Texas Conference Population Growth


The Pre-Conference Journal for our upcoming special session is now available online. Over the course of several posts I will be commenting on the proposals we’ll be addressing. The first graphic in the presentation is a map showing the counties contained within the TAC. To my surprise Camp County (the county we’re in – circled on the map to the left), the third smallest county in Texas, is projected to grow 21% – 40% by 2020. Growth in Upshur, Smith & Gregg counties, wouldn’t suprise me – but they’re not projected to grow as much as we are.

If these statistics are correct, we will have to work harder to be ready for growth. As United Methodists we’ll need to find better ways to accommodate growth and change. SOunds good to me.
