From Membership to Discipleship workshop offered

Phil Maynard
You are invited to participate in a workshop entitled “From Membership to Discipleship,” led by Phil Maynard.

The workshop is being offered twice:
Saturday, April 26, 2014, 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at Shiremanstown UMC, 125 E. Main St, Shiremanstown, PA 17011; and again on Sunday, April 27, 2014, 2:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at First UMC, 604 Market St, Williamsport, PA 17701

The key shifts that will be explored are:

  • From fellowship to hospitality.
  • From worship as an event to worship as a lifestyle.
  • From membership to discipleship.
  • From serve us to service.
  • From ‘survival mentality’ to generosity.

Phil Maynard serves as Director of the Coaching Network and Church Strategist for Path1 (General Board of Discipleship, UMC) and Director of Excellence in Ministry Coaching.  After several years serving as the Director of Congregational Excellence in the Florida Conference (UMC) Phil has moved into a full-time ministry of coaching, consulting, and training.

Phil is an Endorsed Coach (UMEA), a pastor with 25 years experience of growing healthy churches, and has four graduate degrees (M.Div., Th.M., M.S.Ed., and D.Min.) all with a focus on growing mature disciples and healthy churches.

These workshops are provided as ongoing support for all pastors and congregations that have been part of Matthew 28 or other consultation process, but all are invited.

The cost is $15 per person for those whose churches have been part of the Matthew 28 process; $30 per person for those who have not been part of Matthew 28; or $25 per person for any group of 4 or more from a church not already part of Matthew 28. Included in the registration fee is a copy of Phil Maynard’s book Shift, a meal, and .5 CEUs.

Online registration, with the ability to pay by credit card or check, is available at (look under “Events” on the main page.)
