The focus of the Laity Summit in June of 2019 was to energize and equip the lay leadership of our local churches to help lead the transformation taking place throughout our conference in response to our Wildly Important Goal (WIG). You will hear stories from people whose lives were changed (even saved) via their relationship with Jesus and the local church. We also shared best practices on how laity can best partner with clergy to make disciples of Jesus Christ, and much more.


Below you will find video interviews of five growing New Faith Communities from various districts throughout the conference. Please take a look! We hope these videos will inspire your congregation to help lead in the transformation happening throughout the Central Texas Conference. When laity and clergy partner together to make disicples of Jesus Christ, transformation will happen!
