Introducing Lessons Learned, a New Online Teaching Series from Discipleship Ministries and Path 1!

This amazing 9 session course is led by some of the most effective church planters in the United Methodist Church.

This course is for anyone thinking about starting a church or to those who have been planting their whole lives.
