Bishop Tracy S. Malone and the East Ohio Conference delegation invite laity and clergy to participate in a General Conference information webinar from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19.

The online webinar hosted on Zoom will provide information about the upcoming postponed 2020 General Conference to be held April 23-May 3 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Webinar viewers will be able to ask questions via the Q&A Zoom feature so that we are all more informed as we live into our shared vision for how we can fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

General Conference is the top policy-making body of The United Methodist Church. The assembly meets at the beginning of each quadrennium to consider revisions to church law, as well as adopt resolutions on current moral, social, economic, and public policy issues. It also approves plans and budgets for church-wide programs for the next four years.

Delegates from Africa, Europe, Asia, and the United States will be present in the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina for the postponed 2020 General Conference, which was not able to be held as scheduled in Minneapolis, Minnesota because of the pandemic.

The East Ohio Conference delegation to the General Conference in April is comprised of six clergy persons and six lay persons who were elected to serve by action of Annual Conference 2019.
