A Word from Bishop Graves: The Release of Protocol Legislation

February 07, 2020
The next step related to General Conference 2020 is the release of the legislation from the Protocol of Grace and Separation team. That information was released today, February 7, 2020.
That information may be found here.
At this point, this is legislation that will be presented to the voting body of General Conference to be held May 5-15, 2020, in Minneapolis, MN.
There are still several steps that this legislation will undergo; such as approval from one annual conference and approval of the Judicial Council in April.
I invite you review this information. However, please remember only General Conference speaks for the United Methodist Church.
Let us all continue to pray for our delegates, our conference, our churches, our pastors and our laity during this uncertain time.
Bishop David Graves
Resident Bishop
Alabama-West Florida Conference
