The 2017 Annual Conference is over and done. Two Conference Journals will tell the official story.

Here’s how to get your copy of the 2017 Detroit Conference and West Michigan Conference  journals …


The distribution/ordering process for the 2017 Detroit Annual Conference Journals will be different this year than in the past. This change is effective for congregations, individual persons, and DAC agencies and committees.

If your DAC Journal has typically arrived in the mail without having ordered it, beginning this year you will need to order your 2017 Journal. There are two exceptions: retirees and surviving spouses of clergy memorialized at annual conference will be mailed a free copy of the 2017 DAC Journal. The Journal Committee will cover the cost for printing and shipping for current retirees and surviving spouses.

All others must order their copy(s) of the  2017 Journal online. Upon ordering, the cost for the Journal(s) will be paid by the individual, the agency, or the local church.

Orders for the 2017 DAC Journal will be placed online from ‘CreateSpace,’ an Amazon company. When the Journal is ready to order, a link will be made available here. Each Journal will cost around $10, which covers shipping.



Clergy, churches and lay members to Annual Conference are responsible for ordering their own journal when it becomes available. Members of the Committee on Nominations and Committee on Rules will receive a Journal, no order is necessary.

West MI Conference Retired Clergy and Surviving Spouses are entitled to receive one free journal. Please pre-order and the West MI Conference Staff will place your order. You’ll receive your copy in the mail. Retired Clergy and Surviving Spouses click HERE to pre-order the 2017 Journal.

The 2017 West Michigan Conference Journal is not available for purchase yet. When the Journal is ready to order, a link will be made available here.
