Bishop Bryan and Task Force give General Conference update

11/18/2019

During the 2019 Annual Conference session, Bishop Bryan shared that the Leadership Forum Task Force would continue to meet throughout this year to provide updates to the Conference concerning the conversations going on in The United Methodist Church as preparations are made for General Conference 2020 in May. 

One possibility mentioned was a conference-wide gathering in November. To be good stewards of everyone’s time, Bishop Bryan and the Task Force have decided to release their update report in the form of a two-part video: Part 1 | Part 2

Last week, during the Leadership Forum’s fall meeting, the Task Force shared these videos with the full membership of the Leadership Forum. As the Task Force continues to meet, they will discern if a live stream event or an in-person, conference-wide meeting is warranted. At this point, the videos will serve to outline the work of the Task Force in considering all that is before the Conference.

“I hope that you will find these videos to be helpful as we stay calm, stay connected, and stay Alive Together in Witness,” Bishop Bryan said. “I am thankful to you for watching them and thankful to the Leadership Forum and the Task Force for helping us navigate the days and months ahead as we look towards General Conference 2020.”
