The 2024 Western Jurisdictional Conference will be held in the Greater Northwest Area on July 10-13, 2024. As we gather 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, celebrate retirements, elect new bishops to serve in our jurisdiction, and consider legislation that moves us toward living into our values and vision.
