Great Plains Annual Conference News

Delegates to the South Central Jurisdictional Conference unanimously approved the creating of the Great Plains Annual Conference by the union of the Kansas East Annual Conference, the Kansas West Annual Conference, and the Nebraska Annual Conference. Even though the plan had been previously approved by all three annual conferences, it had to be formally approved Jurisdictional Conference.

Bishop Scott Jones (our current bishop) has been assigned to the Great Plains Episcopal Area (which consists of Kansas and Nebraska, just like the new conference will). Kansas East, Kansas West, and Nebraska will continue as three separate annual conferences for the time being with a uniting conference in 2013.
