General Secretary for Discipleship Ministries

The Board of Directors of Discipleship Ministries is seeking to fill the General Secretary position.

Discipleship Ministries’ vision is “to see a vital and vibrant church on fire to transform the world.” The
Agency has recently completed a rigorous three-year process to create a more holistic, integrated and
focused approach in assisting United Methodist leaders in their disciple-making efforts. Discipleship
Ministries has identified three overarching strategic priorities.

The agency’s three strategic priorities are:
1. An intentional discipleship system (or pathway) in every church rooted in our identity with Christ,
focusing on explicitly anti-racist discipleship.
2. Equipping churches to engage their communities, particularly those for whom the church has
become irrelevant, recognizing a diverse mission field.
3. Creating and lifting up local, contextual resources globally, working closely with the UMC ethnic
plans, caucus groups, and other partners around the world.

The culture of Discipleship Ministries is healthy, and the staff is strong and well-positioned for the next
chapter in our service to the Church. Our prayer is that God will bring the right person to continue to lead
within this culture, among this team, for the sake of our vision and strategic priorities.
