Sundays | 5:00-6:30pm

May 15, May 22, June 5, June 12

Childcare will be provided (if needed).

We all know the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 – “Go and make disciples.”  How are we as a church doing with that task? And how exactly do we make disciples? 

 

In this class, we will learn what disciple making is, examine how Jesus did it, and learn how each of us can personally make disciples in the places God has put us in today. 

This class will be a mixture of lecture, interactive exercises, short videos, personal stories, and object lessons.  We want this to be a fun learning environment where we not only learn, but the information "sticks" and you walk away with tangible steps as examples of how you can make disciples in your own life situation.

Sessions:

  • May 15     Session 1 – Be Intentional.

  • May 22     Session 2 – Invest Time. Earn Trust.

  • June 5      Session 3 – Create Reproducers.

  • June 12    Session 4 – Nuts & Bolts

Optional supplemental reading:

The Master Plan of Evangelism by Dr. Robert E. Coleman

We will not be going through this book chapter by chapter, however this book has some helpful concepts that explain Jesus' model of making disciples.

You can order a book here  or you can purchase one through MVBC for $5.


"Success in ministry is not found in building programs but in building disciples—disciples who love God with all of their heart, soul, strength, and mind.  Christ is the goal, not better or more impressive ministries. He is what we want.”
