About
The United Methodist Church was created in 1968 by a merger of the Evangelical United Brethren and Methodist churches. Methodists elected their bishops at one national gathering until 1940, when the jurisdictional system was instituted. Bishops in the EUB church were elected at one national gathering until 1968.

A Jurisdictional Conference happens every 4 years primarily to elect Bishops. The conference also has the powers and duties:

•To promote the evangelistic, educational, missionary and benevolent interests of the church and to provide for interests and institutions within their boundaries;
•To establish and constitute jurisdictional conference boards as auxiliaries to the general boards of the church;
•To determine the boundaries of Annual Conferences;
•To make rules and regulations for the administration of the church's work within the Jurisdiction;
•To appoint a committee on appeals.
