SERVANT LEADERS

The best church leader is a team – a team of diverse talents, skills, experiences, strengths, and abilities. Our shared faith, values, goals and respect will guide us to effectively support and lead our church. 


Williamsburg UMC wants and needs your input to develop the church leaders for next year and beyond. Nominations for servant leaders will begin in September. The nomination work is to be concluded by the election at the Charge Conference which is held in the fall of each year. Servant leaders usually serve in the same position for three years. 


New Committee to be Formed

Church in the World Committee is being formed, under the auspices of the Church Council, to address the missional priorities and justice-related ministries of WUMC by addressing their systemic causes through faithful advocacy, education and action. The committee will be guided by the Social Principles of the UMC in the Book of Discipline. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please complete the "Servant Leader" form below.
