Partnerships

The Minnesota Conference has a number of partnerships across the U.S. and abroad, including:

UCC Philippines


The Conference works with the South East Mindanao Jurisdiction of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP). Through our partnership, we experience the global community of Christ and are challenged to consider global implications of our ministries and of our nation’s foreign policy. Frequent visits of teams from the Minnesota Conference UCC to the Philippines and of teams from the UCCP to Minnesota have nurtured life-long relationships and established a mutual respect for each other’s ministries, gifts, contexts, and challenges.
