Wesleyan Leadership Conference October 13-15

Date Posted: 8/16/2011

The General Board of Discipleship will be hosting the 2011 Wesleyan Leadership Conference in Nashville on October 13-15. The Wesleyan Leadership Conference aims to help The United Methodist Church recover what it means to be Christian and Methodist in the 21st century. One step in this process is to ask the question:

How do we develop disciple-making communities that are centered in the work of Jesus Christ in the world?


At the Wesleyan Leadership Conference you will explore the vision, message, and method that helped John Wesley lead a revival among the People called Methodists. You will learn how the same vision, message, and method will bring revival in the church today.
