Are you or do you know a college student or other young adult who has the gifts for and a possible call to ministry? Consider attending Exploration, a three-day event for young adults aged 18-26 to hear, discern, and respond to God’s call to ordained ministry and to explore their gifts for service as a deacon or elder in The United Methodist Church.

The details:
  • It’s held in Portland, OR from November 3-5, 2017 for anyone aged 18-26
