Meet Your District Discipleship Coaches

The Central Texas Conference’s video introduction series of the members of the CTC’s District Discipleship Teams continues as we meet those who have answered the call to serve as District Discipleship Coaches.

Making disciples of Jesus Christ is at the core of everything we do in the Central Texas Conference. The establishment of District Discipleship Coaches as part of the Forward to a New Spring initiative is designed to provide clergy and lay leadership with dedicated resources and work with each church’s unique character and mission field to develop, improve, implement and grow discipleship pathways that lead to a vibrant culture of discipleship in each of our local churches. Please view the video below featuring Revs. Joseph Nader, Sharon Reid and Gary White as they briefly touch on how they view their role as a District Discipleship Coach, some of the plans and visions they have in the short- and long-term for their district areas and how each is eagerly looking forward to contacting and beginning to work the clergy and lay leadership in each district as we together journey Forward to a New Spring in our wildly important goal of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
