Video conferencing via UMConnect: Do you need help setting up a remote meeting for your staff and/or leadership team? UMConnect is a video conferencing service used by the Dakotas-Minnesota Area of The United Methodist Church to connect people across our three-state area. The vendor our system uses is BlueJeans; it is a cloud-based video conferencing platform that can be used for video conferencing meetings, phone conferencing, webinars, recordings of meetings, and live chat. The Dakotas-Minnesota Area has a negotiated BlueJeans contract for our staff and ministry teams. However, during the coronavirus outbreak, our local churches have been granted permission to use our BlueJeans account, provided that meetings are set up through a conference staff member.
