Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church

Mount Pisgah United Methodist Church is on a mission that is the foundation for everything we say, do, and believe. We are prayerfully working to transform lives by leading others to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The example of Jesus – loving our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36–40) – is ingrained in our every effort to reach neighbors in our immediate community and around the world. Love God, love people is what it is about. We invite you to join us.


4:19 Disciple Makers

4:19 School of Disciple Makers is an ongoing training that equips leaders to make disciples. This school provides the resources, knowledge, and skills needed to disciple those God entrusted to us. It is taught by our disciple-making lay leaders and church staff. The monthly, quarterly and annual training will build up your skill set in practical ways to lead groups and provide one-on-one discipleship. Attendance to 4:19 is optional and open to all.

“Come, follow me,

and I will send you out to fish for people.”

Matthew 4:19 (NIRV)
