Each summer a number of North Georgia Conference clergy pack their belongings and make the move to their next appointment. To make coordination easier, an official "move day" is set by the Conference.
Beginning in the summer of 2020, the Conference launched a new pattern for moves.
The last Sunday in June is the final Sunday of a moving pastor's current appointment. The following Tuesday is "Move Day." The first Sunday of July is a Sunday off. The first day at the new appointment will be the first business day after July 4. The clergyperson's first Sunday preaching will be the first Sunday after July 4.
In 2022, the schedule is:
Annual Conference 2022
June 2-4, 2022 (Thursday-Saturday)
Moving Clergy's Last Sunday
Sunday, June 26, 2022
Tuesday, June 28, 2022
(churches receiving a new pastor will fill this Sunday with a guest preacher)
Moving Clergy's First Day at New Appointment
Tuesday, July 5, 2022

Clergy, be sure to visit the Benefits page for moving pastors at www.ngumc.org/moving and the Clergy Excellence information for moving pastors at www.ngumc.org/movingpastorspage.
This schedule was created by the Center for Clergy Excellence in consultation with a diverse group of clergy and with the approval of the 2019 Annual Conference Clergy Executive Session.
