AC22 – Morning Devotion

May 31, 2022

On May 14, 2022, Reverend Clare Ferguson-Bravo reminded us in the Annual Conference morning devotion that we’re called to take a step of faith – to walk (or sometimes run!) faithfully in the path that God has set for us, even when the world feels like it’s falling apart around us.

# About Annual Conference 2022
Annual Conference is an exciting time to celebrate what God is doing throughout the Free Methodist Church. This year, we remembered not only how God has been faithful, but also how our churches and leaders have continued to live out faithfulness in their communities and ministries.

Annual Conference is a collaborative one-day gathering for Free Methodist leaders from the Free Methodist Church in Southern California (FMCSC) and the Pacific Coast Japanese Conference (PCJC). This year, we will focus on the theme of “Wholeness: Fostering Community & Creative Engagement” as we nurture a thriving ecosystem for growth, shared leadership, and creative collaboration between our conferences and churches.

Incoming Leaders
The Free Methodist Church is committed to raising up new leaders within the church that seek to build new congregations, grow ministries that impact communities, and train the next generation of leaders serving with them.

Elders
After completing the Ministerial Candidate process and engaging in thorough discernment with mentors and the Ministerial Education & Guidance Board, the Free Methodist Church acknowledges this journey through ordination – a testament to God’s calling for service within the church. We embrace these newly ordained Elders and pray for divine blessings in their ministries.

Conference Ministerial Candidates
The Conference Ministerial Candidate (CMC) process provides an opportunity to discern God’s calling, obtain educational training, and gain practical experience that reveals each candidate’s unique gifts and talents. We welcome these incoming Ministerial Candidates and pray for their progress and development throughout this process.
