Means of Grace Podcast

Means of Grace, a podcast from the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, equips church leaders through expertise and examples. Every week, we feature local experts on a variety of topics from leadership to innovation and share examples of churches in our conference reaching their communities in new ways through mission engagement, Fresh Expressions and much more. Rev. Kim Ingram, Rev. Luke Edwards, Jesse Enniss, Melissa McGill, Caroline Wood and Brian Mateer host. 

Our goal is to equip church leaders through expertise and examples in Western North Carolina. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, defined Means of Grace as the outward signs, words or actions that are the ordinary channels conveying God’s grace to the souls of people. We break them into two categories – works of piety – like prayer, studying the scriptures, worshiping together and sharing in the sacraments – and works of mercy – doing good works, visiting the sick, feeding the hungry, seeking justice, and working to end oppression and discrimination. So when we’re talking about leadership or discipleship or an outreach initiative, it’s about more than doing a program well, it’s a means of God’s grace to the world.
