Annual Conference Report
The Kingdom Ministry Group (KMG) was created to help streamline the process of church planting. The KMG partners with the appointed leadership of Church Planting Projects and fosters them into healthy thriving Free Methodist Societies.
Over the past year our primary focus has been on supporting our pastors during this difficult time. Pastors Charles Latchison and Refugio Sanchez have worked to assess needs, opportunities and obstacles to develop sustainable ministries. We’ve also reached out to pastors individually to make sure they are personally doing well. This outreach will remain a focus for the KMG.
A second focus area has been to develop new processes to streamline the onboarding process and ensure accountability. Our goal is to ensure all churches are structured to thrive as we move forward.
As we look forward, we’re evaluating how to structure the KMG to move the Kingdom forward. As we move past the challenges for the last two years, we want to reenergize the process for bringing in new churches to the Free Methodist family. Our goal is to find folks that have a heart for this work, and to develop processes and structures to support them. As we move into a time of transition, we’re evaluating ways to make the KMG more effective and successful in recruiting new leaders and establishing successful Free Methodist churches in Southern California.
This has been a challenging season. We want to continue to pray for our Church Plants and their leadership. We are blessed by these leaders, as well as by having the opportunity to find new ways to support them and further the Kingdom as we move forward together.
