4/11/17:  Due to low registrations we have cancelled the upcoming May VOICES conference with Nicole Garcia.  Stay tuned for an announcement regarding the fall conference.  

Each year, First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) hosts a community workshop/lecture series entitled Voices:  Addressing Issues That Affect the Church and Wider Community.  Our audience is the wider ecumenical faith community (clergy, chaplains, lay leaders) in the Twin Cities, and our goal is to provide tools to our colleagues and wider community to help address these issues, through nationally-recognized speakers & partnerships with local organizations and practitioners.

Additionally, the registration fee is extremely affordable ($25 for the weekend, $15 for a single day) through the support of The Wholeness Fund of First Christian Church Minneapolis.  In keeping with our calling as Disciples of Christ to “be a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world”, The Wholeness Fund seeks to support local & global organizations that strive to meet the needs of their community by serving people in their walk through life. CEUs will be earned through United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities (no charge).
