Seminar Program

The United Methodist Seminar Program on National and International Affairs aims to awaken a desire for justice and peace from a perspective of faith through custom designed seminars for groups.

Due to COVID-19, we will not be holding in-person seminars. Please contact Aimee Hong for webinar options.

The Seminar Program provides opportunities for groups to explore an issue by:

  • Reflecting theologically
  • Engaging from experts of the issue (national and grassroots organizations)
  • Participating in Interactive, experiential exercises
  • Meeting with Congressional Representatives
  • Engaging with local community organizations/activists
  • Creating action plans to take home

Seminars are open to United Methodists and non-United Methodists alike. They are available year-round. The schedule and the duration of the seminar is up to the preference of the group. Most seminars are two days, but we can also provide one day seminars or longer seminars. The cost of the seminar is $12 per person per day.

The topic of the seminars is up to the group. Topics that are frequently requested are: Economic Justice; Human Trafficking; Interfaith Dialogue; Immigration & Refugee, Gender Based Violence, Environmental Justice, Mass Incarceration, Gun Violence Prevention and more.

The Seminar Program takes place at The United Methodist Building on Capitol Hill, next to the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court.
