Every four years, the members of the North Texas Annual Conference elect delegates that will represent them at General and Jurisdictional Conferences. Nominations are now open for those interested in filling one of the delegate spots available for laity and clergy. The online nominations process will close 4 p.m. Friday, April 19.
All nominations received will be vetted before they are included on the final ballot, to be voted on at the North Texas Annual Conference (June 2-4, 2019, at Christ UMC Plano). In addition to completing the nomination form, the following criteria, according to The Book of Discipline, must be met to be considered:
Lay Delegation: Professing members of The United Methodist Church for at least two years and active participants in The United Methodist Church for at least four years. There is no age requirement as long as membership and participation requirements are met.
Clergy Delegation: All clergy members in full connection (Full Elders and Full Deacons).
