4/1/2019

The South Georgia Conference will elect its delegation to the 2020 General and Jurisdictional Conferences during the 2019 Annual Conference Session in Columbus, Ga., June 2-5.

Four (4) clergy and four (4) lay delegates to General Conference will be elected. An additional four (4) clergy and four (4) lay delegates will be chosen to complete the Jurisdictional Conference delegation. Alternates will also be elected.

Those who are interested in declaring their interest in serving as delegates are encouraged to read the information on this page and complete the appropriate form. The forms are a means for candidates to share information that allows members of the annual conference to make informed decisions.

The General Conference is the global gathering of The United Methodist Church where mission and ministry priorities are established and The Book of Discipline is reviewed for possible revisions. The General Conference is the policy setting body of United Methodism. The 2020 General Conference will be held May 5-15 in Minneapolis, Minn.

The Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference meets July 15-18, 2020, in Lake Junaluska, N.C., to coordinate the connected ministry and mission of the region and to elect and assign Bishops for leadership in the Church.

The 2005 session of the South Georgia Annual Conference established a policy on elections in an effort to “create a level playing field and be fair with all potential candidates.” This policy was revised at the 2014 session of the South Georgia Annual Conference and can be found online at www.sgaumc.org/policies.
