I. District fellowship organizations also provide significant opportunities for district equipping for disciple making. Evangelism is a declared purpose of the United Methodist Men and JUMP groups could easily be incorporated with the EMS program.[1] Through the forming of new circles, a Discipleship System can revitalize United Methodist Women units in local churches. These and other district fellowships can be significant sponsors of district level training in making disciples for their members.
