So The World Will Know - Proposed Constitution

Excerpts from article written by Walter B. Fenton

[In March of 2024], the Global Methodist Church’s Transitional Leadership Council (TLC) voted to propose a constitution to the denomination’s convening General Conference, scheduled to meet in San Jose, Costa Rica, September 20-26, 2024.
During its transitional season, the GM Church has functioned without a constitution. Its transitional leaders believed only a convening General Conference composed of duly elected delegates would have the right to approve such a document, ensuring its legitimacy so that the Church’s members would embrace it and abide by it.

“We want to be clear, the TLC is proposing a constitution for the Church, not imposing one upon it,” said Cara Nicklas, the chairwoman of the GM Church’s Transitional Leadership Council.
The proposed constitution can be read in approximately 20 minutes. The Transitional Leadership Council encourages Global Methodist Church members to read it alongside part one of the Transitional Book of Doctrines and Discipline and the Church’s “A Catechism of the Christian Faith and Doctrine in the Wesleyan Tradition.” The Catechism in a booklet format can be ordered from Seedbed Publishing.
