As a reminder, the 2022 Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference (SEJ) takes place on November 2-4 at Lake Junaluska, NC.
The Southeastern Jurisdiction of United Methodist Church is a regional body comprised of 14 conferences, including the Virginia Conference. This meeting, which will be attended by more than 350 voting delegates, is to elect three new bishops and to determine assignments for all SEJ bishops from January 1, 2023-June 30, 2024.

An in-depth interview with the Rev. Dr. Steve Summers, Assistant to the Bishop and Director of Connectional Ministries for the Virginia Conference, about the SEJ Conference can be found here.
In addition, two previous Virginia Conference articles about the SEJ Conference are here and here.
Periodic updates this week will be provided about developments at the SEJ Conference.
