More than 20 United Methodist conferences use the United Methodist Reporter as their conference publication. In a conference edition of the United Methodist Reporter, the outer section tells stories of mission and ministry in that particular annual conference; the inside section informs people of the diverse ministries of the United Methodist Church throughout the world.
Our staff works closely with conference editors to ensure that design, production and distribution all run smoothly. We watch for content, too: A story in a conference edition may spark interest with a wider audience and be picked up by the Reporter national edition.
“Partnering with UMR on our annual conference edition has raised communication with our readers to a new and exciting level. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.”
--Martha Taylor, director of communications for the Arkansas Conference UMC“The Iowa Conference edition of the Reporter is eagerly anticipated by the 7000 people/households that receive the paper. The mix of our local news and tie to denomination, nation, and world really helps to connect Iowa’s United Methodists.”
--Art McClanahan, director of communications for the Iowa Conference UMC
