The National Leadership Team of The Free Methodist Church in Canada serves to aid local churches in developing healthy churches across Canada and beyond. Our Bishop is elected for a three year term by delegates to our General Conference which is held every three years. In consultation with our National Board of Administration the bishop hires other team members to help achieve our objectives.
The NLT members provide overseeing, coaching, empowerment and administrative services for local churches across the country.
In May 2017, delegates from across Canada elected Rev. Dr. Cliff Fletcher to his first term as the Bishop of The Free Methodist Church in Canada. Cliff has a great sense of where the FMCiC has been, it’s strong history, as well as its positive impact potential in Canada. This view of potential is driven by his desire to see spiritual growth in our movement. He believes that while we can build on our history we must be open to what God has for the FMCiC both today and into the future.
