General Conference 2024

Postponement of General Conference to 2024

Dear Friends,

Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Yesterday, March 3, 2022, the Commission on General Conference, a diverse group of clergy and laity in the United Methodist Church, announced that General Conference will be postponed until 2024 Statement. Any significant announcement such as this evokes many emotions. The commission stated that global vaccination issues and visa backlogs for delegates from Africa, Europe, and the Philippines as their primary reasoning for this decision. Other obstacles, such as translation challenges and limited internet capabilities in some areas, make it impossible to hold General Conference virtually. Our world changes so quickly and it causes the church to pivot and adapt, and I know this can be frustrating for everyone.  Bishop Schnase’s Letter
