Annual Conference Leaders
United Methodist collegiate ministries are each direct ministries of their Annual Conferences. Their funding, support, and oversight are all part of the responsibilities of the Annual Conference Staff and Boards of Higher Education and Ministry. Through resources and networking, we offer tools that help support this vital work as we all strive to enhance the United Methodist ministry to college students. Special thanks to several annual conferences for sharing their valuable resources. May they serve as a guide for your Annual Conference in a way that deepens your ministry without having to recreate the wheel.
If you have resources that you are willing to share, please contact Tim Moore, firstname.lastname@example.org

University Church Network
The University Church Network is a collection of churches on or adjacent to college and university campuses who share best practices, press for innovation, and develop a network of colleagues. The network is jointly supported by the UMCollegiate Ministry Office and the Leadership Ministry Office of the General Board of Discipleship.
One of the most valuable parts of a peer-learning event is the opportunity to talk about what is happening in our churches, where we are struggling, and what new and exciting things are occurring. In light of this, there will be time for informal conversations, as well as more structured sessions.
The staff at the church are already at work, and the gathering promises to be a great opportunity for networking and learning.
