News to Know: General Conference 2019
A Special Session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church will be held February 23-26 in St. Louis. The General Conference is made up of 864 delegates (half lay and half clergy) from around the world. Forty percent of delegates are from outside the United States. The Florida Conference is represented by nine clergy and nine lay delegates.
Please pray for our delegates, as the purpose of this General Conference is to receive and vote on a report from the Commission on a Way Forward along with other legislation. The Commission on a Way Forward was formed by the 2016 General Conference and asked to find a way forward for the church that would move us beyond the current impasse related to human sexuality.
