Bishops Amend Call for Special Session; Final Report Expected July 30
The Council of Bishops (COB) has amended its call for the Special Session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church, which will take place Feb. 23-26, 2019, in St. Louis, Mo.
The amended call now states “The purpose of this Special Session of the General Conference shall be limited to receiving and acting upon a report from the Commission on a Way Forward based upon the recommendations of the Council of Bishops.”
Additionally, the final report of the Commission on a Way Forward to the Special Session of the General Conference in 2019 will become available once it has been translated from English into the other three official languages of The United Methodist Church (French, Portuguese and KiSwahili), anticipated by July 30.
We will communicate more information about the upcoming Special Session of the General Conference as it becomes available.
