2021 Business Session
The Business session will be held Thursday morning, July 15. We will allow 3 hours for the Thursday morning business session.
Every UB church can send at least one layperson as a voting delegate, and most actively-serving UB ministers also have voting status. The requirements are spelled out in ¶503 of the UB Discipline.
Lay Delegates. The formula is based on average attendance in 2020: one lay delegate for the first 150 persons, and an additional delegate for each 100 persons after that.
Clergy Delegates. Ministers are eligible if they hold a Specialized Minister or National Conference license, and are employed by a United Brethren church in the US National Conference. That covers most ministers. A few other requirements are spelled out in ¶503.1.
