Next Thursday is a synchblog of ordained, commissioned, and local pastors and ministry professionals who are responding to the question “Who called you on the journey of ministry?” While it is obviously God who calls people, there are others who helped along the way and that’s who our group will be writing about on April 4th.
The purpose? To raise awareness and stoke interest for young adults to attend Exploration 2013 in Denver this coming November. Here’s a brief summary:
Registration is open for Exploration 2013 in Denver, Colo., an event for young adults age 18-26 to hear, discern, and respond to God’s call to ordained ministry in The United Methodist Church. Featured speakers will include Bishop Cynthia Fierro Harvey and the Rev. Jorge Acevedo.
“If you think God might be calling you to ordained ministry, if you wondered what ordained ministry in the UMC looks like, or you want to be with other people who are sifting through these issues as well, this gathering is for you,” said the Rev. James “Trip” Lowery, the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry’s Director of Young Adult Ministry, Discernment, and Enlistment. The event, scheduled for Nov. 15-17, is held every other year and sponsored by GBHEM.

Hope folks can participate and attend this great event!
