Meet those who represent you
Approximately 150 delegates attend the North Central Jurisdictional Conference. These elected representatives vote on your behalf and make decisions for the church.
These delegates were elected during the 2019 Annual Conference to represent our conference at the 2020 NCJ Conference. Since their term continues until the election of delegates to serve during the 2024 NCJ, these delegates represent the Michigan Conference at all gatherings of the NCJ.
The first elected delegates became the chairpersons of the delegation. Many of these delegates will be familiar to you, they attend General Conference as representatives as well.
Does every conference get the same number of delegates?
No, they do not. The delegates for the 2020 NCJ Conference are proportionately distributed among the annual conferences across the globe for general and jurisdictional conferences.
The Michigan Delegation to the 2020 NCJ is made up of 8 clergy and 8 laity. Four more persons (2 clergy and 2 laity) serve as alternate delegates to the Jurisdictional Conference. This 20-member Delegation was elected at the 2019 Michigan Annual Conference.
