The mission of the United Methodist Church is to fulfill the Great Commission of “Making Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” There are many avenues in which a disciple is made but intentionality is key for this transformational process. Discipleshift is an intentional discipleship model for churches through small groups. This discipleship system can be learned easily and implemented with our clergy and laity.
The Vital Congregations team is hosting three Discipleshift retreats in 2019. This is a two-day retreat where you will come and experience the transformational small group experience. Fifty people is our maximum for this experience so it is a first come basis.

After the retreat, we will offer follow up training of facilitators who are looking to implement Discipleshift in their church. This will be done online and led by Drew Oakley and Jim Fant, who have implemented this model in their local churches here in KY.
The cost for the retreat is your travel accommodations and your meal on Friday evening. Here are two options for local places for you and the other member(s) of your church to stay.
