Mission Encounter 2023: Who can we be together?
February 3 @ 7:00 pm - February 5 @ 6:15 pm$10
Mission Encounter prepares United Methodists for faithful living and action by participating in a transformative education program based on biblically grounded curricula in order to be in ministry for a more just and equitable world – locally and globally. Mission Encounter lives out our Virginia Conference vision, “to be disciples of Jesus Christ who are lifelong learners who influence others to serve.”
Mission Encounter is a joint effort between VAUMC United Women in Faith and Serving Ministries, inviting members to be involved in the mission of God.
In other conferences, this gathering is known as Mission U, hosted by the United Women in Faith. Uniquely in Virginia, however, we made it a joint event and call it Mission Encounter. We pray that every member will hear the call of our Lord to be part of the mission, and be sent to the world!
For participants, Mission Encounter is an opportunity to study current issues impacting society based on current social justice and mission-related topics. Participants grow in understanding the mission of the church in the current world context; conference events are open to all.
Mission Encounter is a cooperative event sponsored by the Virginia Conference Missional Ministries Board and the Virginia Conference United Methodist Women.
