The bishops will begin their assignments at the organizational meeting of each agency or board after the 2020 jurisdictional and central conferences.

UMC agencies provide resources and services that equip local congregations and provide a connection for ministry throughout the world. The agencies also provide essential services and ministries beyond the scope of individual local congregations and annual conferences.

Each agency is governed by a board of directors whose members, both lay and clergy, are elected by jurisdictions and central conferences. Bishops, as assigned by the Council, also share oversight on these boards.
