General Conference 2022: Your Input Needed!

2022 GC Be TransformedGlobeWe Need Your Input!

As the Covid-19 Pandemic continues, and the world is reshaping itself over and over, we want to hear your honest opinions about how you hope to attend Global General Conference 2022.

We were hoping to launch registration this week, but find ourselves at a fork in the road, wondering if we should shift to an all-online Conference or do our best to continue with the plan of having a global multi-site conference, which will also include an online option.

MCC is an amazing, creative movement, so we trust that even if we go to an all online conference, local congregations, friends, and networks will still meet in a way that can be more adaptive and flexible as the time comes closer.

Help us know which direction to go, by filling out a very short survey! Survey closes in one week!!

Pray With Us

Like many of you making decisions for your congregations and worshipping communities, we invite you to join us in prayer as we make these decisions on behalf of the denomination. We know the Spirit will lead us all, let us have the ability to listen.

If you or your congregation will be praying with us, let our Moderator know! [email protected]

Creator God,

You called MCC into being. You raised up your people all over the world to share the good news of your inclusive steadfast love. We love to come together to praise you, to worship and sing together, learn from each other and share ideas, laugh, dream and make decisions together, as one Universal Fellowship. May your Spirit guide our Moderator, Governing Board, MCC staff and volunteers, as we discern how best to do these things that we love in these uncertain times. You have equipped us with all that we need to be creative, resourceful and innovative. We trust in you, as we try new ways of being a global community. In Jesus’s name we pray. Amen.


Reminder of Conference Structure

Currently, this Global General Conference will take place in two phases:

To begin, our Global General Conference Kick-Off Weekend will take place at locations around the world in-person and also online from 1-3 July 2022.

The second part of our Global General Conference will be the Business Meeting and will take place online from 15-16 July 2022.

Read more about the basic features of each part of conference here.

More Information Coming Soon!

We will take a couple of weeks to discern the direction (hopefully for the last time!) before emailing out information on Registration.

Thank you for your continued patience and prayers. We know the Spirit is moving and are so grateful to be in such an amazing movement with you as we navigate this ever-changing world.
