During Annual Conference in June we plan to highlight abundant life enhancing ministries taking place in our local church and ministry settings. We are looking for photos! Because we expect to have a large number of submissions, a selection committee will make the final decision on which photos will be used. If you would like to submit a digital photograph please:

  • Ensure that you have a completed and signed photo release form on file in your church for each person in the photo (UMCom has sample releases available on their website)
  • Provide a short written description of the ministry depicted in the photo
  • Provide your name and contact information
  • Send the photo in the largest .jpeg file you have available
  • Send the digital photo with the other information requested to:  photos@greaternw.org

If you have any further questions please email one of the following conference lay leaders: Jan Nelson (jannelson515@msn.com) , Nancy Davis  (ntamdavis@gmail.com), Emilie Kroen (ekroen@yahoo.com) , or David Reinholz (dreinholz@gmail.com) .

All complete submissions received by May 1st will be considered.

Petitions/recommendations to be considered at the 2017 Pacific Northwest Annual Conference Session need to be submitted to the PNW Conference Office by April 15. Resolutions submitted by this date will be reviewed by the Director of Connectional Ministries for consideration at a joint gathering of the Connectional Table and the Council on Finance and Administration on May 19. At that meeting, individuals submitting legislation may also be invited to participate. Alternatively, legislation may be directed to a conference board or agency, after consultation with the author, for direct action by that group. Conference staff may also be in contact to assist in clarifying the petitions intent or to offer other forms of assistance.

Recommendations, proposals, and petitions to be discussed at the May 19 meeting will be published online after the submission deadline of April 15 with an option for Annual Conference member comment. Those comments will be provided to participants in the May 19 gathering.
