About the team:

At the GNJ Special Session in March, the GNJ Connectional Table created a GNJ Way Forward Team to identify and propose a plan to the Annual Conference Session by or before the May 2020 Annual Conference Session to include how GNJ will:

  1. support congregations in different contexts to be in ministry with the LGBTQI+ community respect and honor one another based on our theological and cultural differences,
  2. share our hopes and concerns with United Methodists around the world.

The team members include GNJ leaders of the Board of Laity, Board of Global Ministries, Board of Trustees, Board of Ordained Ministries, Connectional Table, Council for Finance and Administration, Local Ethnic Concerns Committee, Reconciling Ministries, United Methodist Men, United Methodist Women, Wesleyan Covenant Association and Youth Council.
