The Conference Strategy Board (CSB) continues their work to develop and support new churches and ministries within our state. The CSB is currently financially supporting 17 churches. One such church is Zao MKE Church. Zao is an incredibly collaborative community wherein Pastor Jonah facilitates a gathering of people to, by their own strengths and unique skills, build and do church together.

The CSB has three tiers for the churches and ministries that they are working with. The 17 financially supported churches are Tier 1; however, there are 44 ministries/churches combined that are Tier 2 and Tier 3. These ministries will eventually be Tier 1 churches.

Since Annual Conference, there have been six new ministries/churches started that CSB is helping and may financially support in the future.
