The General Conference is the highest legislative body in The United Methodist Church. It is the only body that can speak officially for the denomination. The purpose of the Special Session of the General Conference is to act on a report from the Council of Bishops based on the recommendations of the Commission on a Way Forward. The 32-member Commission was appointed to examine paragraphs in The Book of Discipline concerning human sexuality and exploring options to strengthen the unity of the church.
