Making Disciples Like Jesus!

Most people say they know what the Great Commission is. Most leaders say that Evangelism and Discipleship is a priority in their ministries. Yet, many church members feel they have never been discipled and they are currently not discipling anyone. Too many believers have not shared their faith with anyone in the last six months and congregations rarely experience conversion growth. What is the disconnect? Why do leaders who believe in the value of discipleship rarely see the actual fruits of discipleship? Could it be that they are not following Jesus’ model for discipleship? Are they becoming keepers of the aquarium instead of becoming fishers of men? In this session you will learn some unique ways that Jesus made His disciples in the first century. You will see the "Great Omission” of the church today and hear the challenge to be transformed as a Great Commission person!
