Judicial Council

In June 1987, the North Carolina Annual Conference approved the following motion: that the delegates to General and Jurisdictional Conferences be required to submit a record of their voting on matters of ordination and other critical matters affecting the life of The United Methodist Church and that this record be distributed to pastors and churches through the first coordinated mailing following each of these conferences.
Judicial Council subsequently ruled: "An Annual Conference may not legislate a requirement that delegates to General and Jurisdictional Conferences submit a record of their voting in the General and Jurisdictional Conference to be distributed to pastors and churches in the Annual Conference. There is no authority for the action of the North Carolina Conference and it is declared null and void.
