Update on Annual Conference 2020
April 30, 2020
Bishop Leeland and the Cabinet have made the decision to postpone the Western North Carolina Annual Conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of our traditional three-day event, the decision has been made to hold a one-day Annual Conference session on the afternoon of Saturday, August 8 at Lake Junaluska.
The Ordering of Ministry Service where persons will be ordained, commissioned, and licensed for ministry will be held on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Stuart Auditorium at Lake Junaluska.
Additional details about the gathering and plans for the clergy session will be announced soon. Alternative options continue to be explored, in the event that restrictions on gathering remain in place through the summer months. Any updates will be communicated as decisions are made and finalized.
