Since the training event is at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, it would be wonderful for there to be several KY applicants.The conference will offer 2 CEU’s for KY conference members who fully participate.

UMEIT is the United Methodist Ecumenical and Interreligious Training ministry of the Council of Bishops' Office of Christian Unity and Interreligious Relationships (OCUIR). It is composed of laity and clergy of The UMC who are passionate about the work of ecumenical and interreligious ministry.
