In this episode, Brian and guest host Joel Polk speak with Robby Gallaty, Senior Pastor of Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville, Tennessee, about the three spaces of disciple-making in a church culture. Robby shares Long Hollow’s practice of promoting three different kinds of group experiences for its members: the large worship gathering, the small group Bible study, and a smaller group of 3-5 individuals who gather with the express purpose of learning discipleship. Robby discusses how church leadership must emulate the practice of disciple-making for their congregations, and he shares from his own experience about the blessings of a ministry devoted to in-depth spiritual growth.
