Formed by the 2004 General Conference, the Connectional Table’s role is to serve as both the visioning body of the church and the steward of resources to carry out the vision of the denomination worldwide.

After GC2019, Connectional Table’s work continues
The Rev. Kennetha Bigham-Tsai, chief connectional ministries officer for the Connectional Table, said that regardless of the decisions made at the special 2019 General Conference, the Connectional Table will continue to focus on the worldwide nature of the denomination and local church vitality.

Is the church “stuck” on one issue?
“Being stuck is a choice,” says the Rev. Kennetha Bigham-Tsai, chief connectional ministries officer for the Connectional Table. She hopes that even if the church is stuck, there are mechanisms in the institution to get it unstuck.
