The purpose of the Clergy Orders Gathering is to:

  • Offer current, unbiased information on the proposals from the Commission On A Way Forward to the Special General Conference in February 2019.
  • Learn and experience having difficult, yet grace-filled conversations concerning human sexuality issues in the United Methodist Church.
  • Present clergy with the tools and experience of participating in a process of constructive conversation that might be used within their own ministry setting.
  • Share information – not necessarily changing peoples’ minds or positions.
