NASHVILLE, Tenn. March 23, 2015 /Discipleship Ministries/ – The addition of Mighty Rasing to the staff of Discipleship Ministries as the new director of program development for Central Conferences will bolster the effectiveness of the United Methodist Church’s youth and young adult ministries in those areas of the world.

Rasing has served for the last five years as the regional staff person for the Young People’s Ministries (YPM) unit of Discipleship Ministries in the Philippines.

“Mighty’s gifts in technology and social media will be a tremendous gift to the vital communication function of this new position,” said Michael Ratliff, Associate General Secretary at Discipleship Ministries and head of YPM. “I anticipate significant expansion of our effectiveness in reaching and developing young leaders throughout our global connection to offer young people Christ, resource them as they grow into disciples and engage them in world-changing ministries.”

Rasing previously served as the youth representative to the global Division on Ministries with Young People (DMYP) from the Philippines Central Conference where he was the national youth president.

In the next two months, Rasing will visit every continent where the UMC is ministering with young people, Ratliff said. He will work out of the Nashville offices of Discipleship Ministries and can be reached by email at mrasing@umcdiscipleship.org.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
