2553 Process (Disaffiliation)

What is the Disaffiliation Process? The 2019 Special Session of the General Conference of The United Methodist Church adopted a disaffiliation agreement allowing United Methodist churches to leave the denomination through the end of 2023 "for reasons of conscience regarding a change in the requirements and provisions of the Book of Discipline related to the practice of homosexuality or the ordination or marriage of self-avowed practicing homosexuals as resolved and adopted by the 2019 General Conference, or the actions or inactions of its annual conference related to these issues which follow.” The Conference Board of Trustees Process and the subsequent Disaffiliation Agreement follow ¶2553 of the 2019 Book of Discipline.
