GBHEM Board Approves Budget, Discusses Education Fund

We were unfortunately out of town when this came through and are just now catching up. Vicki Brown reports on the latest meeting of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry Board meeting:

Plans for the Young Clergy Initiative, the Central Conference Theological Education Fund, a report on a coming shortage of elders in the UMC, and the state of theological education were considered by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry’s Board of Directors at the Aug. 7-9 meeting in Nashville.

The Board also approved a $40.8 million budget for 2014, heard a report from General Secretary Kim Cape, and worshipped together.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
