Developing an Intentional Discipleship System: A Guide for Congregations
Developing a Discipleship System: A Guide for Congregations is a practical guide for congregations who find themselves stuck researching community demographics, pouring over worship attendance metrics, and fixing their aging structures, yet lack a system for creating relationships with those who surround their church. We can’t program our way back to vitality. Rather, it requires a movement toward discipleship-making, and it begins with a process that reaches into your community.
Begin a conversation in your congregation around creating a lifestyle of intentional discipleship. This booklet is your first step!
