Tools for Discipleship

The mission of The United Methodist Church is "to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world." The following resources may help churches as they seek to help people in their local communities become world-changing disciples.

Discipleship Ministries

As part of a global denomination, Indiana United Methodist congregations can take advantage of many resources created through conference tithes and offerings. Discipleship Ministries helps local church, district, and conference leaders fulfill the shared dream of making world-changing disciples. The agency connects leaders with needed resourcing, training, consulting, and networking that support spiritual formation, new church development, and revitalization of local churches. 

Discipleship Ministries has long provided resources in the areas of Christian education, worship, music, evangelism, new church development, stewardship, funding and financial management, lay leadership development, age-level (children, youth, adult) and family ministries, small-group ministries, ethnic local church concerns, devotional life, spiritual formation, and other areas related to the lives of people and the ministries of congregations. Many of these resources are available as FREE downloads here.
