WME trains, encourages, and challenges Christ followers to live more fully as committed disciples of the Jesus way, to share their faith with greater love and boldness, and to impact their world with greater courage and integrity on behalf of Jesus Christ.
Our discipleship ministries embody a holistic understanding of Christian faith as lived out through word, deed, and sign. We attend to the needs of Christ followers, empowering them to share their faith more confidently and with greater grace in the unique context of their various relationships. We attend to the needs of congregations, providing resources to strengthen their witness in their communities.
EMBRACE | FAITH-SHARING
I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective when you perceive all the good that we may do for Christ. ~Philemon 6
A major commitment of World Methodist Evangelism is to multiply the faith-sharers of the Gospel. We work toward that goal by equipping and empowering Christ followers to share their faith in Jesus Christ with confidence and competence.
Using WME’s Embrace material in conjunction with the Faith Sharing New Testament, Christ followers are given the tools they need to share with authenticity and grace.
At the heart of our work in equipping Christ followers to share their faith is our commitment to enabling multiplication. To that end, Embrace resources are adaptable and reproducible in order that those who have received training can then train others in their own contexts.
Since 1996, WME has been training Christ followers on every continent to share their faith, and the Faith Sharing New Testament has been translated into over 50 languages. Click here to learn more about the Embrace material, or here to request Kimberly Reisman to lead an event.
THE WESLEYAN PATTERN OF PRAYER AND FASTING
Since 1980, World Methodist Evangelism has empowered young people to live as grace filled, faith sharing, disciples of Jesus Christ. Between 1980 and 2010, over 6,500 young people, ages 17-30 from 60 countries have been a part of our International Christian Youth Conferences on Evangelism (ICYCE). These transformative experiences have taken place in England (1980), Bahamas (1983), Australia (1987), Mexico (1990), Germany (1994), the United States (1998), Northern Ireland (2002), Brazil (2005), and Korea (2010).
Renamed Metanoia to highlight the importance of spiritual transformation, World Methodist Evangelism is continuing this vital ministry in the worldwide Methodist Wesleyan family.
John Wesley said all he needed was 100 people – lay or clergy – who love God and hate evil, and they would shake the gates of hell and usher in the Kingdom of God. Through Metanoia, WME is raising up young people who love God and hate evil. We are shaking the gates of hell as we empower these young Christ followers to deepen their faith, share it with integrity and grace, and impact their world on behalf of Jesus Christ.
Building on the foundation of ICYCE, every three years young adults from across the globe gather for faith strengthening, mission empowering, horizon expanding times of transformation. Click here for information on the next Metanoia gathering.
