United Methodist Church General Conference 2020
April 23 – May 3, 2024

Please join in praying for The United Methodist Church throughout the General Conference. We invite you to pray for the outcome of the session that will be pleasing to God and will lead the church forward into a new season of renewal and growth. We invite you to pray for the delegates, the bishops, for the laity and clergy of our church, and for all whose lives will be impacted by the General Conference’s decisions. The Upper Room has prepared a prayer guide for use in the days preceding the conference - we invite you to use this resource as you pray for the upcoming General Conference.

- The budget report essentially says that the local church matters, and the budget is sufficient to carry out the mission. We will not be increasing apportionments.
- Regionalization was raised up by members from the Central Conferences and will allow us to decentralize and contextualize our ministries.
- Central Conference delegates are well-represented, actively participating, and hold committee leadership positions — disproving reports of disenfranchisement.
