Nichea VerVeer Guy and other United Methodist Women share their hopes for General Conference.
Being a delegate at General Conference is hard—and important—work.
The United Methodist Church General Conference is held every four years to re-examine church law and to add or amend resolutions to the Book of Discipline. Some 1,000 delegates travel to General Conference from around the world to examine and discuss these proposed changes. The delegates are instrumental when it comes to deciding which resolutions are to be adopted or amended.
Annette Apitz spoke with four United Methodist Women delegates to find out how they prepared for this significant task, and what their thoughts were about General Conference and the petitions submitted by United Methodist Women. Nichea Ver Veer Guy, chair of the West Michigan Delegation to General and Jurisdictional Conferences is among them.
