#BeUMC Videos

The #BeUMC initiative reminds us of who we are as people of God called United Methodists. This grassroots effort is built upon powerful stories of congregations and people living their faith, and celebrates what draws us to The United Methodist Church and all that we aspire to be. The following brief narratives are from clergy and laity of the Central Texas Conference who sent in videos sharing a few of the reasons why they choose to #BeUMC.
Visit ctcumc.org/be-umc to learn more and get info on how you can share your #BeUMC story.

Videos are in order of date posted to the CTC Facebook page, with the newest entries at the top.
