UMCNext represents a diverse group of pastors and lay people who believe the Traditional Plan is not the way forward for the United Methodist Church. Many churches are wondering how they can respond to the recent decision by the special called session of General Conference. MOUMCNext is hosting a gathering of Missouri church leaders and pastors to collaborate, learn, and strategize about practical ways to respond to these decisions at the local level. The Gathering is hosting the event at the McCausland site August 12-13. Registration is $30 and includes a book and breakfast Tuesday morning. Hotel recommendations SpringHill Suites (Brentwood MO) and Marriott (Richmond Heights MO).
