The 2016 Wisconsin Annual Conference voted this past summer to plan and implement a conference-wide Pre-Capital Campaign Feasibility Study to determine how to best move forward to fund future ministries in our conference. Preparations have been completed and we are now embarking on the public phase of our Feasibility Study entitled Make A-New Wisconsin.

Open Information Forums will be held in all Districts around the state from late January through the month of February. Individual interviews will also be a component of this phase. The purpose of the Open Information Forums is to present the proposed Case for Support Statement and initial plans for a potential financial campaign and receive your feedback. Your input and ideas are needed as we consider the best way to provide essential financial support to fund the initiatives God is calling us to live out. Every member and friend of this Conference are invited and encouraged to attend one of the Open Information Forums. Forums are scheduled to last about an hour.
