The Global United Methodist Church Gathers

The United Methodist Church’s top legislative body will meet at the Oregon Convention Center, the largest convention center in the Pacific Northwest, on May 10-20, 2016.

General Conference is the top policy-making body of The United Methodist Church which meets once every four years.The conference can revise church law, as well as adopt resolutions on current moral, social, public policy and economic issues. It also approves plans and budgets for church-wide programs.

I will be serving as the clergy delegate from the Yellowstone Conference and the head of our delegation to GC2016.  This is a great honor and responsibility as we only get 2 voting delegates from all of the Yellowstone Conference(Montana, Northern Wyoming and a tiny part of Idaho). I hope you will follow along as we journey through General Conference this year and work with God to give direction to the Global United Methodist Church to share the message of God’s love.
