REACH! With Missional Communities

This REACH! event will feature Rev. Rachel Gilmore. It has been rescheduled from Sept. 23 to Sept. 30.

About this Session

Making new disciples requires that followers of Jesus deeply engage their communities in transformational ways.  Rachel Gilmore comes to us having experience and wisdom on forming missional communities that accomplish that deep engagement.  If you are looking for principles to move out of your building and into your neighborhood with greater effectiveness, register for this Reach! webinar.

 A presentation recording and materials will be available on this page soon after the workshop.

    About the Speaker

    Rev. Rachel Gilmore is a graduate of Duke Divinity school whose first appointment, in 2009, was to plant a church in Virginia Beach. The church grew from 10 people to over 400 people active in the life of the church within 10 years. She launched online Facebook devotionals in 2016 which averaged 200 in attendance and started a digital discipleship program at her church in 2018. In 2019, Rachel joined the staff at Path 1/Discipleship Ministries as the Director of Recruiting, Assessing and Training for lay and clergy church planters. She has designed trainings that have been used by half a dozen denominations on four continents and has contributed to four books related to church planting in the last year. You can listen to her weekly “Field Preachers” podcast on iTunes or Soundcloud. She is married to another United Methodist elder and they have two children who also consider themselves to be church planters!
