Meet a Connection Coach

Are you ready to get plugged in at Manchester UMC but not sure where to start?

Don’t worry…we are here to help!

Our team of Connection Coaches has been equipped with great tools, an in-depth knowledge of our ministries, and, most importantly, the gift of encouragement to help you discover the Next Step on your faith journey!

If you are interested in working with a Connection Coach, it’s as easy as 1,2,3…

Step #1 - Take the Spiritual Gifts Assessment

We believe that God has given you specific spiritual gifts and abilities to help people in our church, communities and world. Many people find it helpful to use a spiritual gifts discovery tool to affirm how God has gifted and shaped them to help others. With this in mind, we encourage you to take advantage of our new online Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment for valuable insights about your God-given talents.

This online tool takes about 10 minutes to complete. We strongly encourage you to print your results and bring to your Connection Coach appointment.

Note:   Answer each question to the best of your ability with the assurance that there is no right or wrong answer. A few of the assessment questions may include verbiage that is different than you typically experience at Manchester UMC.

step #2 - meet with a Connection coach

Please complete one form per person to meet with a Connection Coach.

Step #3 – Get Connected to Manchester UMC!

Once you and your Connection Coach have discussed and selected the ministries that best fit you and your spiritual gifts, we’ll connect you with those groups and/or their leaders so you can confidently take the Next Step on your faith journey at Manchester UMC! (You are not obligated to join the ministry.)

For assistance or questions, please contact Tiffany Conway.

Let There Be a Big Bang

Science teaches that the universe began 15 million years ago with a “Big Bang.” Genesis teaches that God created the “heavens and the earth” by speaking it all into existence. Human beings are composed of the same elements as the stars, which connects us to God’s creation in a very
