The Alabama – West Florida Conference “Connecting Our Resources and Empowerment” (CORE) Team is a common table, where chairpersons and leaders from all the Boards and Councils come together to evaluate and continually revise and refine our ministry as an annual conference.
Guided by our Conference mission, vision, strategy, and focus, this flexible and responsive team can allocate resources, discover new persons for service and constantly hold one another accountable to the vision. The CORE Team meets four times a year and follows a meeting cycle. The first meeting of the year is the visioning meeting, the second is a focus on new and emerging ministries, the third meeting is about reviewing the ministries and setting the budget building process, and the fourth is about compiling and adopting the conference budget which then goes to the Conference Council on Finance and Administration (CFA) for approval.
This team is the core of the annual conference structure, providing a connecting link among all the leadership teams, boards, and councils in our work.
In addition, the CORE team provides a comprehensive program of nurture, outreach, and witness, along with leadership training, and the planning and administration of the conference’s organizational and temporal life, in accordance with the mission of the United Methodist Church.
