    General report by the Protocol Commission

    February 15, 2022 / By UNY Communications

    During the Upper New York (UNY) Annual Conference held virtually in June of 2021, the body passed Resolution UNYAC2021.7 which created a Study Commission to examine the readiness in the UNYUMC for the Implementation of the Protocol of Reconciliation and Grace Through Separation. This commission is composed of the Conference Treasurer, Dean of the Cabinet, Conference Chancellor, Director of Connectional Ministries, Director of Vital Congregations and representatives of the Committee on Finance and Administration, Board of Ordained Ministry, Board of Trustees, Board of Pensions and Health Benefits, General and Jurisdictional Conference Delegations, and up to three persons named by Nominations and Leadership Development.

    The Study Commission met via Zoom several times and created two surveys for both Clergy and Congregations. The surveys were transmitted to congregations and clergy via District offices and District Administrative Assistants.

    The Study Commission has completed their report with observations of the surveys and the survey results. Click here to access the report.
