Fresh Expressions United Methodist (FXUM)
Across the global pan-Methodist family, teams of practitioners are cultivating new Christian communities with new people, in new places, and in new ways. We are collecting and sharing imagination, wisdom, and practices from across the connection to help resource local churches and church planters in this work.
We, Path 1 at Discipleship Ministries, are excited to develop and execute a vision and strategic plan to further the FXUM movement within The United Methodist denomination and globally while curating a distinct FXUM in the Wesleyan theological tradition by empowering laity and clergy to cultivate contextual church plants in an increasingly diverse and post-Christendom context.
On the last Thursday of every month we will provide free webinars featuring experts and practitioners, laity and clergy, from local and global perspectives, working in both traditional and non-traditional settings.
