Welcome to the Grand Traverse District. We are a district made up of 66 churches; starting all the way up north at Indian River then south to Charlevoix, Empire, Manistee and ending at Hart and Mears on the Lake Michigan shoreline. Then inland to Leroy, Cadillac, Kalkaska and Mancelona and every United Methodist church in between, all west of I-75.
Our vision is to “Connect, Encourage, and Thrive”.
We would love to have you join us at any one of the Grand Traverse District churches.
**THRIVE Youth Leadership Academy Now Accepting Nominations
Is there a high school student in your congregation who is ready to take the next step in leadership and discipleship? Nominate them for THRIVE Youth Leadership Academy! We will gather at Lake Louise Camp and Retreat Center July 16-20, 2017. Youth will spend time learning, reflecting, and growing as leaders. They will also have time for games, the beach and worship. This is for the student that is interested in growing in their faith and engaging with other students on the same journey.
Once a student is nominated they will receive an application. The application process is designed to ensure that a student knows what to expect and wants to fully participate.
Nomination forms are here: https://goo.gl/forms/gbs3Hhqte0sra1MX2
