A Letter from the CA-NV Conference Delegation

December 18, 2018 | by

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As co-chairs of the California-Nevada Conference Delegation, we want to thank you again for the confidence you have placed in our delegation to represent the conference at the special called General Conference 2019 in St. Louis, MO, February 23 to 26, 2019.
Our delegation has been meeting monthly to prepare ourselves for the GC since September of 2017. We have invited caucuses of our conference for conversations to hear their thoughts on the various plans submitted by the Commission on the Way Forward. We have shared information among ourselves as we participate in other gatherings around the country and in other parts of the world. We are going through all the petitions submitted in the Advance Daily Christian Advocate (ADCA) as carefully as we can. We have spoken at various gatherings – circuits, caucuses, and local churches – to share our thoughts about the GC and the various plans going before it.
In the coming weeks, we will be working with our bishop and the cabinet to make ourselves available to speak at district and other gatherings as appropriate. We are available to speak to any local church.
Here is the list of the delegates who will be attending the GC 2019:
