Program areas at Good News

Good News publishes a printed magazine and maintains a website, www.goodnewsmag.org. The goals of the print and electronic media publications are to inform, educate and encourage united methodists about challenges and successes regarding preserving and renewing Scriptural Christianity within the united methodist church.
Renewal and reform, renew network, and transforming congregations network are the central programs of Good News, whose general activities promote renewal and reform within the united methodist church (umc). The goal of these programs is to promote a biblically grounded and spiritually alive umc.
Good News participates in the governance process of the united methodist church (umc) to advocate and act as a catalyst for preserving official umc doctrine and practice that is consistent with traditional Scriptural Christianity. Primary umc governance processes in which Good News participates are multiple general boards and annual conferences and the general conference of global methodism. Changes to official umc doctrine and practice are voted on at general conference, which is held every four years. Given its impact, much of Good News' activity and resources each year are in support of general conference.
