Event description


Make Disciples of Jesus

A national forum to help you grow as a disciple maker

November 9-10, 2017

Discipleship·org helps disciple makers become more effective.

Our 2017 National Disciple Making Forum will teach you how to be a disciple maker in any aspect of life—from church leadership, to parenting, to working in children’s, men’s, and women’s ministries—even to working with those who have deep rooted addictions.

Come as an individual or with your team (senior pastor, key staff, small group leaders, and elders)

Enjoy 3 main sessions as a team, but split up your team members between the 13 tracks, according to their needs (each track will have 5 breakout sessions). That’s a total of 65 track sessions to choose from!

Email gearyt@discipleship.org for "buy 5 and get 5 free" registration savings (your church or organization only, please).
