Deans & Conferences

A Sense of Mission

Conferences meet for mission purposes. We work together on mission, leadership development, campus ministry, stewardship, and global and local mission. These mission-driven conferences are designed to revitalize our regional collaboration, while allowing congregations a way to connect beyond their walls.

Special Points of Interest

  • There are seven conferences ranging from 12 to 22 congregations in size.
  • Each conference has a dean, appointed by the bishop and ratified by the conference.
  • Deans receive a small stipend for their work.


As it is, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you.”

~ 1 Corinthians 12:20-22a
