Join the movement and go and make disciples in an ever-changing world. Through God’s grace, United Methodists, along with other Christians, are called to discern and participate in God’s mission in the world. We must conceive the future of the church from a missional perspective. Individually and corporately, we must take stock of our Wesleyan heritage in all its fullness and ask how we can reengage that heritage in order to participate in the missio Dei.

These essays are the fruit of a colloquy sponsored by the United Methodist General Board of Higher Education and Ministry and the Association of United Methodist Theological Schools, which convened at Boston School of Theology in November 2017.
