Celebrating 2020, 2021, and 2022 Clergy!
May 25, 2022

This year the Board of Ordained Ministry Executive Committee recognizes that we live in a new season and a new time in which gatherings look different. At each annual conference prior to the pandemic, the board honored those being commissioned or ordained with a special dinner hosted by the Board of Ordained Ministry. This year the Board of Ordained Ministry is hosting a carnival event to honor all commissioned and ordained clergy and local pastors from the classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022 with a “hats off” portion and a “Clergy Celebration” carnival on the lawn area at the Labyrinth. This extended clergy celebration sets a space for all clergy to gather, celebrate our new clergy colleagues, enjoy the snacks and festivities, and embrace the gift of in-person fellowship with one another. All clergy are encouraged to wear a fun hat as we come together to celebrate as a conference.
