The Discipleship Resource Team cares about the needs of the local churches in our conference. We are here to help our churches be faithful to our mission statement.
We thank all of you who answered our survey. It has helped us see where the general needs lie. The data showed us that churches face the most challenges in making disciples through small groups, Christian education and Bible study. We also learned that a majority of our churches are facing the challenge of reaching 19- to 35-year-olds.
We are encouraging you to talk with us at our table at the 2016 Annual Conference, where we will have information about ways to address the needs in the local church in discipleship and formation.
Thank you for allowing us to walk with you as we walk with Jesus together. If you have any thoughts, you can contact me, Pastor Pat Bollinger, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
