Adult Discipleship

Adult Ministries: The Journey to Discipleship


Here at Advent UMC, we hope you will join us on our Journey of Discipleship. When we choose to Commit to a Sunday School Class, Small Group or Weekly Bible Study with a group of people learning and sharing together, then we are choosing to grow in our faith on this Journey.

We hope individuals will become connected with people that are in their study and will challenge one another in faith as well as share their joy and pain, excitement and disappointments of everyday life.

For more information about our Adult Ministry offerings, please email Mark Jordan, the Director of Facilities and Adult Ministry or give Mark a call at (864) 288-8217. We would love to help you begin your journey to discipleship in Adult Ministries!
