The Connectional Ministries team is pleased to offer East Ohio Conference clergy and laity the opportunity to learn and grow by engaging in online courses offered via the Portico platform, named for a place where people gathered to learn in ancient times.
You can create a free Portico login to access online courses created by the East Ohio Conference Connectional Ministries office team, as well as content created by other UMC conferences. The online format allows learners to take courses when their schedule permits and to move at their own pace. Those learners can then meet in-person to study a topic more deeply and to nurture relationships.
Amplify Media Orientation Video Available on Portico
Our East Ohio Conference has partnered with Amplify Media, a division of the United Methodist Publishing House, to offer local churches a discounted opportunity to download small-group resources. This partnership succeeds the former EOC Media Center in supporting our shared mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Amplify Media created a video tutorial to orient East Ohio Conference churches to its resources and explain the first-year 50% new member discount available to our churches. The video can be viewed on Portico, the free online curriculum resource available to all EOC clergy and laity. Signing up is easy – and free. Portico enables users to take online courses when their schedule permits and to move at their own pace.
