This year's event will be open to UM members only. Their focus is as follows:

SHARPEN YOUR VISION

Catch a leadership vision for a future that reflects a vibrant, vital, missional United Methodist Church — one that is passionately Wesleyan and authentically Christian, and is enthusiastic about drawing all people into relationship with Jesus Christ.

EXPLORE THE PATHS FORWARD

Learn about the latest opportunities and the potential impact on your local church from leaders who are currently charting various courses forward, including: staying and reforming our current structure, disaffiliating from the UMC to start something new, or dissolving the UMC to multiply into new Methodist expressions.

GUIDE CONVERSATIONS

Be equipped to lead difficult conversations, building consensus in your ministry context, as you seek to affirm the full participation in the church of people of all ages, nations, races, classes, cultures, gender identities, sexual orientations, and abilities.

LEAD A MOVEMENT

Leave prepared to lead a movement within your Annual Conference to win hearts and minds to the center and eliminate discriminatory language, restrictions and penalties in the UM Book of Discipline regarding LGBTQ persons.
