UWM Convention


The format is a little different from previous years. This is a change just for this year and was based on feedback we received from you all. It will have both retreat and some convention elements and you will have the option to choose what you would like your experience to be. 

Registration options include:

  • Full Convention Registration
  • 2024 Meal Ticket
  • The Power of Focused Ministry
  • Retired Ministers Event
  • Silver and Gold Fundraising Event
  • Kid's Camp
  • Extra Banquet Ticket

As this Convention is a design-your-own experience, you can select your workshops on Tuesday of Convention. Options will include retreat experiences and/or workshops, all available for CEU credit. 

For example: you can design a full retreat-like experience, a convention-like experience, or a combination of both.

The is an onsite event. Only the Monday Credentialing Ceremony will be live streamed.
