What are Apportionments?
Apportionments are the way that local churches combine their financial resources to enable our vision for mission and ministry at every level of the United Methodist Church. In the Northern Illinois Conference there are three Apportioned Funds:
- Support for Ordained Leadership
- Mission & Evangelism
- Reconnecting the Connection
Equipped with these funds, United Methodists are able to do together what no individual, church, cluster, district, or conference could support on their own. These funds support our shared mission and ministries not just as a conference, but also as a denomination. When you local church pays its apportionment in full, we can fully support our Conference’s share of the seven General Church Apportioned Funds.
What is Connected to Transform?
In 2009, a task force was formed to improve the Apportionment interpretation materials for local churches and pastors in the NIC. This dialogue sparked the theme of "Connected to Transform," and the development of new resources that celebrate our connectional church and all of the Church's ministries that our transforming the world.
