The Standing Rules of the Tennessee Annual Conference represent the means by which we organize and oversee our work of making disciples for the transformation of the world. The Standing Rules are adopted each year by the Annual Conference and guide our life together through the next Annual Conference session. Amendments and additions to these rules are overseen by a Committee on Standing Rules and are presented to the Annual Conference for consideration. The rules adopted by the Annual Conference become effective upon the adjournment of that conference. The procedures for adding or amending the Standing Rules can be found in Section 4 of the Standing Rules. Procedural rules may be suspended by a 2/3 vote of the members of the Annual Conference.
