WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Teams from three United Methodists conferences are working to combine two Kansas conferences and one from Nebraska into a single conference that will be based in Wichita.

Members of the Kansas West, Kansas East and Nebraska United Methodist conferences voted earlier this month to unify the three conferences into one conference, beginning in January 2014.

The conferences are regional bodies that supervise churches and clergy within a geographic area.

The Wichita Eagle reports that (http://bit.ly/Ml6eSC ) members of the South Central United Methodist jurisdiction in late July will elect the new bishop for the Kansas-Nebraska conference.

The new bishop for the Kansas-Nebraska conference will live in Wichita but church headquarters will remain in Topeka and in Lincoln, Neb.
