The Future Discernment Task Force (FDTF) was formed in response to a resolution passed at the 2021 Session of the Texas Annual Conference. It was to be made up of diverse leaders from throughout the Annual Conference and caucus groups.

The original intent of this task force was to educate lay and clergy members of the Texas Annual Conference about upcoming legislation and denominational options being considered at the General Conference, scheduled for this year.

A library of resources and growing list of FAQs is on the Future Discernment Task Force webpage. It has videos at the bottom of the page that you can become familiar with previous meetings. Please take the time to become familiar with these resources

Presentations from Bishop Jones, a conference fiscal officer, future discernment task force team members, and video presentations with the information about the Global Methodist Church, other options for churches considering disaffiliation, and the United Methodist Church.
