Pastor, I would like to invite you to join me for a round table gathering that I will be facilitating at the campus of the North American Mission Board on September 29-30, 2014. It will be a time for pastors to meet and engage in a time of fellowship, encouragement, and leadership development in an encouraging, friendly atmosphere. At this gathering, I will be sharing insights from my upcoming book, Rediscovering Discipleship, expected to be available in the fall of 2015. Here are a few of the topics I will cover:
- A brief overview of the discipleship ministries of prominent theologians, preachers, and pastors throughout the ages, as well as John Wesley’s three-fold strategy for exponential growth in the local church (which we have adopted at Brainerd Baptist Church).
- The Hebraic method Jesus utilized and why you should implement it.
- The misunderstanding responsible for the discipleship coma the church has been in for 400 years.
- The inherent M.A.R.C.S. of a discipleship group:
- Missional; Accountable; Reproducible; Communal; & Scriptural.
- Roadblocks that hinder disciple-making in your church.
