UNITED METHODIST
ANNUAL CONFERENCES

WHO WE ARE

Annual Conferences in the United Methodist Church are regional bodies but also hold yearly conferences. Midwest Mission works with the Annual Conferences in the North Central Jurisdiction and its neighboring conferences. 
 

Each year an equal number of clergy members and lay members attend their conference's annual conference session for worship, fellowship, and to conduct the business of the conferences, which may last 3-5 days in the months of May and June.  Midwest Mission does collections during the Conference's Annual Conference and has a booth in the exhibit area. 

UMC Conferences Midwest Mission will be at in 2024

COLLECTION INFORMATION
At several Annual Conferences, Midwest Mission will be holding a donation collection. Our biggest needs are Home Care Kits and Personal Dignity Kits, however, we will accept anything listed in our Kits and Projects Brochure (except for large amounts of bikes and treadle sewing machines). If your conference is hosting a collection, it will be listed below with location and open hours as information is provided.
