What will happen at General Conference 2021? This session of the official United Methodist lay speaker polity course may not yet have all the answers, but we’ll dig into the reports from GC 2019 to understand what it means for all of us, wherever our various congregations find ourselves going forward. Also, no matter where our churches find themselves, there will be defining Methodist principles which every daughter organization will surely carry forward. Why does Methodism do things the way it does? Why is our pastor being reassigned? Why don’t we get to vote on our new pastor? What are the rules for congregational operations and money management – and why are they the rules? And what does any of this have to do with trying to be a place and a people that embody the Kingdom of God? This course will help church leaders answer questions, help newcomers get their bearings, and help longtime members consider the specific structural challenges the church faces in the 21st Century.
