This time together will be an opportunity for the West Virginia Conference to hear directly from Bishop Steiner Ball as The United Methodist Church navigates a way forward that honors our Lord and help us fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

The agenda will include: devotional time, sharing the outcomes of the 2019 General Conference, and exploration of how the decisions made will impact our local churches.  The priority for us in these gatherings will be to remember that we are called to continue to move together in order to fulfill our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
