The Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference (OIMC) is now accepting registrations for its third annual Native immersion experience to be held March 13-17, 2019 in Oklahoma City. The experience provides history, context, and unique perspective on Native peoples in The United Methodist Church. In addition, Oklahoma Natives proudly share their traditions and culture throughout the event. "The immersion experience is important because it teaches you so much more than books can," said the Rev. David Wilson, Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference Superintendent.
The Fierce Conference, to be held February 7-8 at Ginghamsburg UMC, is a gathering for women who lead spiritually and professionally within the church.
