Why would you need information on this Commission?
The Commission was proposed by the Council of Bishops and approved by the 2016 General Conference to do a complete examination and possible revision of every paragraph of the Book of Discipline concerning human sexuality and explore options that help to maintain and strengthen the unity of the church. The special 2019 General Conference – set for February 23-26, 2019 in St. Louis – will attempt to find a way forward for The United Methodist Church by considering three different plans. Come to learn the Bishop’s recommendations for moving the United Methodist Church forward as a unified church.
