Resolutions to General Conference

The FMCIC desires to be the best kind of servant organization it can be.  From time to time, Resolutions to the General Conference submitted by ministers and lay delegates – individually or on behalf of congregations, have prompted innovations that have led to strategic improvements. 

This is a reminder that we are coming into the season when Resolutions to the General Conference need to be prepared.  The deadline is December 30, 2023.  If you have something on your mind that you would like to submit to the General Conference, please click the links below to access the forms in WORD and PDF.

The Manual of The Free Methodist Church in Canada mandates that … “any society or individual member of a local society shall have the right to submit resolutions to the General Conference and to have them fully heard.  These must be introduced by a member of the General Conference and are subject to the rules of that body” (Par 410.5).  The Study Commission on Doctrine acts as the General Conference Committee on Resolutions to evaluate and give direction for processing resolutions.

Deadline:  All Resolutions must be submitted by December 30, 2023.

Format:  Resolutions are best understood when supporting rationale is provided. For this reason, please outline your Resolution using the formal “whereas….therefore” format of Roberts Rules of Order.
