Wisconsin Conference Annual Report 

Our new annual report looks quite different than in past years. Inside you’ll find quotes and stories reflecting many vital ministries in congregations and community life throughout our Wisconsin Conference. The report also highlights the many ways our Conference staff are deployed in pursuit of our mission – “to equip leaders and congregations to transform lives through innovative ministry for the 21st century.”

Your OCWM gifts continue to faithfully support the work of Conference staff, board and committees and the ongoing care and programs available to pastors and congregations. We hope you will take a look at the Annual Report and share it with your congregation.

Guided by the Great Commandments, Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 25, and a commitment to extravagant welcome, we will work together…
• to serve God and our neighbors with compassion

• to make bold and courageous choices with love

Our Vision

what will change if we are successful

By 2019 the people of the United Church of Christ in Wisconsin will be energized to be the church in their local context, expressed through passionate work toward a more just and generous world.

2016-2017 Goals

These are the vision goals for the coming twelve months:

  • Encourage and equip congregations to study and discuss “immigrant welcoming” resources and consider working on asylum advocacy and refugee resettlement
  • Continue the Shift Initiative (engage more congregations, curate resources, further engage cohort coaching, harness collective energies around the five emphases)
  • Collect and share inspiring stories emphasizing relational connections, collaborative approaches, and spiritual shifts from “maintenance” (scarcity) to “mission” (abundance)
