Presbyterians Organized in Nurture & Teaching (POINT) will gather on February 6, 2013, in Orlando, Florida, for Engaging Disciples, a unique opportunity to explore tools and techniques for nurturing disciples in a variety of contexts. The event includes breakfast, an opening session, and two back-to-back workshops. All team members, including new-to-POINT representatives, will experience every session.
The "Nurturing Disciples through Feasting on the Word" workshop will allow participants to explore the growing Feasting family of resources that now includes a daily devotion guide, worship planning tools, and the comprehensive, lectionary-based curriculum for an all-church discipleship ministry. David Maxwell, executive editor of Geneva Press, The Thoughtful Christian, and adult editor for Feasting on the Word Curriculum for Presbyterian Publishing Corporation, and Carol Wehrheim, general editor for Feasting on the Word Curriculum in partnership with CMP and PPC, will facilitate.
The "Engage" workshop will introduce POINT representatives to the newly revised Engage discipleship resources for existing and new worshipping communities. Engage, eventually three components, will guide individuals to consider: what happens when they follow Jesus, what it means to be accountable to a community of faith, what is the communities sphere of influence, and what is the evidence of growing in discipleship. Ray Jones, coordinator of evangelism, PC(USA), will faciltiate.
