GCFA Board Approves Board of Global Ministries Office Relocation

gcfa_300Nashville, TN – The Board of Directors of the General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) approved a planned move by the General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM) from its New York headquarters to a primary location in Atlanta, Georgia. The board of directors for Global Ministries approved this move to further its reach throughout a worldwide United Methodist connection on October 27. As outlined in the Book of Discipline, the board of GCFA and the membership of the Connectional Table (CT) must approve the relocation. The CT approved the move at its annual meeting November 7.

The GCFA board approved the resolution during a called meeting on Friday, November 14.

“This action by the board of Global Ministries is more evidence that the connection of The United Methodist Church works best when we are working together to provide ministry. The careful consideration of this move took into consideration Global Ministries’ mission to the Church, the people it serves and the staff who work diligently to provide this ministry. GCFA supports this initiative and approved the resolution for the move,” said Bishop Michael Coyner, president of GCFA.

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)
