  • Conversation Matters

    The Future of the United Methodist Church

    Sunday, February 25th at 5:00 pm

    Asbury Hall

    In February 2019 United Methodists from around the world will convene for a called General Conference in St. Louis, MO. The church's top lawmaking body will act on a report by the Council of Bishops based on proposals from the Commission on the Way Forward. What happens as a result could profoundly affect the future of the church.

    Wil Cantrell, who serves as an associate pastor at Concord UMC in Farragut is a General Conference delegate who recently authored a book called Unafraid and Unashamed: Facing the Future of United Methodism.

    For the February Conversation Matters event, Wil joins us for a candid conversation on what the upcoming General Conference means for the denomination and what it means to be a United Methodist.
