To fulfill our mission as United Methodists, we must offer the hope of Jesus Christ in all aspects of life. Discipleship Ministries uses the acronym H.O.P.E. to remind us of the core process of making disciples:
H – Hospitality
O – Offer Christ
P – Purpose
E – Engagement
How is your congregation welcoming others, leading them to commit their lives to Christ, nurturing them in the faith, and sending them into the world to serve?

Leading, Caring, Communicating – these are the three tenets of Lay Servant Ministries.
What started with John Wesley continues today. Lay persons play a vital role across The United Methodist Church in spreading the Word of God, and being the hands and feet of His son Jesus Christ.
If you are interested in taking a more active role in sharing your faith, but you aren’t sure where to start, consider taking one or more of the Lay Servant Ministries training courses offered across the East Ohio Conference.
Learn more about Lay Servant Ministries and how you can become involved.
PLAN – To help your congregation plan for the new church year, here are the EOC Statistical Tables for 2014. Use them to examine where your congregation is currently, and to reflect on how you arrived here.
