Congregational Development


 

God calls on God’s people to make disciples. A sign and a result of deepening discipleship is church growth. The BWC’s Office of Congregational Development oversees and nurtures new faith expressions in creating new places for new people and assists in the renewal and revitalizing of faith communities.

By being relevant and vital, United Methodists will touch more lives and draw more people to Christ. Our primary purpose is not to help churches grow, but rather we seek to help them reach more people with the good news of the Gospel, to grow more people as gifted and called disciples of Jesus, and to send more people into the world to love and serve God and their neighbors in all they do. We provide tools, resources, workshops, events and training to help leaders and congregations more effectively make disciples for the transformation of the world.
