Oklahoma Annual Conference delegates now are studying a proposal to reduce, from 12 to eight, the number of districts.
They will vote on the recommendation May 29, final day of the 2014 Annual Conference, which meets May 26-29 in Oklahoma City. If approved, this change will become effective on June 1, 2015.
The one-year period will smooth transition to new structures, including district names and boundaries, administrative systems, personnel, and properties.
District Transition Teams, with equal lay and clergy representation, will collaborate with superintendents to make major strategic decisions prior to the implementation date. Superintendents will become more fully engaged as "key missional strategists."
The draft document can be viewed online at www.okumc.org/annual_conference. It also will appear in the Pre-Conference Workbook.
