Listening Post Survey
The purpose of our Cal-Pac Listening Posts is to give people in local churches an opportunity to reflect on what is important to them in their Christian faith and in the United Methodist Church, then to imagine new directions for the church toward which God seems to be leading.

Your feedback on this process is necessary to help the Annual Conference understand the needs and hopes of our congregations. Please help us by completing this survey, which will provide the data needed to construct our next steps.

As the church grapples with who we are and where we go from here, there are a few paths forward which have emerged. Although it is difficult to know which path you may support in the future, please answer the following questions as best you can, according to your current feelings.
Please indicate your level of support for:
Accepting the Traditional Plan
The Traditional Plan was passed at General Conference 2019. It not only strengthens anti-LGBTQ provisions presently included in the Book of Discipline, but would also add new measures intended to ensure “greater accountability” and stricter enforcement at every level of the United Methodist Church.
Not Supportive
Extremely Supportive
Staying in the United Methodist Church and resisting the Traditional Plan
Resisting means that United Methodists would remain in the denomination and continue to defy the unjust laws from within the current system, while continuing to work for full inclusion and new forms of global missional engagement.
Not Supportive
Extremely Supportive
Disaffiliating together to form another body separate from the current United Methodist Church
Disaffiliation would be an act of coordinated separation from the existing global church, with the intention to create a new connectional system free from the exclusionary language of the traditional plan.
Not Supportive
Extremely Supportive
Dissolution of the United Methodist church
Dissolution would mean ending the United Methodist denomination as a whole and dividing resources and churches.
Not Supportive
Extremely Supportive
