Your First Step on The Road to Authentic Discipleship

Your First Step on The Road to Authentic Discipleship

Do you have a heart to see authentic discipleship happening at your church?

Do you know how to get started?

Our church has that heart, but we didn’t know how to begin. That’s when we heard about the DiscipleShift1 experience. What an experience it turned out to be!
We gathered our senior pastor, key members of our staff and board to attend. Traveling together was valuable. We got to know each other better while on the road. It seems we always want relational time together but have trouble making it.

The theme of relationship continued throughout DiscipleShift1. There were a few large group sessions. However, the bulk of our time was spent together in small groups. Our conference hosts modeled for us what a relational environment looks like (a key component of relational discipleship). They also took the time to encourage open dialogue and healthy interpersonal relationships amongst our group. We learned that relationship wasn’t just something we could do when there was occasional time for it. Relationship is how Jesus led and key for leaders of His church today.

I expected a standard conference where information was downloaded to us by experts.

But what we received was something far more brilliant, an experience.

Being an Executive Pastor (wired for administration) I was frustrated at first with DiscipleShift1. I had come expecting step-by-step instruction on how to implement a discipleship program at our church. I expected a standard conference where information was downloaded to us by experts. But what we received was something far more brilliant...an experience.

The DiscipleShift1 staff cared enough to model discipleship for us. Seeing it firsthand gave our team a reference point. For the first time we were able to “get” what relational discipleship was all about because we actually experienced it.

We left without receiving the typical conference material, “10 Easy Steps to Discipleship at Your Church”. We left having learned that discipleship is a lifestyle and not a 10 step program. We left knowing enough to begin asking the right questions. We left having taken the first step on our journey to bring relational discipleship to our church.

I wholeheartedly recommend the DiscipleShift1 experience to Pastors who are serious about leading a disciple-making church. Don’t come for a conference. Come ready for an experience that will reverberate throughout your organization, and perhaps change it forever.
