Equip yourself for effective ministry at Pathways to Discipleship

5/27/2015

Churches looking for new ideas, networking opportunities and practical, quality training for their pastors, parishioners, staff and leaders need look no further than this year’s Pathways to Discipleship conference.

Scheduled for Saturday, August 8 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Warner Robins, the training event will offer participants more than 30 workshops, plus five all-day workshops, to choose from, each designed to help congregations become healthier and to fulfill the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ.

The training, which starts at 10:30 a.m. and lasts until 3:30 p.m., features workshops on a variety of subjects, from children and youth-focused workshops to spiritual discipline workshops to those focused on missions and outreach. Classes include “Seeking God’s Unique Vision,” “Becoming a Volunteer Magnet,” and “Relationship Principles of Jesus,” among many others.

“With a list of more than 30 workshops, Pathways to Discipleship seeks to impact the leadership of the local church in many ways,” said Rev. Denise Walton, Assistant to the Bishop for Connectional Ministries. “We look forward to this training event and hope to see you there.”

Resources to help promote Pathways in your church can be found at www.sgaumc.org/pathways. The design team urges local church leaders to carpool to the event to minimize travel costs and to maximize the benefits of the day by continuing the learning conversation during the return trip.

Register online at www.sgaumc.org/pathways. The registration deadline is July 26, and the conference costs $20 per person. A boxed lunch from Chick-fil-A is included in the registration fee. Safe Sanctuaries compliant childcare is available for newborn to fifth-grade children at a cost of $10 per child, which covers the cost of their lunch. .5 CEU credits are available for this event.
