The regular 2020 session of the Pacific Northwest Annual Conference was held online on September 17, 2020.
In March, Bishop Elaine JW Stanovsky issued her call letter for the 2021 Annual Conference to be held again online in June with clergy (June 7) and laity sessions (June 9) early in the month and with individual and shared sessions from June 20-23, 2021.
Known clergy and lay members of the annual conference received registration information on April 9, 2021. The session will be livestreamed for guests with more details to be announced — no registration will be necessary to watch as a guest.
Guests of the Conference DO NOT need to register to access the livestream.

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!
If you have questions about the Annual Conference Session, please contact the Rev. David Valera, Exec. Director of Connectional Ministries.
The 2021 annual conference session will be held again online for members via Zoom. Access to a livestream for guests will be provided on this website.
