The National Workshop (NWCU) will take place in Houston, Texas March 23-26, 2020 at Whitehall Hotel. The theme will be “Radical Hospitality,” and the gathering will be an excellent opportunity to worship, learn and fellowship with Christians from many other faith traditions.
Parallel to the NWCU is UMEIT: USA (United Methodist Ecumenical and Interreligious Training in the USA) which also takes place annually, and will also be held in Houston March 23-26 at the Whitehall Hotel. The topic will be “The Basics of Dialogue,” and it will be an excellent opportunity to worship, learn and fellowship with other Methodists and Episcopalians who have a passion for ecumenism. It is recommended all Christian Unity Chairs from all annual conferences in the USA attend.
The scholarship is for $300 to help those attending the NWCU and UMEIT: USA for the first time. The application deadline is February 17, 2020. Interested persons (both clergy and lay) may go to the following links:
