Mission u 2017

Thursday, July 27- Sunday, July 30

California University of Pennsylvania

Watch the Livestream and archived video from Mission u 2017!



Mission u is an annual event offering opportunities for adults, youth and children to grow spiritually, learn about issues affecting society and experience Christian mission in its many forms. New in 2017 is a Mission in Action option; participants will travel to work sites each morning and return to the Cal u campus for afternoon/evening classes or activities. Youth Mission u for youth in grades 6-12 begins two days before the main event to allow more time for building relationships and serving neighbors through hands-on work. 

Mission u is sponsored jointly by the Conference Global Ministries team and the United Methodist Women. Set up as a long weekend at California University of Pennsylvania, it begins on Thursday evening, but the  schedule allows for participation for those who can't arrive until Friday. Families are encouraged to attend and discount rates are offered for family members who room together.  

There's a Sampler Day on Saturday for anyone who would like to try it for a day.  Even if you haven't registered for Sampler Day, you can come and pay at the door.

Scholarships are available: 

The Gene Stollings Memorial Scholarship will cover the cost of registration, room and board for a first-time clergy attendee.

The Evelyn Hull Memorial Scholarship will cover the cost of a first-time attendee sponsored by a UMW unit.
