2019 Annual conference
May 30 - June 2, 2019


What does it take to be a bold and effective leader these days? When you experience bold and effective leadership, what do you notice? When you’re trying to be a bold and effective leader, what do you try to “stir up” from within?  We think it takes wisdom...and heart... and courage to be the leaders God calls us to be as we strive to make disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Members of the new Michigan Annual Conference will gather for a time of fellowship, worship and legislating during the 2019 Annual Conference at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, Thursday, May 30 – Sunday, June 2, 2019.

This will be the first time the Michigan Annual Conference will meet as a new organization. On January 1, 2019 we became the Michigan Conference of The United Methodist Church.


Live streaming begins here Thursday, May 30 at 10AM EDT.
