  1. Bob Case

    Is this separate from Annual Conference?

    • inumcconnect

      Yes, Bob. We realize this makes it tricky for clergy and lay delegates to attend Merge, however, we hope churches can send volunteer and staff leaders not already attending Annual Conference.

  2. Lisa croft

    Wanted to know what type of workshops are being offered.

  3. Wesley Seminary of Indiana Wesleyan University would be interesting in having a booth at this event. We have an MA in Children, Youth & Family Ministry that many attending this event may be interested in.

  4. Marlene Fenstermacher

    Are bios available for workshop leaders. Is there a chance of attending one day only and what would the cost be?

  5. Elisa Deer

    Is there any way to know now what workshops are on Friday? I can only attend that day, so want to make sure there are workshops I am interested in before I register.
