One in five United Methodist congregations in the US have left the denomination over LGBTQ conflicts

  • Over 6,000 United Methodist congregations, which accounts for a fifth of the total in the U.S., have received permission to leave the denomination due to a schism over theology and the role of LGBTQ people.
  • The departures began in 2019 and have reached their highest level this year, with many conservatives choosing to leave amid a growing defiance of bans on LGBTQ marriage and ordination in U.S. Churches and conferences.
  • Most departing congregations are joining the newly created Global Methodist Church, while others are going independent or joining different denominations.
