Our Western Jurisdictional Conference will be held at Christ United Methodist Church in Salt Lake City, Utah. As we gather in Utah, we will have traveled from the eastern edge of Colorado, the islands of Hawaii, Guam, and Saipan in the west, from Alaska in the north, from Arizona in the south, and all places in between to reach the middle of the Salt Lake region.

We gather to live out and model our Western Jurisdiction vision: A home for all God’s people, gathered around a table of reconciliation and transformation: the Western Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church is multicultural and inclusive, engaged in the life of its communities, with confident, effective lay and clergy leadership who, in diverse ministry settings, form disciples who live out the Good News of Jesus as global citizens. We gather Where Love Lives.

We gather to consider what values we share as a jurisdiction. We gather to celebrate the retirements of three of our bishops: Bishop Robert Hoshibata, Bishop Grant Hagiya, and Bishop Elaine Stanovsky. We gather to elect new bishops to serve in our jurisdiction. We gather to consider legislation that moves us toward living into our values and vision.

If you will be attending the Western Jurisdiction Conference in person, go to the registration page.

For security purposes, all who are in person at Christ UMC must have a registration name tag. Because of space restrictions in our plenary room, observers will be watching a video stream of the plenary sessions in the church sanctuary and will be able to interact with delegates and others during breaks and meals.
