General Agency: Discipleship Ministries

November 01, 2021

Discipleship Ministries

Discipleship Ministries connects laity and clergy around the world with contextually-appropriate resourcing and materials, training, consulting and networking to support spiritual formation, new church development and revitalization of local churches. It provides resources and services that assist clergy and laity leaders in annual conferences and local churches as they seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Discipleship Ministries also oversees The Upper Room.

General agencies are the regularly established councils, boards, commissions, committees, or other units with ongoing responsibilities that have been constituted by the General Conference. They provide essential services and ministries beyond the scope of individual local congregations and annual conferences through services and ministries that are highly focused, flexible, and capable of rapid response.

(For more about General Agencies see ¶701 of The United Methodist Book of Discipline)
