Discipleship Team | Quadrennial Training — Living the United Methodist Way

What’s the Quadrennial Training? What was it like?

Checkout this "Trekkie" Video Report of the Event...

We attended the Quadrennial training for connectional ministries! This workshop-filled weekend sponsored by the general church offered plenaries, inspiring worship and training and information sessions. The four areas of focus were introduced to be implemented in all UMChurches for the next four years!

  • Focus Area #1 Developing principled Christian leaders for the church and world
  • Focus Area #2 Creating new places for new people by starting new congregrations and revitalizing existing ones.
  • Focus Area #3 Engaging in ministry with the poor to eliminate poverty
  • Focus Area #4 Stamping out killer diseases by improving health globally

Holston is already in ministry in all of these areas----BUT there is more work to be done and we are called to expand our ministries in these four areas over the next four years.
