In case this is your first time encountering the Annual Conference, ¶ 601 of The United Methodist Book of Discipline defines "the purpose of the annual conference is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by equipping its local churches for ministry and by providing a connection for ministry beyond the local church; all to the glory of God."
While much of our connectional work happens throughout the course of the calendar year, this important meeting in the life of the PNWAC helps us to remember where we've been, reorient ourselves to each other, and set a course moving into the future together; all to the glory of God!
