Redistricting Proposal


The Missouri Conference Mission Council has voted unanimously to recommend that the Missouri Conference reduce the number of districts from nine to five beginning July 1, 2022. A proposal will be brought to annual conference, June 12-13, in Springfield, for consideration by clergy and lay voting members.
