2016 Annual Conference

You are here

What is an Annual Conference Session? Each year—usually in June—all clergy members and an equal number of lay members selected from local churches within West Ohio attend the Annual Conference session to meet together to worship, fellowship, and conduct the business of the conference. During these sessions, members of the conference hear reports of past and ongoing work; adopt future goals, programs and budgets; ordain clergy members as deacons and elders; and elect delegates to Jurisdictional and General Conferences (every 4 years). The bishop presides over these meetings.
