A revised edition of the perennial guide to United Methodist structure and governance. An indispensable guide for all United Methodists--especially pastors, lay leaders, church council members, confirmation and new member candidates and their instructors, and seminarians--the book is presented in a practical, down-to-earth manner for easy use by both individuals and classes, clergy and lay. It highlights the functions and connectional relationships within the organization, beginning with the local church and continuing through connectional organs in districts, annual conferences and their agencies, jurisdictional conferences and their agencies, the General Conference, the general agencies of the Church, and the Judicial Council.
