Connect with others in the ministry of church administration for a day of professional growth.

What is happening within the denomination? How does that affect our personal ministries? How do we keep our focus on what really matters?
Cullen Tanner, MN UMC specialist in worship technology and media
What is the new platform? How can we use it to access Conference resources and share resources with other churches?
Heidi Heller, MN UMC archivist and database coordinator
What does “NO metrics or tables” really mean? Why use the new People Portal? Why must we keep all these records?
