July 27th-30th


The United States is experiencing a wave of new united Methodist churches - the most ne Wesleyan faith communities that our nation has seen in about three generations!  It is a wondrous and amazing time!  Conferences that planted only a few faith communities in a decade are thinking about planting up to ten in a single year!  Yet, in this new blitz of church planting, many of yesterday's strategies don't work as well as once they did. Some of the strategies that work in the heartland don't work as well on the coasts.

The Path 1 Team of The united Methodist Church is committed to resourcing United Methodist people in all fifty states to plant to new churches appropriate to the missional challenge in each community.
