Does your congregation struggle with sharing their faith with others or wrestle with how to reach out beyond the walls?

Heather Lear, Director of Evangelism at Discipleship Ministries, will join us for our clergy meeting on February 13 to unpack what contextualized, Wesleyan evangelism looks like in the 21st Century. Come join us at McKendree UMC, 3537 Maiden Hwy, Lincolnton beginning at 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
She will return to the Catawba Valley District in April to work with the laity on telling their stories and looking at both the congregational and their everyday lives through an evangelistic lens.
