June 21-24: Celebrate ordination of Rev. David Ko, commissioning of Pastor Jon Visitacion!
In our UnitedMethodist denomination each conference holds its annual gathering to deliberate and make decisions over conference issues and matters that direct all local churches and conference staff, and committees and commissions within each conference.
Among all that takes place, at Annual Conference we hear reports of various conference ministries, celebrate ministries, honor clergy retirees, remember clergy and spouses who have passed away during the year, give special recognition and awards to those individuals and local churches that have done exceptional work in ministry, and we witness the commissioning and ordination of those called to ministry in the church!
Our California-Nevada Annual Conference starts on Wednesday June 21 and continues through Saturday June 24th and will be held at the San Francisco Airport Hyatt Regency, 1333 Old Bayshore Hwy in Burlingame, CA 94010.
This year is a very special Annual Conference year for two of our pastoral staff! Rev. David Ko will be recommended for ordination (final stage) at clergy session, held June 21, the first day of the Annual Conference. In addition Pastor Jon Visitacion will be recommended for commissioning which is the first major step toward completion of his ordination process.
Please mark your calendar; the Commissioning and Ordination Service at Annual Conference will be Friday June 23rd, 7:30pm, and is open for anyone to attend. Therefore, we encourage and hope that many Wesley UMC members will be present to celebrate Rev. David’s ordination and Pastor Jon’s commissioning!
