The Five Clusters of the Discipleship Adventure


The Discipleship Adventure

Through the inspirations of our present bishop, Marcus Matthews, La Plata United Methodist adopted "The Discipleship Adventure" as it's guiding principle for ministry and organization. The Discipleship Adventure highlights the five main areas of emphasis and ministry in the life of a church. These five emphases are how we now have organized all the ministries of our church.
