DisAbility Ministries Going to General Conference 2016

The DisAbility Ministries Committee is going to General Conference 2016!

We are excited about meeting United Methodists from around the world! We will be ensuring that everything is accessible, as well as promoting awareness and providing information.

Eight petitions have been prepared by Committee chair Sharon McCart and submitted by the Committee. These petitions run the gamut from simple word changes (e.g. “ministry with” instead of “ministry to”) to working toward the accessibility of our United Methodist-related seminaries, fine-tuning Accessibility Audit procedures and more.

In addition, the United Methodist Association of Ministers with Disabilities has prepared and submitted four petitions through a number of annual conferences. These additional petitions address inequities in mental health care insurance coverage within and outside of the UMC, representation on Joint Clergy Medical Leave Committees, and elimination of discrimination against people with disabilities in the ordination process.

If you have any questions, please contact Sharon McCart at

Hope to see you in Portland!
