*** UPDATE***
All spots for the pilot program are filled. Thank you to those who signed up! Stay tuned for a conference-wide book club (same book) starting in February.

The NIC Discipleship Task Force is seeking 12 people from across the conference to participate in a pilot 4-session book discussion starting in early January. Participants will be reading and discussing "Kneeling with Giants" by Gary Neal Hansen. After the pilot, the Task Force will launch a conference-wide book club reading this same book. The intention is to deepen our prayer lives and our faith journey, as well as make connections and friendships with other United Methodists around the conference in person or via Zoom.

If you are interested in participating in the pilot, please email Amania Drane, NIC Strategic Initiatives Project Manager at by Wednesday, Dec. 22.
