When the WMC organised the logo contest in 2004 for the 19th World Methodist Conference, it was a Singaporean Methodist’s design that was selected. Mr Michael Tan Soo Guan’s design was picked over more than 50 entries worldwide. See the December 2004 issue of Methodist Message to read more about his winning design.

The World Methodist Conference is convened every five years. The Methodist Church in Singapore hosted the 16th World Methodist Conference in 1991 at the Westin Stamford from July 24 to 31.
