The Bishop’s Cabinet, spearheading discussions on progress and challenges facing the church, met ahead of the highly anticipated event.

Myers outlined the agenda, which includes discussions on program agencies, department heads, the Board of Ordained Ministry, the Commission on Way Forward, the global nature of the church, and appointments beyond the local church.
