United Methodist Seminars on National and International Affairs, or the Seminar Program, provides custom-designed, interactive educational seminars throughout the year for groups to study complex social issues from a perspective of faith.
Emphasis is placed on the United Methodist Church's commitment to:
- Human rights
- Racial justice
- World peace
- Global justice
This program enables you to acquire a global education in light of biblical and theological reflections. Seminars provide important mission education opportunities, particularly for youth.
For more information, contact us. The Seminar Program is sponsored and funded by United Methodist Women.

Groups can set up a seminar at any time of year. The length of the seminar depends on the desires of the group. Although most seminars are for two days, seminars can be one day, two days or longer.
Groups select their own topic for their seminar. Recent seminar topics include; economic justice, human trafficking, immigration, environmental justice and human rights.
Seminars are $12 per person per day. The Seminar Program asks that you bring a minimum of 20 people. Under special circumstances we will work with groups of fewer than 20 participants. However, you would still need to pay as if there were 20 participants (i.e. $240 per day).
In New York City, seminars are held at the Church Center for the United Nations, directly across the street from the United Nations in mid-town Manhattan.
In Washington D.C. seminars are held at the United Methodist Building, adjacent to the U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court.
