer to reflect any necessary corrections/revisions.
The printing of the Journal will record the Official Minutes of the Annual Conference Session. Please be advised that while the Journal list is alphabetical, in this listing the Appointment/Assignment List for the Local Church is posted by district.
You’ll find a direct link to the Appointment/Assignment list under “What’s New” on the lower right side of the Home Page at
You may also link to it from the Annual Conference Session News page (navigate there by clicking on “Annual Conference 2008” under “Quick Links” on the upper left side of the Home Page).
While you’re on the Annual Conference Session News page, link to the online Annual Conference Session Evaluation form. You may also download Daily Summaries, the text of the June 19 address by GBCS General Secretary Jim Winkler, monitoring reports by CCORR – the Conference Commission on Religion and Race (which monitored racial, ethnic, gender, and generational inclusiveness during ACS), and pre-conference Reports and Resolutions. You’ll find information on that page about ordering audio cassettes of this year’s plenary sessions and worship services, as well.
Please note that even though the complete, preliminary Appointments List now has been posted, the links between the pastors and the churches, reflecting July 1, 2008 Appointments, will be not be updated on the Conference website until the data is conveyed by the Board of Pensions. Until that time “church” and “clergy” searches will not reflect the Appointments that became effective July 1.
