    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    Perspectives: Meet the DLTs

    Meet the DLTs: Mountain View District

    March 10, 2020 / By Rev. Nancy Adams

    I have had the privilege of working with the Mountain View District Leadership Team since 2014. While there have been membership changes in the past six years, our focus has always been on deepening discipleship in the District.

    We have developed a three-session approach to come along-side churches to aid them in developing their disciple-making systems. The first session is on “Intentional Discipleship – Knowing Your Why.” Session two covers the definition of a disciple, characteristics of a disciple, and components of a disciple-making plan. Session three includes examples of disciple-making systems, realizing that they need to be very contextual.

    Each session is 90 minutes: 45 minutes of quality worship followed by 45 minutes of presentation and congregations working on their own disciple-making plans.

    Friends, people are living and dying without Jesus. What are we doing about it?  We are excited to see how God will use the efforts of our DLT, so that more persons will become disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples of Jesus Christ, and on, and on, and on…  May it be so!
