The Upper Room Onboarding

Welcome to The Upper Room's Onboarding experience! The Upper Room Onboarding is offered to those individuals who have recently become employees of Discipleship Ministries/The Upper Room--or to those interested in brushing up on their knowledge of The Upper Room.

Engaging in this eCourse is one portion of a multi-module onboarding experience, so this is your place to start learning. Here, you'll gather a basic overview of the history of The Upper Room, its culture, and the relationship between The Upper Room, Discipleship Ministries, and The United Methodist Church. Conversations and gatherings with your supervisor, Human Resources personnel, other Upper Room staff and leadership will supplement our online course content.

Should you have questions as you go, reach out to your supervisor or to The Upper Room onboarding lead, Sharon Conley.
