Young Clergy Leadership Forum 2020
Young Clergy Leadership Forum
January 26-29, 2020
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. 26. We will gather for breakfast at the hotel at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 27 and go to the United Methodist Building together at 8:30 a.m. Please plan to depart after lunch Wednesday, Jan. 29.
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.
Special speakers will include:
