Did you know that the Western Jurisdictional Conference meets every four years, but only comes to our Conference once every 20 years and that the next times it will be here will be this coming July 13 and then not again until 2036?
What is the Western Jurisdictional Conference? It’s a gathering of our elected and appointed United Methodists from around the Western United States who meet every four years to provide leadership and especially to elect the next bishop in the West. If you have ever wondered how someone becomes a United Methodist bishop, this is your closest chance to witness the process! Could this be the year that one of our own clergy is elected bishop? Could this newly elected bishop one day be appointed to our conference? Come to Scottsdale, AZ, and experience it.
As the Desert Southwest Conference, it is our pleasure to not only host but to provide hospitality for the entire conference. Let’s show the West what extravagant hospitality really looks like!
