Young Clergy Leadership Forum is scheduled for January 28-31.

Young Clergy Leadership Forum is scheduled for January 28-31.  Each conference is invited to send two young clergy, preferably age 35 or younger and serving full time in a local church.  Since this serves as an introduction to the ministries of the Board of Church and Society, we ask that you not send people who have attended previously. We are able to accommodate a maximum of 50 participants.  Here is the link to registration page: https://www.umcjustice.org/what-you-can-do/events/young-adul...
