Bright Hope for Tomorrow: The Future of the United Methodist Church The United Methodist Church is at a crossroads. For forty-eight years United Methodists have been in conflict over the official position of the denomination regarding God’s welcome of, and how the church will be in ministry with, LGBTQ persons. 2020 will be a defining year for the UMC as General Conference seeks to come to a resolution of the conflict. What will this mean for your church? For the future of United Methodism? Leadership Institute 2019 is aimed at helping United Methodist leaders navigate and lead through the next steps for the denomination. Keynote Speakers include: David Brooks, NY Times columnist and best-selling author of The Road to Character and Ron Heifetz, founder of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School. Join us for this historic and important gathering as we, together, help shape the future.
