Southern District States

The Southern District is comprised of 41 churches in the states of:


The Southern District Conference (SDC) is excited about Christ, excited to see people come to Christ and are excited about building communities that are driven by Christ’s love. Because Jesus has commissioned the church to make disciples, the SDC churches partner with one another to:

  • Cultivate vital congregations for the sake of their witness and mission in the world.
  • Ignite church planting partnerships that will multiple SDC efforts and create a passion for church planting, even among churches that are located where planting opportunities are minimal or nonexistent.
  • Mobilize world-engaging generations by providing opportunities for all ages to engage one another, their culture and the mission of the church.

This two-hour business session will begin at 10:00 am and conclude when we have finished reporting and conducting the necessary SDC business.

The agenda will include:

  • Reports from Commissions (electronic copies of written reports will be available one week prior to the event)
  • Leadership elections
  • Budget approval
  • Bylaw revision (name correction)

Questions and answers will be coordinated in real time and votes tabulated online. Directions on how to connect to the video stream and how to engage with questions will be available soon.

Local Church Participation
The vision for this virtual meeting is that churches gather as many of their members, and especially leadership teams, as possible to participate as a group using their local church facilities as a gathering place. SDC will not be broadcasting a worship segment so that leaves each church free to have a time of worship immediately prior to the streamed meeting. We suggest churches gather their congregation at 9:30 am and provide a 20-25 minute worship segment prior to starting the live stream meeting at 10:00 am.

SDC bylaws allow for one voting delegate per 25 members for each church. Please designate who your voting delegates will be and remind them that they are delegates and eligible to vote on issues brought before the convention for decision.
