The Great Plains Annual Conference

We just received the results of the vote to merge the Kansas East, Kansas West, and Nebraska Annual Conferences and create a new Great Plains Annual Conference on January 1, 2014. All three conferences, voting independently, approved the new annual conference, by a wide margin. The results of this vote will be far-reaching for all three annual conferences. Within the local church the effects will also be far-reaching, but probably not directly noticeable.
