Seeing a Way Forward – Part 5: Connectional Conference Plan


This video is a brief summary of the Connectional Conference plan that will be considered by the February 2019 General Conference. In two places in this video you will see the word Connectional Conference appear at the bottom of the screen. In these two places Bishop Ball meant to say Connectional Conference rather than Central Conference. To clarify: In the Connectional Conference plan the Central Conferences outside the U.S. would become Connectional Conferences identified by the region or country served. Additionally, there would no longer be geographically defined Jurisdictional Conferences in the U.S. – but rather U.S. Connectional Conferences defined by Theological stance. Bishop Sandra Steiner Ball is the resident bishop of the West Virginia Conference, she is also one of the three moderators of the UMC Commission on a Way Forward.
