Invitation to UMC Young Clergy Collaboration

“Give me one hundred [people] who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergyman or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon the earth.” –John Wesley

Does this describe you? Are you under age 35 and a clergy person in the United Methodist Church?

I invite you to be a part of a collaboration of young clergy at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection on October 8, 2009 just prior to the Leadership Institute 2009.

We will continue on the trajectory set by 40 Days of Prayer and 6 Questions for The United Methodist Church and seek to raise up leaders, share stories and create next steps to renew the church.

You are invited to:

  1. Make arrangements to be present on October 8, 2009 at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection.
  2. Sign up at to confirm your presence.
  3. After sign up, look to receive emails with “UMC Young Clergy Collaboration” in the subject line for time, location and how to prepare for October 8.
  4. Invite two other young clergy to join you.

Is there anyway to do it at a time when a Pre-Institute session is not scheduled?

What about young almost-clergy? There are a handful of seminarians from Duke who are thinking about coming down for the Leadership Institute.

I am also “almost” clergy, but also do not fit within the under 25 young-adult focus area that you recommended for Luke. Our flight does not get in until 1:10, but if you end up meeting later I would like to be able to join you!??!!

Would love to be there, but plane tickets are pricey :-(. Would also love to be there for the institute, but while my husband qualifies for the special price, I, alas, miss it by a year. Is there any chance that at least be webcast or have people able to skype in or something?
