A Leadership Development Opportunity for Young Adults

Each year, UMVIM-NEJ offers a unique leadership development opportunity for young adults (aged 18-30ish).  Participants are trained in the context of planning and executing a mission journey.  Upon completion of the training, participants are expected to lead or co-lead a team on a journey of their choosing within 18 months.  The 2017 and 2018 journeys have been focused on exposing young adults to the Methodist Church of Cuba and its Spirit-filled worship, explosive growth, young leadership, and deep model of discipleship.  The 2019 journey will take young leaders to China to interact with Christians there.  This will be a collaboration between the North Central and the Northeastern Jursidictions.  See the application materials below or contact NEJ Coordinator Tom Lank for more details.
