Church Development

“Making disciples and transforming the world” is our AIM!

Our charge is to assist the United Methodist churches of Indiana as they make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We support this important mission through our Redevelopment and Church Planting teams, and our ministries Adapt, Impact, and Multiply. 

Our Vision is to create and develop new and existing vibrant congregations that are

  • missional,
  • multiplying, and
  • team and group based,

so that our congregations are producing

  • faithful disciples,
  • fruitful leaders and
  • transformed communities! 

The purpose of our blog is to engage with you this exciting task. We hope to provide you with ideas, resources, and stories that will help you and others carry out our mission. The links in the right sidebar will help you find tools to help your church fulfill its mission.  

Please share your story of how God is at work in your church as it makes disciples and transforms the world. You can send it to Ed Fenstermacher at
