Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

It’s time for us to lean into the future and discern what God is calling us to in the next season of our life together in Christ as the New Mexico Conference.

To this end, I 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  

Let’s enter this next season with joy, anticipation, and a commitment to pray and work together as we discern God’s will for us in the months and years to come. I look forward to these important gatherings and I hope to see you there. Thank you.

Yours in Christ,

Robert Schnase, Bishop of the New Mexico Conference
