Bishop Mike Lowry’s Vision for the Global Methodist Church


The above video is a speech by former UMC Bishop Mike Lowry – now Bishop Emeritus of the Global Methodist Church (GMC).  He lays out a compelling vision for the GMC.  This speech was recorded at the Wesleyan Covenant Association & Confessing Movement dinner hosted by Hanfield UMC in Marion, IN on Friday night June 10, 2022, during the 2022 Indiana Annual Conference.  The audio breaks up a little in the first 10 minutes.  The whole video is 48 minutes, but worth the time.

Rev. Jeff Greenway, one of the founding leaders of the Global Methodist Church, explains the reasons he is excited about the GM Church.

Two Methodisms: A Comparison Chart



A Fresh Start


This past Saturday, 82 churches in the Central Texas Conference completed the process of withdrawing from The United Methodist Church. Seventy-two of them have aligned with the Global Methodist Church. They join others from Bulgaria, Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, Minnesota, Ohio, Kansas, Texas, Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and the Philippines as member congregations of a church singularly focused on making disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly.

Clergy Deployment in the Global Methodist Church


The decision on who will be the pastor of a congregation is among the most important decisions impacting the vitality, vibrancy, and fruitfulness of a local church. As the spiritual leader, the pastor has tremendous influence on a congregation’s mission and its vision for fulfilling it. Because the pastor generally addresses the church family at least once a week through the sermon, she or he often sets the tone for all that occurs as the congregation serves in its given mission field. Consequently, the right clergy deployment decision can result in a new season of growth, deepening discipleship, and greater impact for the kingdom. A poor deployment decision often results in decline, conflict, and malaise.

Global Methodists, Methodically Organizing for a Faithful Future


Less than four months from its origins, the Global Methodist Church continues to welcome local churches into the new denomination and is now witnessing the coalescing of congregations into provisional annual conferences. Two provisional annual conferences have already formed, one in Bulgaria and another in South Georgia, U.S., five transitional conference advisory teams are exploring the creation of provisional annual conferences in their areas, and additional teams are coming together in eleven other regions.

Preparing the Way: Baptisms, Connectional Funding and Benefits


The Global Methodist Church celebrates several recent developments – baptisms at a new church plant, the announcement of connectional funding percentages for support of general church and annual conference ministry beyond the local church, and the announcement of a significant development with respect to benefits offered to clergy and lay employees of local churches.

Wednesday Morning Women’s Bible Study

Have you ever prayed for Peace? Well, Peace is a person. Life moves at a break-neck speed. Worry and fear are constant companions. Jesus offers us a different kind of life. He offers peace. He is peace. This 7-week study on the gospel of John will encourage us to slow down and linger with the Living Word. The peace Jesus offers is not an ease of circumstances but a stillness of the soul. As a result, you’ll grow in intimacy with Him and learn to rest in His peace.

Friendship Circle

The Friendship Circle focuses on serving youth and women in Johnson and Marion Counties while volunteering for events at Mount Auburn in support of the Children and Youth Ministry.  In 2023 we supported collection of school supplies for the United Way of Johnson County Fast Track Program, donated 150+ pairs of socks to Salvation Army of Marion County’s Back to School program, donated hygiene products to Perry Meridian High School Key Club in support of a Marion County domestic violence shelter, made ‘no-sew’ fleece winter scarves for those in need in Johnson County, and prepared and served meals for Mount Auburn Youth Group and Youth Alpha Study Group. Please join us if you have a heart for service in these areas and help our group branch out and share God’s love while serving.  All generations are welcomed. To join us or learn more, contact Donna Silvertooth at [email protected].
