The Bishop has set the dates for the 2021 Virtual West Ohio Annual Conference to be on June 6, 2-6pm and June 7, 8:30am - 4:30pm.
We are currently seeking to fill our At-Large Lay Delegate Positions for the Miami Valley District.
We want to stress what the expectations/qualifications are for this important position in the life of our Conference, District and local churches and the consequences for the future. We are looking for leaders who have been active participants in their congregation and who are spiritually-minded. They must desire to represent not only the people of their local church but this region as well. We are looking for committed people who love Christ, others and in particular the United Methodist Church. The decisions made regarding recommendations and the election of delegates to General and Jurisdictional Conferences are crucial to our future together. If you sign up to be an At-Large Delegate then it is expected that you will attend the 2021 Virtual West Ohio Annual Conference barring some unforeseen emergency. We will create a waiting list just in case someone cannot attend.
We would love to see young people, Lay Supply pastors, lay folks involved in the candidacy process and key lay leaders in the local church commit to this task. We want to have a group of knowledgeable delegates who have taken the time to read and study the issues before us. We ask that you would pray and ask God if this is something you should do. Thank you!
If you would like to be an At-Large Delegate for this year's virtual annual conference, please complete the form below. I realize that some of you as recurring At-Large Lay Delegates have completed this form in the past, however, we are asking you to complete the form again this year. We appreciate your due diligence in this process. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the district office on their cell phone 937-869-4810.
