National Conference Preview Meetings

Five in-person meetings and one online meeting will be held in early May to discuss the upcoming US National Conference (July 11-14 in Fort Wayne, Ind.). Bishop Todd Fetters will lead the meetings. These gatherings are open to anyone, but UB ministers and lay delegates are strongly encouraged to attend.

Attendees will get a preview of about 30 proposals for revising the United Brethren Discipline. A representative from the Human Reproduction Task Force will explain their proposals for revising the Discipline with statements on abortion, family planning, reproductive technologies, adoption, foster care, and related issues. The preview meetings will give people a first-look at the proposals and an opportunity to discuss them in advance of the business meeting on July 12.

For those who can’t attend one of the regional meetings, we’ll have a virtual meeting on May 15 via Zoom. You’ll receive a sign-in link before the meeting.
