United Methodists believe God’s prevenient grace is at work in every person … in particular the people who may never walk into our existing churches. New faith community planters work to create safe places for un-churched or de-churched people to explore their faith, consider what it means to follow Jesus Christ, and then practice discipleship together with new friends. These communities gather in malls, cafes, storefronts, bars, homes, fellowship halls and restaurants, and each one is committed to being God’s love with their neighbors.
The New Faith Communities ministry is nurturing a “planting culture” where everyone feels free to create these new places for new people. There are eight teams of people working to create a system to support, train, and resource planters.
