Partner Churches

Our Partner Church Ministry works with churches throughout the country to strengthen the United Methodist Church so that together we can more effectively change lives and transform communities through the power of Jesus Christ.

We see this partnership model as the modern equivalent of the circuit rider system that was instrumental in the early growth of Methodism. In our model, each partner church is independent and maintains its charge through its own conference, but it has access to resources and training through Church of the Resurrection and the other partner churches that it would never have otherwise.

Together – in partnership with one another – we can strengthen and revitalize our denomination and other mainline churches. To explore whether being a Partner Church is right for your church, contact Randy Meyer.

Current Partner Churches include

  • Oakley UMC, Oakley, KS
  • Ruthven UMC, Ruthven, IA
  • Wright's Chapel UMC, Ruther Glen, VA
