Employment in and by the Church is substantially different from secular employment. Church employees must conduct themselves in a manner consistent with and supportive of the mission and purpose of the Church. Their public and online behavior must reflect Christian values. This position does not require that the employee be a United Methodist. It is expected that all employees respect United Methodist doctrine and religious practices. Reasonable accommodation for the religious practice of employees who are not members of the United Methodist Church will similarly be provided.
