RENEW Reports and Analyses
RENEW regularly reports on various topics related to the United Methodist Church, particularly concerning the Women's Division, the governing body of United Methodist Women. RENEW sends a press representative to the semi-annual board meetings of the Women's Division (held in the spring and fall) and submits a report pertaining to actions, financial matters, and policy initiatives of the Division. RENEW also sends a team to other Women's Division sponsored events including the UMW Assemby and the National Seminar. These reports provide information to women at the local, district, and conference level concerning the programs and policies of the Women's Division from an orthodox, evangelical perspective.
