Stay or Go: Real Talk for United Methodists Exploring Their Future

Saturday, April 23, 2022, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

A Zoom webinar, titled "Stay or Go: Real Talk for United Methodists Exploring Their Future," will be held Saturday, April 23, from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

What will ministry for our local churches look like in the coming years, as the dust settles from our discussions and decisions regarding denominational separation? What will stay the same and what will change about ministry in the continuing UMC? What is the WCA’s vision for the Global Methodist Church? How will the logistics of each impact local churches and individuals?  

Join us for this discussion with panelists from UMNext and the Wesleyan Covenant Association as they answer your questions about their visions for ministry after separation.

Rev. Bill Brown will serve as moderator. Panelists will include:

  • Rev.  Ginger Gaines-Cirelli (UMNext, BWC)
  • Rev. Dr. Vicki Gordy-Stith (UMNext, Pen-Del)
  • Rev. Dr. Rudy Bropleh (WCA, BWC)
  • Rev.  David Bennett (WCA, Pen-Del)

Attendees are invited to submit questions to , and topics will be selected based upon those submissions. This webinar will be recorded for later viewing. 

This session will not address the process for disaffiliation or the history of how the UMC arrived at this point. For resources on those topics, please contact your district superintendent.
