It was requested by the bishop last 5th session which was held in Sta. Rosa UMC in Sta. Rosa, Laguna to held in Quezon Province the annual conference which is the highest legislative regional body of the United Methodist Church . Though he expect one church in Quezon Province to accept the invitation, in the middle of the conference year Atimonan UMC accepted the challenge of hosting one of the important event in the life of the local churches in Southern Tagalog. There was once an attempt which was invited by a lay delegate to the annual conference from Atimonan in one of its session to hold its session in Atimonan but was not approved. Only now that the bishop request to held the Conference in Quezon Province and Atimonan UMC took the chance of hosting.

Rev. Nazzer Oliveros the administrative pastor of Atimonan UMC led the preparation to host the annual conference inspite of limited resources. Usually host churches contributes to the budget and that is why big churches hold such gathering. But with few adjustments the conference council of finance and administration coordinated with Atimonan UMC regarding hosting matters.
