KidMin Discipleship Plan



Children and youth learn about faith first at home, second at church. The purpose of this guide is to paint a broad picture of what children and youth will experience while participating in the life and ministries of Dyersburg First United Methodist Church. This is not a checklist, but simply a road map for each child’s spiritual journey.

If you have any questions about the Discipleship Plan, please reach out to Director of Children's Ministries Tori Armstrong at tfrazier@fumcdyersburg.com .
