If you have any questions about the disaffiliation of local churches on issues of human sexuality in Upper New York, contact Rev. Rich Barling at 315-430-4474 or Richard.email@example.com. Annual Conference Pension commitments have historically and are currently exclusively set on compensation. A pension ratio (ratio) was calculated by deviding the clergy compensation of each local church as of July 1, 2019 from the total clergy compensation of the Michigan Conference. This number of grades was then multiplied by the total uncovered adhesion to determine the right proportion of each church. The fair share set for July 1, 2019 should remain fixed throughout the disaffiliation period in order to create a fixed amount of responsibility for local churches considering disaffiliation. Yes. Once this decision has been made and all the conditions for disaffiliation are met, the decision is irreversible. . .
