Our Commission

The General Commission on Communications (United Methodist Communications) is charged with the task of meeting the communication, public relations, and marketing needs of the entire Church, reflecting the cultural and racial diversity within The United Methodist Church. United Methodist Communications provides resources and services to local churches and annual conferences and has a consultative relationship with all general agencies of the church and with any structure for communication and public relations at the jurisdictional, Episcopal area, annual conference, district, or local church level.

This governing body consists of members selected from each of the jurisdictional conferences and from the central conferences, so that its members represent the diversity of our global church. The commission meets at least once each year to review the work of the agency as well as make decisions about the direction of the agency's work for the coming year.
