The Council of Bishops is offering a scholarship for first-time attendees to participate in the National Workshop on Christian Unity and UMEIT: USA.

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.

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.
