A mission-centered event is a great way to have a transformative educational experience, while responding to current issues in a faith-rooted, participatory and action-oriented way. If this seems appealing, please explore the opportunities below to engage, assist and learn about UMC mission in a manner that takes our current social distancing expectations into account.
Virtual Itineration Schedule and Registration
Despite the pandemic, United Methodist missionaries remain deeply engaged in work around the world. Normally, a number of them “itinerate” each year to visit the churches and individuals that support them in ministry.
COVID-19 has put a stop to most travel but that doesn’t mean the missionaries aren’t available to meet virtually!
Each month, four missionaries are invited to be in conversation with laity and clergy throughout the church to
share the joys and challenges they’ve experienced. Please note that registration for the events listed below is limited. If a spot is available, you will receive a confirmation email. If the limit is reached, you will get priority for future events.
