A Special Called Session of the North Central Jurisdictional Conference was called on Nov. 10-11, 2021. It took place virtually. Delegates from each conference were part of the official Zoom meeting, and others were able to watch it live on this page, which now links to the recording of the session. Below is a detailed agenda for the two days (times listed are for the Central Time zone). The three big topics of conversation were: dismantling racism, episcopal leadership, and the future of The United Methodist Church.
