2021 Annual Conference

The West Virginia Annual Conference program committee is pleased to announce that our theme for the quadrennium is "Building Bridges"

Because of COVID restrictions, we are making adjustments for our 2021 Annual Conference session, June 3-6, 2021. There are parts of annual conference which will be held only online.

In order to allow as many members as possible to participate with voice and vote, the registration deadline for our 2021 West Virginia Annual Conference session has been extended to April 16, 2021. To register visit our website: wvumc.orgAny member of the Annual Conference who wishes to have voice and vote must register by the April 16th deadline. 

Participation on Thursday, June 3 and Friday, June 4 is online. On Saturday, June 5 the business session will happen through a combination of in-person and online participation. Members who register have an opportunity to express a preference for either in-person or online attendance. Due to evolving health guidelines, seating will be limited.

Members who register for in-person participation will be contacted in May to be informed if their preference can be accommodated.  Sunday, June 6 the service of Ordination, Commissioning, and Recognition of Licensing will be in-person for those involved in the service. Other in-person attendance will be by invitation. All others are invited to participate via Livestream. 

Registration for clergy session will be sent to pastors in full connection and all pastors under appointment at a later time.
All who register by April 16 will receive credentials, and will have voice and vote no matter their form of participation. There will be no opportunity for last minute or onsite registration this year. Any member not registered by April 16 will be able to observe via Livestream, along with other non-voting participants.


There will be no housing options offered by WVWC this year. There will be no Children’s Conference.
