Get Ready for NYC!

Monday, August 7th to Wednesday, August 9th, 2023

Nexus will be held in New York City for the first time!  Since we haven’t met in person since 2019, we decided to shake things up. For this conference, our focus will be on Korean American pastors who serve in the United Methodist Church (we will invite laity again for the next convocation in 2025).  We will be meeting at Community UMC in Jackson Heights, located in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the world.  160 different languages are spoken here and the food is also amazing. Rev. Eumin Kim is the pastor at Community UMC, a vibrant multi-ethnic congregation with services in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Participants will be staying at the brand-new Four Points by Sheraton in Flushing, a mecca of Asian food.  Like the 3 million New Yorkers who take the subway every day, we’ll also be taking the 7 train from the hotel to Community UMC.  The registration fee does not cover the cost of the hotel and meals, but the remainder of the costs are covered by generous grants from the UMC churches and the Korean Ministry Plan.  Limited scholarships are available, especially for seminarians and young clergy.  Please plan to arrive by early afternoon on Monday, August 7th at the hotel in Flushing so that you can join us for dinner at Community UMC in Jackson Heights by 6pm.  You can plan to leave in the afternoon, after lunch on Wednesday, August 9th.  Registration may be paid by credit card or check.  If paying by check, please send an email for further instructions.  Participants should be pastors affiliated with the United Methodist Church.   If you have any questions, please contact Prumeh Lee, the chair of Nexus Ministry –  [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1626517141443{padding-top: 5% !important;padding-bottom: 5% !important;}”][vc_column][vc_btn title=”CLICK HERE TO REGISTER” size=”lg” align=”center” link=”|target:_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row_content” css=”.vc_custom_1627960148776{padding-right: 5% !important;padding-left: 5% !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row disable_element=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1627960031347{padding-bottom: 5% !important;}”][vc_column align=”text-lg-center text-md-center text-sm-center text-xs-center”][ra_button style=”btn-solid” title=”REGISTER ONLINE NOW” link=”|target:_blank”][ra_button style=”btn-underlined” title=”or, read the full announcement” link=”|title:Announcing%20Nexus%20Convocation%202021″ css=”.vc_custom_1626515977003{margin-right: 5% !important;margin-left: 5% !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1626517122825{padding-top: 5% !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][ra_section_title style=”underline4″ title=”The Latest” title_font_container=”tag:h2″ title_use_theme_fonts=”yes” content_font_container=”tag:p|color:%23000000″ content_use_theme_fonts=”yes” use_custom_fonts_title=”true” use_custom_fonts_content=”true” css=”.vc_custom_1625639310698{margin-bottom: 75px !important;}”][/ra_section_title][ra_latest_posts style=”thumbnail-left” post_type=”post” posts_per_page=”6″ taxonomies=”69″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
