The United Methodist Association of Ministers 2018 meeting is scheduled for August 1-3, 2018, Gallaudet University, Washington DC.

The United Methodist Association of Ministers with Disabilities is sponsoring a conference, “Taking Our Place at the Table in the UMC.” We recognize that people with disabilities are often forgotten when it comes to leadership development and training. This conference is designed to bring us together for training, conversation and strategic thinking with leaders in the church from the General Board of Church and Society, the General Commission on Religion and Race, and the Lewis Center for Leadership Development at Wesley Theological Seminary.

Taking our place at the table as leaders with disabilities in the local church, in our conferences, jurisdictions, and the global church is a justice issue. Our goal is to learn to work collaboratively with others who have been marginalized by the church, so that together, we can effect change.

Registration is now at capacity. E-mail Leo Yates to be placed on a waiting list.
