Led by Bishop David W. Graves, the Alabama - West Florida Annual Conference is dedicated to its mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. The conference steadfastly works toward a vision of thriving churches where disciple-making ministries are brought to life. The conference identifies four specific areas in which that vision is turned into reality. These priorities are to develop lay and clergy leaders, to plant new congregations and faith communities, to expand mission opportunities and to become a church for all God's children.
The Alabama – West Florida Conference has more than 141,000 members, including about 900 active and retired pastors serving over 600 churches.
