East Ohio and West Ohio UMC conferences to hold Candidacy Summit Retreat at MTSO

Worship begins at the January 2016 Candidacy Summit Retreat

Candidates for United Methodist ministry from the East Ohio and West Ohio annual conferences of the United Methodist Church will gather at MTSO July 29 and 30 for the biannual Candidacy Summit Retreat. The retreat brings together those who are exploring a call to ministry for worship, fellowship, meeting with their mentoring groups, learning and reflecting.

Candidacy Summit Retreats have been held at MTSO each winter and summer since 2013. This will be the seventh time West Ohio candidates have gathered for the retreat. East Ohio candidates began participating in the summer of 2015. Learn more about the Candidacy Summit process.
