Wanted: disciple-making stories

“Story is not just where we are, it’s where we came from and where we’re going,” writes Scott McClellan, author of Tell Me a Story: Finding God (and Ourselves) Through Narrative.
There are stories of disciple-making happening every day in Arkansas. Using communication tools at our disposal, such as the Arkansas United Methodist, the newly redesigned Conference website (arumc.org) and the Network for Discipleship and Mission, these stories can be shared with multiple audiences in multiple ways.
Share your story
If you know of a group or individual who is living out the church’s shared mission, “to make disciples of Jesus Christ equipped to transform the world with excellence and passion,” the rest of the UMC in Arkansas needs to know about it. 
Likewise, if you know of a church holding itself accountable to one or more of the Core Measures listed below, we want to hear that story, too. Sharing these stories helps inspire others to think about the ways they can reach the mission field within their own communities.
If you have a story of faithful Arkansans reaching their mission field or making disciples in new ways—or both!—contact the Rev. Martha Taylor at mtaylor@arumc.org or 501-324-8035.
