Judicial Council
The Holston Conference’s Bishop Mary Virginia Taylor embraces the Rev. David Graves following his election as United Methodist bishop at the 2016 Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference. Taylor is among the 11 U.S. bishops who retired last year, and Graves is among the bishops now taking on extra work because of the retirements. The Judicial Council issued a decision May 20, addressing the question of whether jurisdictional conference can meet to elect new bishops. File photo by Annette Spence, Holston Conference.

Ruling opens door for bishop elections in 2022

The United Methodist Church’s top court ruled that the Council of Bishops has the authority to call jurisdictional conferences to elect and assign new U.S. episcopal leaders but not to change the date when those new bishops take office.

Mission and Ministry
Farmers harvest rice in Pujehun, southern Sierra Leone in January. The farm is part of the Bishop Yambasu Agriculture Initiative, named in honor of late Bishop John K. Yambasu. During its virtual spring meeting, the United Methodist Board of Global Ministries approved $3.5 million to support the program’s agricultural projects. File photo by Phileas Jusu, UM News.

More church support for African agriculture

During a virtual meeting of United Methodist Global Ministries, church leaders voted to continue supporting the Bishop Yambasu Agricultural Initiative and other long-term priorities, such as global health, disaster response and migrant workers.
