As the church emerges from COVID, young adult ministries offers a spirit of experimentation and learning that will help build and grow the Michigan Conference.
While COVID-19 has kept people apart for the past 12 months, United Methodist congregations have still come together in new ways. Generous gifts to Ministry Shares enabled exciting new ministries.
Faithful payment of Ministry Shares makes good things happen. A visit to Flint, MI celebrates a church that paid 100% in a difficult year, and a ministry that adapted to the challenges of COVID-19.
An 18-month cohort, facilitated by Young Adult Ministries, seeks to partner persons with seeds with others who will help those seeds grow. Young Adults are encouraged to sign up by March 15, 2021.
“I look forward to launching a new cohort of imagineers who have ideas ready to be hatched,” says Lisa Batten. Ministry Incubators and Wesley Theological Seminary are Michigan Conference partners.
