CONFERENCE OFFICE HOLIDAY HOURS

The Conference office will be closed Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day.

COME AND ENJOY AUTHENTIC MEXICAN CUISINE IN PUEBLA AND TLANCUALPICAN

If you have eaten at Taco Bell, you haven't eaten authentic Mexican food. Want to try the real thing? Besides enjoying the food, come and meet the people and participate in hands on ministry.

You are invited to become "AWARE" (Alternative Work/study Awareness Program) in Mexico, October 6-15, 2017. This trip is open to anyone age 18 or older who has a desire to work and learn in another culture. Working with staff of the Give Ye Them To Eat program (www.gytte.org), we will work alongside Mexicans on construction projects, repairs, and upgrades in and around the Tree of Life Training Center in Tlancualpican. We will visit villages, participate in health programs, learn about agricultural and livestock development, participate in worship at local Methodist churches, as well as have some time to shop and do some touring.

Cost for the trip is $2,000.

Scholarship assistance of up to $300 is available through team leader Rev. Marian Hartman.

Cost includes all transportation, meals, lodging, and admissions to tourist attractions.

Please note that this area of Mexico is NOT a high-risk area for violence.

Clergy can receive 3.3 CEUs for participation in the AWARE program. Funds for continuing education can be used.

The Board of Ordained Ministry also has continuing formation grants for clergy; contact Rev. Ryan Knauss at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
