The Missouri Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church offers various avenues for learning. Join us at a learning and collaboration event. Upcoming opportunities are listed on our events calendar.

We offer in-person and online lay education courses both for personal edification and in pursuit of certified lay ministry. See those listed on our Lay Education page.

Additionally, for lay and clergy alike, we offer on-demand learning via Absorb, a learning platform that offers online courses on your timeline, at a pace that works for you. The goal of this learning platform is to support educational opportunities for those seeking lay certification as well as equip local church leaders on a variety of topics to support their work. Learn more about Absorb and learn how to create a free account on this page.
