Join Us at a Reimagined Mission u 2022! 
Mission u, described by many as one of the most impactful spiritual and mission growth experiences, is welcoming participants back to in-person events this July—but with some new twists!
The retreat-type event, collaboratively sponsored by United Women in Faith (previously known as United Methodist Women), and the United Methodist Dakotas Conference, is offering shortened scheduling options. Open to both men and women, Mission u is also introducing one vibrant, relevant, justice-oriented and biblically centered curriculum, continuing its commitment to learning together for the transformation of the world. 

Southern Site Mission u, held on the campus of Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, SD, will be Friday, July 15 to Sunday, July 17; Northern Site Mission u, held at the University of Jamestown, in Jamestown, ND, will be Thursday, July 21 to Saturday, July 23. There will also be a virtual option August 11-13 for those not yet ready or unable to attend in-person.
