Opening Doors to Discipleship

Opening Doors to Discipleship (ODTD) began as an ecumenical partnership between five Reformed denominations that developed a training and learning website for church leaders.

We recognize that contemporary Christian Education is at its best when we listen to diverse voices, collaborate with one another, and share our collective wisdom. Therefore, the new ODTD site was designed by a group of writers who represent these values. We invite you to explore the new ODTD website. The ODTD Quick Sheet is available to answer any questions you may have regarding ODTD.
