All Indiana Conference active clergy have been given an e-mail address to use by the conference. All United Methodist clergy in Indiana need to activate this address. Most e-mail addresses have the same format, consisting of first name dot last name @ and, according to the Indiana Conference Center, need to be activated by the first of the year 2011.

Any retirees wishing to have an e-mail address may register for one by calling the Indiana Conference Center toll-free at 877-781-6706 and asking for Heidi or e-mail her at

This will be the only e-mail address the Indiana Conference Center and District Centers will use to communicate with active clergy.

For that reason, Bishop Mike Coyner and the Cabinet encourage all active clergy to activate and use the e-mail address.

Set up for the address is fast and easy, and the e-mail can be re-directed or forwarded to another current e-mail account.

To activate an Indiana Conference e-mail account, go to and use your firstname.lastname as the user ID. The password for the first time is inumc2010. You will be prompted to change the password.

If you wish to forward this e-mail to an existing account, go to “Settings” and then “Forwarding.” For answers to questions about clergy e-mail addresses, contact the Indiana Conference Center at 317-924-1321 or toll-free at 877-781-6706.
