General and Jurisdictional Delegates

Election as a delegate to General and Jurisdictional Conference is both an honor and a responsibility.

It is an honor because colleagues in ministry (both clergy and lay) have discerned in the delegates the gifts and graces needed to serve The United Methodist Church by helping it address a wide variety of issues which will affect the future of the denomination around the world.

It is a responsibility because delegates have committed themselves to serve in positions of leadership throughout the quadrennium.

Throughout this quadrennium there will be times for conferences, meetings, dialogue and debate and also times of prayer, discernment and study.
