Community Discipleship & Development

The office of Community Discipleship & Development exists to enhance the mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ through vital relationships with congregations and their local communities through re-development of church properties.
Changing communities are in need of non-profit partnerships that sustain vitality through diverse services. Many of our church buildings exist with significant spaces alongside capital needs. This perfect storm has become an opportunity to enhance discipleship while restoring vitality to church and community life.

This new means of "doing church" exists throughout North Georgia and many conferences within our connection. Such settings also become ripe training milieus for laity, seminarians, and clergy.

As we continue to build both community and congregations, our path for a certain and preferred future is essential and clearly attainable.
