Foundation Announces Educational Opportunity

The United Methodist Foundation of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce an educational opportunity in partnership with Dakota Wesleyan University (DWU). The program is designed to provide training on “Practical Church Leadership (PCL),” giving ministry leaders the tools and confidence they need to live into the changing nature of congregational life.  It is an ecumenical program designed for both clergy and laity who serve in a professional capacity (camp directors, conference center staff, parachurch leaders).  The Foundation is interested in recruiting a cohort of approximately 15 participants from the two annual conferences that we serve, Western Pennsylvania and Susquehanna, to begin study in July 2024. More detail about this unique opportunity can be found here.
