The All-Star Church Recognition and Award Program

Honoring churches’ excellence in missions.
Sponosored by the Mission and Service Ministry Team (MSMT)

With the program, a church can be recognized for earning a minimum of three stars—and awarded as many stars as it sets its heart and hands to!

A church acquires "stars" by supporting selected United Methodist missional emphases and ministry opportunities within a calendar year.

  • Conference recognition will be given to churches that achieve a minimum of three stars.
  • Conference awards will go to churches that achieve a minimum of five stars.
  • Churches that report exceptional work in missions can receive additional Gold Star or Stellar Church awards.

The criteria for the program is reviewed annually by the MSMT and will periodically change, to reflect General Church and Conference emphases. Changes typically will be announced at the Annual Conference session prior to the year of implementation.

To apply for recognition or an award, a church must pay in full its conference and district Apportionments.

 For more information about the award program contact the chairperson. 

Applications for the All-Star award must be submitted to the Conference secretary of Global Ministries:
