Shaping Our Future

Any organization, clergy member, or lay member of the Global Methodist Church has the right to submit a petition for consideration at the convening General Conference.

Each petition must pertain to a single issue, unless the Transitional Book of Doctrines and Discipline is impacted. In such cases, the petition must address only one paragraph of theTransitional Book of Doctrines and Discipline unless multiple paragraphs are closely related and a change in one affects the others. In these instances, the petition may call for the amendment of all related paragraphs to ensure consistency.

Petitions that deal with multiple paragraphs and do not meet these criteria will be deemed invalid. Composite petitions that meet these criteria will not be separated into smaller parts. If you have any questions regarding the petition process or need further assistance, please contact our Petition Secretary, Rev. Lamar Oliver.

If you have any questions regarding the petition process or need further assistance, please contact our Petition Secretary, Rev. Lamar Oliver.

NOTE: The Convening Conference Legislation Form does not yet provide built-in language translation, but we hope to have that feature available in the future.  If you prefer to submit a petition using a language other than English, please consider using the built-in translation feature available in your web browser as an interim solution. Below are links to instructions for using each browsers’ translation functionality.
