United Theological Seminary (United) will be hosting opportunities across the nation for its United Methodist alumni/alumnae to interact and gather during their conference’s Annual Conference session.
Each year — usually in May or June — all clergy members and an equal number of lay members selected from the local churches attend their conference’s Annual Conference session meet together to worship, fellowship and conduct the business of the conference, which may last 3-5 days. During these sessions, members of the conference hear reports of past and ongoing work; adopt future goals, programs and budgets; ordain clergy members as deacons and elders; and elect delegates to Jurisdictional and General Conferences (every four years). The bishop presides over these meetings.
United Theological Seminary will be recruiting for new students and hosting alumni/alumnae gatherings at 38 area Annual Conferences across the United States from May to June 2013.
“These gatherings provide alumni/alumnae with a great opportunity to get together, reconnect and get the latest news from United,” said Brice Thomas, United’s Director of Alumni/Alumnae Relations.
