Culture of Disciple Making

Over the last decades, church leaders have tried different models for reaching un-churched people. From 'attraction' models to 'missional' models to 'gospel-centered' models, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. While all these approaches have merit, something fundamental to the mission of the church is still missing: Discipleship!

Making disciples is the mandate God has given to His church, but too often our churches fall short of their mission. We fill our pews, but fall to create committed disciples.

Let's Discipleshift!

3 Truths about multiplying we learned from Jesus

Speaker: Dave & Sue Ferguson

About: Jesus' vision for the church was a movement that went from Jerusalem to Judea into Samaria and then the ends of the earth! This is how the mission would be accomplished. In this workshop we will identify some very practical ways based on Jesus' leadership style that we can lead in our local settings that will create movement and contribute to the Jesus mission.
