Welcome to the web site of the North Central Conference. You've discovered a group of believers in Christ and churches who endeavor to take seriously God’s call to live God-honoring lives, share the good news about Jesus Christ, and make disciples. The North Central Conference is a connection of Free Methodist churches in the Dakotas, Iowa, Minnesota, Northern Illinois, Northern Missouri, and Wisconsin – serving through 55 congregations, two Christian camps, and several social service agencies. In addition, Free Methodists live out their faith in over 100 countries around the world.

At this web site, you will find many resources, including information and opportunities for ministry and materials to help develop pastors and local church leadership, revitalize churches, and extend a church planting movement in our region. Please check out the many links provided for your use.

I came to the position of conference superintendent after serving 32 years as a Free Methodist pastor in Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, and Kentucky. I am passionate about introducing persons to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and equipping believers to serve God with in fruitful ministry with their spiritual giftedness. This conference is blessed with men and women who are dedicated workers, skilled leaders, and caring pastors, and I count it a privilege to serve Jesus alongside them.
