Church and Society

About Us:

According to the Book of Discipline 2016  ¶629: “The Conference Board of Church and Society shall serve to connect the General Board of Church and Society and the district and local churches in relating the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the members of the Church and structures of the communities, nation, and world in which they live. Programs shall be developed that provides education and action on issues confronting the church consistent with the Social Principles and the policies adopted by the General Conference.”  

Currently, the NIC Board is working on issues related to childhood poverty, mass incarceration, corporate tax accountability, and gun violence.
