The Kansas East Conference's mission is to connect and empower people and churches in living out the Gospel's call to invite, nurture, equip and send forth disciples of Jesus Christ.
The present Kansas East Conference was formed in 1968 by the merger of the Kansas Conference of the Evangelical United Brethren Church and the Kansas Conference of the Methodist Church. The conferences were combined through the unification of the Evangelical United Brethren and Methodist denominations in April 1968. In 2012, conference members voted to come together with the Kansas West and Nebraska annual conferences to form the Great Plains Conference. The new conference will begin Jan. 1, 2014.
Headquartered in Topeka, today's Kansas East United Methodist Conference is comprised of 324 churches, 447 clergy members and more than 72,120 lay members. It stretches over the eastern third of the state between Highway 77 and the Kansas-Missouri border.
