Understanding the Division

We invite you to join us in viewing a six-part video series created by Rev. Rob Renfroe. In this series, Rev. Renfroe explains the theological and spiritual issues surrounding the division within the United Methodist Church.  

Each part of the series is 15 minutes or less. The first part is called “The United Methodist Church is Divided and Dividing“.   

Below are links to the series. We believe it to be one of the most accurate and easily understood explanations of the evolution of the UMC. The series makes clear why it is necessary that Buncombe Street church and all other traditional UMC congregations must act now in order to continue to worship in a traditional church.  

Please be aware that there is a strategy on the part of the UMC to delay disaffiliation decisions until the 2024 General Conference. Fortunately (and intentionally), we are voting as a congregation on October 30, 2022.  

For a clear understanding of the necessity of holding a vote in 2022 and the reasons behind the UMC delays, we encourage you to watch video #5 – Why It’s Time for Traditionalists to Leave – if you don’t have time to watch all 6 videos.
