Who We Are

Virginia Methodists for a New Thing is a grassroots movement of members in the Virginia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. This group of laity, clergy, and retired clergy seek the next faithful step for United Methodists in Virginia as we live into being a church for all of God’s people.

The movement is a broad coalition of people from a variety of backgrounds all seeking to increase the representation of voices at God’s table. We view the issues facing the United Methodist Church as complex, intersectional, and multifaceted. We also know that despite the audacious goals and difficult road ahead, it is Christ that leads God’s church forward into a new future. We covet your participation, your prayers, and your feedback.
