Young Adult Clergy Leadership Forum 2019

Young Adult Clergy Leadership Forum

January 27-30, 2019

Church and Society will host 50 young clergy on Capitol Hill, in Washington D.C., for a Church and Society leadership forum. Each United Methodist conference is encouraged to send two young clergy who are currently serving full-time appointments in local United Methodist churches.

Each participant should arrive anytime Sunday, Jan. 27. We will gather for breakfast at the hotel at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 28 and go to the United Methodist Building together at 8:30 a.m. Please plan to depart after lunch Wednesday, Jan. 30.

Goals for the forum
  • Connect young clergy with the ministry of Church and Society.
  • Provide a forum to share knowledge and experience.
  • Create bridges for future ministry collaboration.
  • Build relationships with other young clergy from across the United Methodist connection.
