    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    ministries / Spiritual Life

    Conference Spiritual Directors

    In July 2018, a team of spiritual directors was gathered together within the Conference; the intent of the team was to teach individuals in the Conference about spiritual direction/formation, to provide support to District Superintendents, to be a resource for prayer in the Conference (including offering a prayer room at Annual Conference), to listen deeply to the needs/desires of local churches and offer guidance and support, to offer training in Wesleyan practices and spiritual disciplines, to offer retreats and workshops for lay and clergy, and to continue to discern ways to be in ministry in the Conference.
