Professional Administrators of the United Methodist Connectional Structure
The purpose of PAUMCS is to provide a supportive base for the unity and fellowship of its members in order to provide individual growth, professional development, continuous education, and spiritual enrichment. PAUMCS:
- promotes and encourages the training and support of United Methodist Church administrators;
- serves as an advocate for emerging concerns that affect church administrators;
- encourages and assists in the establishment of chapters of church administrators, within or across jurisdictional and annual conference boundaries, and assists in coordinating the program and work of these chapters.
The Virginia Chapter of PAUMCS was established in March 1999 at the Virginia United Methodist Conference Center in Blackstone. Since that time the membership of the Virginia chapter has grown to as many as 90 members and an all-time high of 130 attendees at a fall event at the Virginia United Methodist Conference Center. The chapter traditionally sponsors professional development training and events for spiritual enrichment.
