Ministry-Centered Affinity Groups.

Ministry is better together. Maybe you want to brainstorm with others involved in the same ministry (i.e. Children, Students, Lay Leadership) or you are pursuing transformation as a church body and want to bounce ideas off others who have been there. Find the group that's right for you. 


New Places For New People


Church Transformation

The Blue Ridge District Church Transformation Team is designed to help churches through necessary times of transformation. We believe that for churches to be agents of God’s transforming grace for their communities, sometimes congregations need to be transformed, too.


Church Legacy Initiative

The Church Legacy Initiative (CLI) is a new ministry of the Western North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church, in collaboration with the United Methodist Foundation of Western North Carolina and supported by a grant from The Duke Endowment.  Its purpose is to assist churches in making faithful decisions about their future and providing a legacy which will help to make disciples in this and future generations.
