The Role of the BOA
The Board of Administration acts as the conference’s standing administrative committee between Annual Conference sessions. Their primary focus is to develop and manage policies for the entire conference within the constraints of the Book of Discipline. Comprising an equal number of ministerial and lay (non-ordained) leaders, the BOA ensures that we remain on a path of spiritual growth and community impact.
