Sponsored by the Bishop Jack and Marjorie Tuell Center for Leadership Excellence and the General Board of Global Ministries, this conference will take place on Friday, April 24, 2015, and Saturday, April 25, 2015, at Seattle’s First United Methodist Church.
Lay and clergy teams who desire to boost existing ministries and explore how to embrace others who are different from themselves will want to participate in this exciting event. Through this conference, you’ll begin to appreciate how diverse gifts will transform your Body of Christ.
The United Methodist Church for All People, located in Columbus, Ohio, has developed into a vibrant faith community composed of people from diverse social, economic, and racial backgrounds. Their ministries have grown and leaders have emerged from across this entire spectrum. Join the founders of the Church for All People as they serve as our keynote speakers for this conference.
Our Keynote Speakers will include:
- Reverend John Edgar, United Methodist Church for All People
- Donita Harris – Lay Pastor and Director of Operations
- George Howard – President of the Board for C4AP, Associate General Secretary for General Board of Global Ministries
The conference plenaries are designed to meet you where you are. Whether your congregation is taking its first step in reaching out to a community that is different from those in the pews on Sunday morning, or you are engaged in multicultural, multiclass ministry and desire expansion and depth, this event will offer a wide variety.
Congregations should begin their planning to attend this unique, space-limited conference, as this training will be marketed to the Western Jurisdiction for participation.
