General Conference 2024

GC 24 400x400 Homepage

The General Conference of The United Methodist Church is a key decision-making body that plays a crucial role in shaping the church's doctrine, policies, and social principles. Think of it as the highest legislative body, akin to a parliament or congress, where representatives from United Methodist congregations around the world gather every four years.

These representatives, called delegates, are both clergy and lay members. They worship together, join in discussions, and vote on various matters through a legislative process. Matters up for consideration can include changes to church law, adoption of new social principles, and resolutions on current moral, social, public policy, and economic issues. It's a forum where diverse voices come together to democratically shape the direction and policies of The United Methodist Church on a worldwide scale.

General Conference takes place from April 23 to May 3, 2024, in Charlotte, North Carolina (USA). We encourage you to visit the General Conference website for up-to-date news articles and resources from the organizers of the event itself.
