2024 Annual Meeting Recap

Last week, the Minnesota Conference held its Annual Meeting at the College of St. Benedict, with many participants also joining along online. The theme of “Sacred Re-imagining” was woven throughout Annual Meeting in multiple ways.

Here are just a few highlights:

  • The Many brought worship leadership throughout the Conference, both in music and in liturgy.
  • Keynoter Tabitha Montgomery encouraged us all to ground our stewardship of our church buildings in the sacrificial spirit of the early church.
  • Transitional Conference Minister David Lindsey shared that the State of the Conference is hybrid, urging us to close the digital divide to be the Conference our leaders believe we are called to be.
  • The proposed bylaw change to create a standing committee dedicated to dismantling white supremacy was approved.
  • The search committee for the settled Conference Minister was introduced.
  • Reimagination grants helped our local congregations initiate new and creative ministries this past year.

Thank you to the hardworking committee, Conference staff, and others who made this Annual Meeting and its many workshops and trainings happen!
