RECOMMENDED ACTION: Affiliation with the Global Methodist Church
Denominational discernment included a rigorous assessment of options, including several other Methodist denominations and independent network affiliations. After careful consideration, the TWMC discernment leadership team is recommending affiliation with the Eastern Texas Conference of the Global Methodist Church (GMC).
As a start-up denomination, the GMC offers the truest expression of Wesleyan Methodism while also offering TWMC the greatest opportunity to contribute to its growth in meaningful and long-lasting ways. Recognizing this historic moment in the life of the church, the discernment leadership team seeks to advance its mission in ways that are mutually fruitful for both TWMC and the GMC.
