Why we apportion
The United Methodist Church uses a funding system in which each local church pays a portion of the cost of funding the denomination's ministries at the conference, national and international levels. The system is called "apportionment" because each church pays a portion. To learn more about the apportionment system, read Why We Apportion.
For more on apportionments, read a Wesleyan Perspective on Christian Stewardship.
“Turning Connectional Living into Connectional Giving” (CG101)
United Methodist Communications (UMCom) offers a free, basic online course that explores how to turn our connectional living as United Methodists into connectional giving that supports the shared ministry and mission of The United Methodist Church. It is a four-part journey through why we give, the connectional nature of the church, the Apportioned and Designated funds of the church, and how you can make a difference in the world. Access this training in the UMCom Training Room.
