How to Mature People Through Disciple Making

At the 2017 National Disciple Making Forum, and LifeWay will focus on how to mature people through disciple making. After all, you will never be able to grow or multiply your church without first maturing your congregation through disciple making.

Daniel Im and his team at LifeWay are leading a track at the 2017 National Disciple Making Forum called, “How to Mature People Through Disciple Making”. Follow this track here.

This is one of the largest gatherings of disciple makers in North America with 65+ workshops, 15+ speakers, and 10+ tracks. Join us to learn practical ways to make disciples of Jesus this November 9-10 (Thursday-Friday). Register for the 2017 National Disciple Making Forum here.

I will begin the track by outlining how to approach discipleship from a systems perspective. Scott McConnell and Lizette Beard, with LifeWay Research, will then unpack the results of one of the largest multi-year studies on discipleship, and how you can leverage this research for disciple making. Matt Morris, with Disciples Path, will then uncover a reproducible path for disciple making that ends with multiplication. I will then put this all together by helping you create a discipleship pathway for your church. Matt Morris will finish out our track by outlining ways that you can leverage technology for discipleship.
