2017 Approved Budget & Our Mission Covenant

Through Our Mission Covenant we come together to share God's grace and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We know through each church's participation in connectional giving, the United Methodist Churches of Kentucky will extend their witness throughout the Commonwealth and into the world. The 2017 Budget Brochure is a great tool to assist in telling the story of the Kentucky Annual Conference and its ministries. For additional resources, please contact the Administrative Services team. 

To financially underwrite our connectional ministries as a Kentucky Annual Conference, CFA asks that each church covenant to remit monthly 11% (effective January 2017) of income received for the operating budget of the local church. Monies received for capital expenditures, debt retirement, advance specials, special day offerings, the 5th Sunday offerings for the Kentucky United Methodist Home for Children and Youth and other missional projects beyond the local church are to be excluded. 

At the 2016 Annual Conference in Bowling Green, the 2017 budget proposed by CF&A was approved. Click here to view the 2017 budget.
