From Bishop Gregory V. Palmer -

Paragraph 603.5 of The 2016 Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church outlines the provisions by which a Special Session of the Annual Conference may be called “by the bishop with concurrence of three-fourths of the district superintendents.”

Having the unanimous concurrence of the district superintendents, I am calling a Special Session of the West Ohio Annual Conference on Saturday, October 28, 2023, at 9:00 am at Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church, Tipp City, Ohio, for the following purposes: 

  • To act on the requests of churches to disaffiliate under the provisions of paragraph 2553 of The Book of Discipline.
  • To approve the requests for withdrawal of clergy.
  • To elect clergy and lay delegates to Jurisdictional Conference.
  • To approve the 2024 West Ohio Conference Budget. 
  • To act upon a recommendation being brought by the conference Trustees around West Ohio Camps. 

The Special Session of Annual Conference registration is now closed. Members of the Annual Conference who are not registered are still welcome to attend, however they will not be issued a voting device and we may not have a lunch available. There is not an option to attend virtually for this session.
