Are you wondering…

  • What are my strengths, values and passions?
  • What brings meaning & purpose to my life?
  • How can I continue to grow spiritually?
  • How can I make a difference?
  • What are the ways I can connect to ministry across the Minnesota Annual Conference?
If you are a lay person asking yourself these questions, consider joining us for Connexion: Finding Purpose and Connection in Ministry. This retreat is about listening deeply to God, to yourself, to each other, and to the needs of the world. It's about connecting your passions and call to others in the Minnesota Conference. It's about finding your spot to contribute.

This retreat, once completed, will qualify you as a certified lay servant. 

About the word ConneXion: John Wesley developed what he called "connexion," an interlocking system of classes, societies, and annual conferences. We use the word in honor of our Wesleyan heritage.

This event is at Coon Rapids United Methodist Church on the north side of the Twin City area.  There are several housing options.  You can commute ($75), stay with a church member who has offered space ($100), stay at a local hotel with a roommate ($150) or in a single room ($195).

Partial scholarships are available.  Do not let the cost keep you away.

Cost: $75-$195 depending on housing selected. Do not let the cost keep you away. Contact Gail Johnson ( for more information.
