The New England Annual Conference has received generous donations for this experience, and will collect an offering at the 2019 Annual Conference session on June 13. The total of all those offerings will be divided evenly among the participants. Additionally, participants are encouraged to reach out to family and friends, and their local congregations to help you raise the funds.
Other churches are welcome to help support these young people on their journey. If your church would like to help support one or more of the MOP participants, contact your district superintendent.
Following their journey, the participants commit to talking about their experiences to churches and civic groups at least five times. If your church is nearby, and you would like to invite one of the MOP youth to speak, contact your district office.
