UPDATE MARCH 19: General Conference has been postponed.

From the news release: The Executive Committee of the Commission on the General Conference has been notified by the Minneapolis Convention Center that they are restricting events at the venue through May 10, 2020, following recommendations by the Minnesota Department of Health, the Governor of Minnesota and the Mayor of Minneapolis to postpone or cancel events involving 50+ people in order to slow the spread of coronavirus.

As a result of this decision, the Executive Committee is announcing that the General Conference will be postponed and will not occur May 5-15, 2020 as planned. Read full release



Bishop Michael McKee greets the newly elected delegates, including Kelly Carpenter and Cammy Gaston.

Every four years, the members of the North Texas Annual Conference elect delegates that will represent them at

  • General Conference: May 5-15, 2020 in Minneapolis ... POSTPONED
  • Jurisdictional Conference:  July 15-18, 2020 in The Woodlands, Texas



As you may (or may not) know, delegates, especially alternate delegates, are committed to pay for travel expenses out-of-pocket not only for General Conference and Jurisdictional Conference, but to any national or regional pre-briefing meetings for these conferences. To remain the most informed delegation, it is imperative that all 23 delegates have the opportunity to attend all meetings that we can. We believe that financial burden should never be the cause of a delegate being unable to participate fully, therefore, we call upon the North Texas Conference to help us start a fund for our current 2020 delegation travel expenses and for the travel expense of our delegations in the future.
