2014 Young Adult Clergy - GBCS Leadership Forum

December 15, 2013

Young Adult Clergy GBCS Leadership Forum
Jan. 26-29, 2014

The 2014 Young Adult Clergy-General Board of Church and Society (GBCS) Leadership Forum, set for Jan. 26-29, 2014 in Washington, DC, will provide Elders or Deacons serving full time in local congregation age 35 or younger the opportunity to network, fellowship, study and worship with other Young Clergy from across the United Methodist connection; conversation with Jim Winkler, GBCS General Secretary and other GBCS staff; advocacy on key legislative issues being debated on Capitol Hill and their impact on children in the United States and beyond; building networks for positive change in through local congregations and within communities; and creative and participatory ways to teach the Social Principles in local churches. Interested persons should contact Denise Walton, assistant to the Bishop for Connectional Ministries, at denise@sgaumc.org

Since 2004, more than 500 clergy have participated in these General Board of Church and Society-sponsored gatherings in Washington DC. Each Conference is encouraged to send two young clergy – Elders or Deacons - to this event. Because space is limited to a total of 60 it is important to register early. All Elders or Deacons serving full time in local congregation age 35 or younger are eligible to attend. 1.5 Continuing Education Credits will be awarded for this training event. The application deadline is January 10, 2014.
