#CTTalks 7: Stronger Together — Strategic Directions for 2017-2020


Coming May 6: 
Welcome to Portland

Continuing the conversation around key topics related to General Conference 2016, The Connectional Table begins a month-long series about the work done to develop strategic directions in each of the Four Areas of Focus, the fruit of Vital Congregations, for the 2017-2020 quadrennium.. 

Beginning April 12, each weekly video will focus on four key issues as The United Methodist Church looks ahead to ministry together in the coming years: mission, resources, stewardship and vision.

Interviewees include leaders from United Methodist boards and agencies, The Connectional Table, and the General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA).

The Connectional Table invites anyone who is interested in the topic to participate via Twitter by using the hashtag #CTTalks.
