#BeUMC | Learn More About The United Methodist Church



The mission of The United Methodist Church is to “Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” (Matt 28:18-20 & Matt 22:36-40) This mission is achieved through vital congregations that equip and empower people to be Disciples of Jesus Christ in their homes and communities around the world.

VitalSigns Dashboard Moving to NGUMC Data Services

On July 1, 2021, Vital Signs is becoming an "in-house" metric for the North Georgia Conference. In the past, local church Vital Signs have been reported to a United Methodist denomination platform, but in an effort to maximize efficiency, Vital Signs will transition to our conference Data Services. 

The new reporting dashboard is now available

The new dashboard is a simple, weekly four-question Vital Signs form. It is to be completed by the church pastor or their designee. Both pastor and designee will receive a weekly email as a reminder to report data. That email will come from support@ngumc.org. 

Vital Signs is a denomination-wide effort to help congregations follow their progress on goals that they set each year. This is a means to focus on fostering and sustaining an increase in the number of vital congregations effective in the mission of The United Methodist Church.
