Each year—traditionally in June for the South Georgia Conference—all clergy members and an equal number of lay members selected from the local churches attend their conference’s Annual Conference session and meet together to worship, fellowship, and conduct the business of the conference, which may last 3-5 days. During these sessions, members of the conference hear reports of past and ongoing work; adopt future goals, programs and budgets; ordain clergy members as deacons and elders; and elect delegates to Jurisdictional and General Conferences (every 4 years). The bishop presides over these meetings.
The 2019 South Georgia Annual Conference session will be held June 2-5, 2019, at the Columbus Georgia Convention & Trade Center
in Columbus, Ga.
All information related to the annual conference session will be posted on the conference website, www.sgaumc.org/annualconference
