Northern Illinois Conference of The United Methodist Church
What is an Annual Conference?
In The United Methodist Church, the annual conference serves as the "basic unit" of the church. The United States has 63 annual conferences, supervised by 50 bishops. There are 59 annual conferences in Africa, Europe, and the Philippines, which are supervised by 18 bishops. In the U.S., an annual conference may cover an entire state, only part of the state, or even parts of two or more states.
