Districts of the Central Texas Conference


The Districts of the CTC restructured with the implementation of the Forward to a New Spring plan in January of 2021. While the restructuring maintained the five previous geographic districts – Central, East, North, South and West – the plan reduced the number of District Superintendents from five to three and established three District Areas to be administered by the three DSs and their district teams - East District Area, North/West District Area and South/Central District Area.

The Council of Bishops of The United Methodist Church has decided that in the best interest of the church at this time, they would cancel the Special Session of the General Conference set for May 8, 2021. The bishops announced that they will dedicate their regularly scheduled April meeting to discussing and considering the results of listening sessions that are occurring and discern a possible need for a new timeline toward General Conference 2020 set for August 29 to September 6, 2022, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.


Bishop Lowry, episcopal leader of the Central Texas Conference UMC, stated, “I invite all to pray for each of our bishops and the Council as a whole as we seek to discern the guidance of the Holy Spirit in moving forward.”
