Thank you for your willingness to listen to the Spirit of our still speaking God, who may be calling you to serve as an Associate Conference Minister in Wisconsin. We are a hearty and joyful Conference, comprised of 218 congregations throughout four associations. We take seriously our covenant relationships, and cherish the connections among our diverse congregations and varied geographical landscape. We care deeply about our clergy, thus encourage lifelong learning, particularly through our vibrant Communities of Practice program. We also strive for congregational wellness, prioritizing support in times of transition and turmoil, and in opportunities for transformation.

The Wisconsin Conference is a place where people have a deep sense of pride and identity rooted in simple Midwestern values and the love of Jesus.
