Rev. Cassie Rapko

The General Board of Church and Society is leading a process to revise the Social Principles of The United Methodist Church. A full review of the Social Principles has not occurred since the 1968-1972 quadrennium, when the first Social Principles document was proposed. Since that time, numerous additions have been made and wording has changed. All of this has a resulted in a document that is in need of comprehensive updating.

The final document will be considered at the 2020 General Conference of The United Methodist Church in Minneapolis. As a part of this process, we are soliciting feedback from Annual Conferences so that we can perfect the draft document. To do this we invite you to a public conversation on the draft of the revised Social Principles.

Find a copy of the entire draft of the revised Social Principles at this link on the Church and Society webpage: www.umcjustice.org/sp2020
