Apportionments

What are apportionments?

Apportionments are our church's share of the total expenses of the Florida Conference and the UMC General Assembly.

How are apportionments calculated?

Each year the delegates to the Annual Conference approve a formula used to compute each local church's share of apportionments.

The current formula works like this:

For each church the expenses from three areas are totaled. The areas are compensation and benefits, operational items (utilities, postage, office supplies, yard care, maintenance, etc.), and program items (Sunday School materials, worship resources, etc.)

Take the total for each church and divide it by the total for all the churches in the Conference. This gives the fair-share decimal for each church.

Multiply each church’s fair-share decimal by the total amount of the budget(approved by Annual Conference delegates). This portion of the conference budget is each church’s fair-share.
