Kentucky Conference UMVIM is pleased to offer two training events on Saturday, October 26th:
Team Leader Training
UMVIM Team Leader Training equips and empowers persons to serve as team leaders for short-term mission trips.   The training covers the logistics and spiritual components of planning and executing a successful mission trip.   Our United Methodist Mission sites tell us they can tell a real, positive difference about teams led by UMVIM-trained leaders.   Training will begin at 9:00am, and end by 3:30pm.   Cost is $30, lunch and Team Leader Manual included. 


Involving Your Church in Mission
This workshop explores ways to engage local congregations in the wider, global mission of The United Methodist Church.    It provides pastors, lay leaders, mission committees, and other interested lay people with the information, tools, and ideas they need to help their congregations become more interested and involved in God’s mission in the world.   Special attention will be given to different ways to build mission partnerships for local churches.   This training will begin at 9:00am and by 1:30pm.  Cost is $10, lunch and resources are included.
