    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    Regional gatherings with Bishop Webb following Special Session (The Way Forward)

    Special Session of General Conference (The Way Forward)

    We do not know what to expect at the 2019 Special Session of General Conference (The Way Forward) that's taking place Feb. 23-26 in St. Louis, MO. This uncertainty can be uncomfortable. Whatever the outcome, our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world will continue. There may be a new reality that we will have to acclimate to so that we can continue to fulfill our mission as United Methodists.

    Bishop's Regional Gatherings After Special Session

    Upper New York Area Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb invites you to attend a clergy gathering and/or one of six regional gatherings happening this March. These gatherings will include a time of worship, prayer, and Bishop Webb’s explanation of decisions and actions that took place at Special Session.
