Join Our Free Webinar This Thursday on “Relational Discipleship” w/ Jim Putman and Luke Yetter


Do you lack a practical understanding of how to use Jesus’ method for making disciples? Do you struggle with knowing how to be a relational disciple maker? We believe biblical discipleship is the core mission of the church. That is, Jesus’ method of discipleship is the best method for fulfilling the mission of the church.

One organization who is committed to Jesus’ method of discipleship is The Relational Discipleship Network. The way they describe Jesus’ method, which is based upon relationships and intentionality, is “intentional relational discipleship”.

That’s what Jim Putman and Luke Yetter (from the Relational Discipleship Network) will be talking about on a free webinar.

Join us for the webinar this Thursday, August 16th at 1:00 pm (CDT).

Jim and Luke will talk about how they personally practice relational discipleship, and how they help other pastors and churches to do it. There will also be time for live Q&A during the webinar.

Jim and Luke will answer questions like these:

  • What is Intentional Relational Discipleship?
  • How did Jesus model it?
  • How can we practice it today personally?
  • How can we practice it in our churches?


Jim Putman is a leading voice and advocate for Jesus’ method of discipleship. While he is a lead pastor, author, and trainer—he is most importantly a practitioner of discipleship the way Jesus did it.

Join us with Jim Putman, Luke Yetter, and the Relational Discipleship Network Team, as they describe their personal journeys of relational discipleship.

For Jesus’ Kingdom,

Executive Director,
