A Gathering with Bishop Schnase

Bishop Schnase will be hosting two gatherings in the New Mexico Conference:

Thursday, February 8th at 6:00 pm MT at Central UMC-ABQ
Saturday, February 10th at 10:00 am MT at Western Hills UMC-El Paso

During our time, we will share in worship. I will address some of the resolutions and topics that are likely to come before General Conference 2024 in April and decisions to be made at Jurisdictional Conference in July. I look forward to sharing information and hearing the questions that you may have. We'll distribute notecards prior to the presentation to gather and compile questions.

If you have any questions about these events, please contact my Administrative Assistant, Alli Newsom at
