The Evangelical Movement is a group of clergy and laity who work together to conserve some of the most treasured possessions of Methodism: a strong view of Scriptural authority, a high view of the divinity of Christ, an ancient view regarding God’s blessing of and boundaries for human sexuality, and a passionate view of the importance of sharing the Gospel with those who don’t yet believe it.
We operate throughout the year as a connection point for those that are concerned about the life of The United Methodist Church and desire to see her continue to be a beacon of hope and obedience among our sister denominations.
Our leaders are always seeking appropriate ways to work within the covenant of the church outlined in the Book of Discipline to support and connect those of like minds. The primary event that we hold each year is a meal at Lake Junaluska during the Meeting of the Western North Carolina Annual Conference. During this meal, we offer a time of teaching and encouragement led by an accomplished United Methodist who exemplifies what it means to be one who bears the name of Christ in the World as a Scripture-loving, Christ-centered, and is passionate about sharing the Good News.
One of our other connecting points is our FaceBook Group, which offers news, commentary, and fellowship to our brothers and sisters.
