During this time, the way that churches will have to approach discipleship has changed. Every principle and practice that we have trained our group leaders with has at worst become obsolete and at best needs to be contextualized to our current context.
Our team is currently working diligently to equip our group leaders at Long Hollow as well as create resources for our Replicate network. Check back regularly as we will release new material as it is developed. For now, take a look at the following resources:
Long Hollow Group Leader Podcast
The podcast is the best way to stay updated on how we are leading groups at Long Hollow. This podcast is the resource we are using to train Long Hollow Life Group and D-Group Leaders. As we create new content, we are releasing it in the episode show notes.
Making Disciples Podcast
As part of the Great Commision we are all called to make disciples who make disciples. The Making Disciples Podcast with Pastor Robby will help equip you to do just that! You will not only learn about the importance of discipleship but also some practical ways to implement discipleship within your church.
As we find ourselves in a season of worry and confusion it is important we lean into God’s Word. The Foundations 260 Bible reading plan
is designed for families to read and journal through the Word together. Having a reading plan will help keep you on track and constantly wrestling with God’s Word.
The Foundations New Testament plan
walks you through the entire New Testament in a year and you’re only reading one chapter a day five days a week. This plan is great for new believers or for those who struggle to get into the Word daily because it helps them develop the most important spiritual discipline, Bible engagement.
