2022 Charge Conference Information

August 15, 2022

Dear Pastors,

I hope that you have found some time to rest and rejuvenate in some way this summer. I am praying for you this fall as you work to stay focused on mission and ministry and make disciples through the fall programming in your local church. We continue to face many obstacles in ministry today, but I am encouraged by your ability to continue to run the race with perseverance!

Our charge conference forms will again be completed completely online this year. Our conference staff and district superintendents have worked diligently to make the forms as clear, simple, and concise as possible. All completed forms will be due by October 7 (regardless of the date of your charge conference), and forms will not be accepted through mail. Our schedule for the charge conference season is as follows:  

August 15: Online charge conference forms are now live and accessible through your local church dashboard. Tutorials and instructions may be found at in the right column of this page.

September 15: District superintendents will produce charge conference schedules for their districts no later than this date. Remember, most of these charge conferences will be done in clusters and/or on Zoom calls. 

October 7: All charge conference forms are due (regardless of the date of your charge conference). All forms are to be submitted through the dashboard, including the signature page, by this date. Forms will not be accepted by mail or email. All questions should be addressed to your district administrator (Kim Doss or Charlene Moncrief), and their contact information is found within the instructions and the online forms.  

Mid October-late November: All charge conferences will be completed during this six-week period. Please encourage your lay leadership to attend charge conference.

I am grateful for your willingness to work with our conference staff and district superintendents as we continue to find the best ways to do our shared work. And, I am grateful for your leadership in the Alabama-West Florida Conference.

In Christ,
Bishop David Graves
Alabama-West Florida Conference
