2022 UMEIT: Young Adult Network Application

United Methodist Ecumenical and Interreligious Training: Young Adult Network Application
September 2021

The Council of Bishops is leading our denomination into living more fully into Christian unity and into deepening our interreligious relationships. To that end their staff has created UMEIT: YAN (United Methodist Ecumenical and Interreligious Training: Young Adult Network). Young adults chosen to participate will be trained in current group leadership skills, the history and theology of the Ecumenical Movement, and the particular connections among The United Methodist Church, Christian unity and interreligious relationships.

This small cohort of young adults will be between the ages of 25 and 34, will represent the jurisdictions and central conferences of The United Methodist Church, and will be both lay and clergy. Those chosen must be able to read and speak English, commit to 2 years of training, be able to travel elsewhere in the world once a year, have access to a phone and the internet, and be willing to organize and lead a ministry project in their home context. Those chosen to participate in this special training agree to each of those requirements and agree for their name and image to be used in articles and advertisements of the UM bishops. Applications are due jhawxhurst@umc-cob.org no later than December 31, 2021.
