The General Conference is the top policy-making body of  The United Methodist Church, and meets once every four years to determine the denomination’s future direction, consider revisions to church law, and approve plans and budgets for church-wide programs. The 2020 meeting will take place May 5-15 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The conference can revise church law, as well as adopt resolutions on current moral, social, public policy and economic issues. It also approves plans and budgets for church-wide programs.
