Update on Mediation Between
Mt. Bethel UMC and the North Georgia Annual Conference
The Mt. Bethel members authorized by the church’s Administrative Council to mediate, along with legal counsel, met today in good faith with legal representatives of the North Georgia Annual Conference (NGAC) in a professionally mediated session.
The representatives of Mt. Bethel were there endeavoring to arrive at a compromise that would result in a resolution to the current dispute between Mt. Bethel and the NGAC.
The mediation was not successful and an impasse was declared by the Trustees of the NGAC. However, we remain committed to finding a solution outside of the legal system.
