GC2012 Rejects Constitutional Amendment on Set-Aside Bishop

4/30/2012

After a lengthy floor debate, the General Conference has rejected calendar item #219, which changes the UM constitution to allow for a non-residential bishop appointed as the president of the Council of Bishops.

The measure did not receive the 2/3 number of votes needed to approve a constitutional amendment.
