Moving Membership to The Florida Annual Conference

Lay persons wishing to move their membership to a new church should do so before the disaffiliation of their current church. Disaffiliation dates for 2023 are: June 1, September 1, and December 15. Those persons wishing to remain United Methodist but are uncertain of their new church home can offer their names to the General Church Roll for one year as they discern next steps.

Here is the link to register to transfer your membership to the general roll while you decide your next steps.

You will need to write an email or letter to the church and transfer your membership to The Florida Conference. Just a couple of sentences is all that is needed for the email/letter. Be sure to state you are transferring from your current church to The Florida Conference UMC General Roll.
