On July 31, 2022 a historic decision was made by the members of Nashville United Methodist Church to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church with a resounding 94.6% vote.
On August 1, 2022 the members of NUMC gathered in worship, feasted at the table of the Lord’s Supper, and entered into discussion concerning joining the Global Methodist Church or becoming an independent church. The church spoke with a unanimous voice in favor of joining the Global Methodist Church.
On September 14, 2022 our church gathered to vote on our new church name. After hearing from 4 members of our church about different name options, church members voted. The results of the vote determined that our church will be Nashville Methodist Church.
At this time, we will continue to be Nashville United Methodist Church. On November 19th, the NC UMC Annual Conference will gather to vote to release our church from the UMC. Please be in vigilant prayer for that vote.
More details and a timeline will be released with information on the name transition.
Global Methodist Church
"Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who worship passionately, love extravagantly, and witness boldly.
In our worship, we desire to surrender to and be fully devoted to one God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are passionate about what is important to God.
Jesus calls those who follow Him to love God wholeheartedly and love their neighbors as themselves. Our desire is to demonstrate to the world the extravagant love of God in the person of Jesus Christ.
We have been entrusted with a lifesaving and transforming message that we must share with others. Our witness is bold, compelling and fearless. Our mission advances when individuals become disciples of Jesus Christ and join God’s mission to make more disciples."
