Annual Conference 2023
More details on the Annual Conference 2023 will be available soon!
While we continue to offer online options for conference gatherings, the main sessions for each conference will allow for in-person attendance this year. Events with an option to attend in person are labeled as Hybrid below; each will include an online option, and GNTV will manage all voting (from participants attending in person or online). Online Only events are those where most members will participate over Zoom (as we did for most events last year). Livestreamed events will be viewed using a streaming platform (i.e., YouTube) and will not be interactive.?
A service of installation for Bishop Bridgeforth will be livestreamed on Saturday, May 20th. This will be the opening session for the GNW Area Conferences this year. All annual conference members and United Methodists across the area are encouraged to watch the livestream as we formally celebrate the bishop's assignment to the area.
Please also hold the following dates for your respective annual conference session(s), where clergy and lay members conduct the business of each conference. The physical location for each session will be announced in the coming weeks, as will more details about each conference’s individual schedules.
