EC District Day Apart-Discipleship Pathway
All are welcome to attend.
Jaymee Glenn-Burns and Phil Carver, our Field Outreach Ministers in eastern Iowa, will be leading a day apart on Thursday, Feb. 1 focusing on creating and strengthening the discipleship pathway practices of our churches. They will invite us to explore the characteristics of a disciple of Jesus and how our churches can be more intentional in deepening the discipleship of every member throughout their lives. Our time together will include both plenary presentations and small group conversations to help all participants begin to design—or further develop—a discipleship pathway that fits the context of their churches. We hope you can join us at the Salem United Methodist Church for this event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Our theme for the 2017 Iowa Annual Conference was “Creating Difference Makers: inspiring and equipping grace‐filled followers of Jesus Christ to make a difference wherever they are.” Creating, inspiring, equipping and celebrating United Methodist Difference Makers in the state of Iowa goes hand in hand with our Conference’s Wildly Important Goal (WIG) for each United Methodist Church in the IAUMC to have a Discipleship Pathway in place by 2020. The role of the church is to make disciples (on purpose!) and the role of disciples are to make a difference in the world, wherever they are.
