Would you like to spend the last 60-90-minutes of the day working with someone specifically on your church’s Discipleship Pathway? CLD Staff, local Clergy and Discipleship Directors will be assigned based on registration to work with interested pastors or church teams during the last session of the day. Bring your ideas, bring your plan outline or your plan in process and receive specific feedback to continue to refine and develop your Discipleship Pathway.

Rev. Junius B. Dotson

General Secretary, UMC Discipleship


Discipleship Ministries believes that for too long The United Methodist Church has looked for a quick fix to help guide our discipleship efforts.

Therefore, we are called to be in relationship with the communities that surround our churches.

We are called to recapture a spirit of movement. We must shift our thinking from fixing churches to true discipleship.

We encourage you to watch this video, and learn more about #SeeAllThePeople.
