About the World Methodist Conference

The World Methodist Conference is a global gathering of the Methodist-Wesleyan family held every five years in a different part of the world. The 21st World Methodist Conference was held in Houston, Texas, USA, under the theme “One.” Organized around four sub themes – One God, One Faith, One People, One Mission – the program will invite participants into a conversation about the distinction between unity and uniformity in the Wesleyan tradition. Participants left Houston knowing what has united the Wesleyan people historically and what God is calling us toward in the future. The conference began with an evening celebration of the triune God and concluded with another evening celebration three days later that sent us out into the world as a diverse Christian body united. Highlight videos of each day give a great overview of each day’s offerings.


The 21st World Methodist Conference began the evening of the 31 August and concluded the evening of the 3rd of September 2016.
