The United Methodist Church has historically been a denomination that balances the need for clergy servant leadership with lay servant leadership. There are 4 required committees of the UMC: Staff- Parish Relations, Finance, Nominations, and Trustees. Along with these four committees an oversight lay leadership Team is necessary to envision, implement, and evaluate the ministry of the church. It is the organization of The United Methodist Church that creates a structure for the connection. The United Methodist Church is intentionally decentralized and democratic. Clergy and laity alike help determine the ministry and workings of The United Methodist Church through their actions in their local churches, annual conferences, general agencies and through petitions and resolutions they send to General Conference, and through the voting delegates who go to General Conference, the only body that can set official policy for the church.
