UPDATE: GC 2019 pending move to fall 2022

August 29 - September 6, 2022

General Conference organizers announced that the denomination’s top lawmaking assembly — long postponed by pandemic — must wait to meet another year. The global gathering is now scheduled Aug. 29-Sept. 6, 2022, in Minneapolis.

In October 2021, the Commission on the General Conference named a technology team to look at virtual options for ensuring full participation. The team’s report outlined several challenges before such a conference.

Those hurdles include the 16-hour time difference between delegates who live in the Philippines and on the U.S. West Coast, the inequity of internet availability and the difficulty in safeguarding voting.

With the slow rollout of vaccines, continued travel restrictions and limitations of virtual technology, the commission is expected to announce if a full, 10-day session is possible this year either in-person or online. That announcement is expected in March 2022.

Aug. 29-Sept. 6, 2022, hundreds of delegates from around the world will converge on Minneapolis Minnesota for the General Conference.  At stake, may be the future of The United Methodist Church. 

Plans are well underway by the Host Team to showing you the best of what Minneapolis has to offer. Hundreds of volunteers are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to greet you, help you find your way around, and recommend places to explore and dine.  Visit the welcome website to learn more.

The Michigan Conference will be represented by a team of elected Clergy and Lay delegates who will vote on a series of measures that hopes to unite faithful United Methodists who differ on these issues, but agree on our mission as a denomination.  This site will provide you with accurate up-to-the-minute information, updates and resources you can use to follow this historic event.
