Franconia and Eastern District Conferences’ leadership met with Conference Related Ministry (CRM) leaders on Wednesday, April 24, to fellowship, build relationships, and further clarify the partnership that these ministries have with both conferences.

During the lunch, Ertell Whigham, executive minister for Franconia Conference, and Warren Tyson, conference minister for Eastern District Conference, updated CRM leaders on the status of the Eastern District/Franconia relationship.  They also suggested common values that Conference Related Ministries share with Franconia Conference and honored the ministries for their excellent support of conference constituents, regardless of their conference affiliation.

CRM leaders were also encouraged to provide the conference with areas of expertise in which their staff could provide resourcing for congregations.  These resources will be gathered and included in a new directory on the Franconia Conference website.

Conference Related Ministries are organizations that collaborate with Franconia Conference and serve congregations and neighborhoods in the name of Jesus.  To see a full list of CRMs, check out our directory.
