Connectional structure infographic

The United Methodist Church is a connectional denomination made up of many parts.

The infographic illustrates the connection  that brings local congregations and those who worship in them togther in various configurations to become the global denomination known as The United Methodist Church.

The Constitution of The United Methodist Church provides for checks and balances among the three general or worldwide church bodies — the General Conference, the Judicial Council and the Council of Bishops, each of which plays a vital role in church life. It also illustrates the place of the general agencies, whose ministries and programs serve the global church.

Use this graphic to teach local church leaders and members about the organization of their denomination and the unique roles and responsibilities of each body/entity.
