Webinar: “Relational Discipleship“
Featuring: Jim Putman & Luke Yetter
Time: Thursday, August 16th at 1:00 pm CDT
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 this free webinar.
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?
