By Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church
Means of Grace, a podcast from the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, equips church leaders through expertise and examples. Twice a month, we feature local experts on a variety of topics from leadership to innovation and share examples of churches in our conference reaching their communities in news ways through mission engagement, Fresh Expressions and much more. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, defined Means of Grace as the outward signs, words or actions that are the ordinary channels conveying God’s grace to the souls of people. So when we’re talking about leadership or discipleship or an outreach initiative, it’s about more than doing a program well, it’s a means of God’s grace to the world. Rev. Kim Ingram, Rev. Luke Edwards, Jesse Enniss and Melissa McGill host. Our theme song was written and performed by Rev. Kyle Sigmon, an ordained deacon and a talented musician in Boone, NC.
