Many of our churches are expressing interest in strengthening their ministry with young adults but don’t know where to begin. The Iowa Conference with the support of apportionment gifts from United Methodist churches across the state is sponsoring a series of workshops next month to address this concern.
The Rev. Dr. Doug Anderson will be leading one-day learning opportunities on “Post Modern Ministry.” Participants will learn about four key factors in developing ministry with people under 45 years old. In the afternoon Dr. Anderson will outline strategies to launch a new life cycle when the church is in decline. Both of these topics help us accomplish our common mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
The events will be held in four locations across the state from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day. Click on one of the links below to register:
