The One Church Plan offers a working solution for all constituency groups. It allows more conservative bishops, conferences, churches, and pastors to continue their current practices. It allows more progressive bishops, conferences, churches, and pastors to fully include LGBTQ persons in the life of the church. The Plan has no effect on Central Conferences outside the United States who are able to adapt the Book of Discipline to their own mission settings. The One Church Plan holds the denomination together for the widest ministry with the most impact for living out the United Methodist Mission: To Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.
The One Church Plan is available here for download. You can download the whole thing or the component parts.
