Spiritual Formation: A way of life for ALL small group members
A few weeks ago, I was invited to do a weekend of consulting and training in an energetic, soul-winning church in the Northeast part of the country. This church has implemented a discipleship pathway (what some call spiritual formation) and are enjoying the results of helping new believers become fully-devoted followers of Christ. Their main objectives for bringing me to the church were: to increase participation in discipleship; help them launch new groups that were highly missional and holistic; and move the staff and congregation deeper into a transition away from building-centric programs to relational ministry.
[In this issue of Fresh Insight, I’ll address the first issue of increasing participation in discipleship and leave the others for future editions in the months to follow.]
