We have exciting plans this fall, with our Holistic Disciple Making Intensives and our new Online Community.

New Online Disciple Making Community
We are creating an online disciple making community. On September 28th we will introduce a free online community where you can join disciple-making conversations, webinars, seminars, Q&A times (every week), and discussion forums and groups.
We hope that we are creating a highly utilized online community that can be accessed by disciples easily and from anywhere in the world.
Initially, we plan to provide three engagement points for you each week within our online community.
- Our Discussion Forums Daily—we will seek to provide a forum for disciple making conversations and chats everyday with our new online community
- Our Q&A with Bobby and Discipleship.org partners—every Tuesday at 3 pm Central Time
- Our Holistic Disciple Making Intensives—webinars every Thursday at 10 am Central Time
As we head into the fall, we are looking to God to use Discipleship.org to transform many lives through people like you—and we are glad to be a part of your growth in Jesus-style disciple making.
I hope you will join us for all that we are doing.
For King Jesus,
Point Leader, Discipleship.org
