The Summer Institute is a United Methodist Collegiate Ministry Conference that seeks to carry out UMCMA's mission of Support, Advocate, Connect, and Equip. We intentionally plan times of worship, learning, conversations, and fellowship. Our hope is that it will be a time of training and development that aims to sharpen veteran collegiate ministers and invite those within the first five years in a collegiate ministry to learn the basics, create an environment where mentoring and relationships happen, and seek to unite and strengthen all of United Methodist Collegiate Ministry. Summer Institute will begin at noon on Tuesday and end at noon on Friday.
