Charge Conference Form Submission timeline


Please find below specific instructions for the order and timeline for saving and submitting your charge conference forms.

  1. All forms MUST BE completed and submitted online. For technical instructions for completion of the online forms, click here for a video of Chris Hampton’s training session.
  2. All forms (except the Agenda and Minutes for Charge Conference) MUST BE completed and saved online by the Monday BEFORE your scheduled Sunday Missional Network Charge Conference date. Example: If your Missional Network Charge Conference is scheduled for Sunday, September 29th, your forms and reports should be completed and saved online by Monday, September 23rd. For a list of dates and times of all the scheduled Missional Network Charge Conferences, see above "SCHEDULE".
  3. Once you have completed and saved all your forms, please send Ruth Kapely an email informing her that your forms are ready for review. Ruth’s email is: rkapely@wnccumc.org
  4. The week prior to your scheduled charge conference, Ruth and Beth will review all the saved forms for completion and adequacy. You will receive an email from Ruth letting you know if there are any corrections or edits that need to be made. If you do NOT hear from Ruth, your forms are deemed complete and ready for submission upon completion of the charge conference.
  5. Identify the person from your church who will be present and serve as the Recording Secretary for your church at the scheduled Missional Network Charge Conference (each church will need their own Recording Secretary).
  6. At the Missional Network Charge Conference, your church’s Recording Secretary will keep the minutes according to the Agenda and Minutes for Charge Conference form, including a LIST of all those present from your church at the charge conference. After the charge conference, this online form will need to be updated and completed including the list of those in attendance either as a typed list or an uploaded image.
  7. Following the completion of your scheduled Missional Network Charge Conference and the completion of the minutes form, you will do the final SUBMIT of all the completed and approved forms according to the online directions. At this time, when you type in the name and office of those indicated on the form, it will be the official signature and approval of these forms. For Presiding Elder, enter: Rev. Beth Crissman, Blue Ridge District Superintendent (and this authorizes Beth’s signature on that form as well).
