EXPLORATION 2017 is an event for young adults age 18-26 to hear, discern, and respond to God's call to ordained ministry and to explore their gifts for service as a deacon or elder in The United Methodist Church. This year Exploration is November 3-5 in Portland, OR. The Board of Ordained Ministry of the Missouri Annual Conference is sponsoring $100 of registration fees and full flight for those interested in exploring their call. (We have resources set aside for 20 young adults to attend.) Local churches may also support the registration fees.

Register for the event at www.explorecalling.org. Make your own efficient travel arrangements asap to get the lowest fare and availability. Turn your registration and flight receipts into Jenny Gragg, jgragg@moumethodist.org by October 1 for reimbursement. Revs. Karen Hayden, Mark Dumas and Linda Pagel will be there as representatives from the Board of Ordained Ministry. They will be there throughout the event and able to assist with needs.

The schedule for the event is available on the www.explorecalling.org website, please note that you are responsible for transportation (shuttle service) to and from the airport in addition to your own day to day activities. We will connect with all Missouri participants prior to the event.
