The Kingsport District of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church is committed to transforming the 21st Century World by recapturing cultural relevance in truth and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through the making and empowering of disciples of Jesus Christ.
- Saving Lives
- Sharing Jesus
- Serving the needy
- Sustaining and transforming community ethics and principles
We believe God is calling us to resource our churches in specific transformational ministry strategies that lead to new life and transformation in the local church. Over the past 3 1/2 years the District Rethink Team has led our churches into new life, professions of faith, vital worship, and reclaiming their local community as a mission ground to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through making disciples and serving the least, the last and the lost. With the recognition that the District Superintendent will become the District missional strategist and transformative catalyst, it is apparent that the team approach and utilization of District resources, gifts and abilities must be aligned and deployed in support of the District Strategy. Consequently, the need to supplement our connectional and transformative initiatives becomes paramount.
