General Conference 2016

Hello! This blog will cover my experiences at the General Conference of the United Methodist Church, taking place May 10-20 in Portland, Oregon. The UMC gathers every 4 years to make decisions that impact our denomination and our mission field. This global gathering includes 864 delegates (50% lay, 50% clergy), who will pray, worship, debate, argue, listen, speak up, lead and learn. In an organization as large, global and established as ours, change can be challenging; but we will seek to do faithful work, and pray God's blessings on our efforts.
Delegates from the Democratic Republic of Congo follow legislation in 2012,
as remarks are interpreted in their own language.

For much more information about GC2016, visit the Central Texas Conference Delegation's communications homepage. This is a curated site, which brings together a variety of perspectives from and about General Conference. You can also follow the live stream of plenary worship and meeting sessions. On social media, the official hashtag is: #umcgc.
