The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) and the Association of United Methodist Theological Schools (AUMTS) co-hosted an academic theological colloquy, “Missio Dei and the United States: Toward a Faithful United Methodist Witness” November 12-15, 2017, in Boston, Massachusetts.

The colloquy brought together more than 40 United Methodist scholars and seven United Methodist bishops from across the U.S. to engage in constructive dialogue that will open new pathways in our understanding and faithful practice of the Missio Dei. The participants explored what the future of the church could look like from a missional perspective and Wesleyan heritage. 

Gregory A. Smith, associate director of research for Pew Research Center, was the guest speaker.
