NIC Annual Conference
Jun
2
to Jun 4

NIC Annual Conference

Theme: Our theme for the 2019 session of the Annual Conference is “Back to the Future.” No, we won’t be time warping in a DeLorean like Marty McFly in the 1980s classic sci-fi flick who needs to make sure the past doesn’t change so he will still exist, but we will be recalling, reimagining, and reclaiming our history for a hopeful future.

Celebrations: We will celebrate our 180th year as a conference together along with Global Ministries, which is celebrating its bicentennial in 2019 and United Methodist Women, which is observing its 150th anniversary.

Agenda/Worship Services: (detailed agenda released closer to date)

Sunday, June 2 
Registration Table opens - 1 pm
New Member Orientation – 2 pm
Ordination Service - 4 pm

Monday, June 3
Retirement Service - 1:30 pm 

Tuesday, June 4

Please remember to submit names and photos of Lay Members to AC who have passed away since June 2018 to communications@umcnic.org.

Worship Leader:  Gary Rand will once again be our worship leader for a second year working with our worship team to develop our three main services. The Many Band will again bring us the music.

Bible Study Leader: This year’s Bible Study Leader is UMW General Secretary Harriett Olson who has served as chief executive officer of the United Methodist Women’s national administrative and policymaking arm since 2007.

Delegate Elections: This year we will be voting on Clergy and Lay Delegates for the 2020 General and Jurisdictional Conferences. We will elect three lay and three clergy General Conference delegates and three lay and three clergy Jurisdictional Conference delegates, as well as two clergy and lay alternates. Starting this year, the lay delegate nomination form will only be available online. Also this year, potential delegates will be asked to include a picture to make it easier to recognize candidates at Annual Conference. All active clergy are eligible candidates and do not need to fill out a form. To find the lay delegate election information form click here. 

Laity Reception: There will be no Laity Session at Annual Conference, but you're invited to a Laity Reception following the Ordination Service to meet all the Lay Delegate nominees for General and Jurisdictional Delegations. Read the call letter from the Conference Co-Lay Leaders.
