2018 theme: Discipling Relationships

The National Disciple Making Forum is the convening of the Discipleship-first community. The tone of the three Main Sessions of the Forum is a celebration of this community coming together to see greater momentum for disciple making. The Forum is also a time of connection and equipping by and through our partners to pastors and everyday disciples. For 2018, we will highlight the critical nature of discipling relationships as a key element of Jesus’ methods. A unique emphasis this year will also be Shodankeh Johnson and his inspirational story of a disciple making movement in West Africa fueled by prayer and fasting.

Jim Putman and Shodankeh Johnson (Main session 1)

Jesus said He would build His church which we know will lead to freedom, justice, peace, and love. Yet, it is evident in our culture—and in our churches—people and communities are not flourishing. If we want to see a great movement of God in our generation, it will be through our humility as His people as we pray and love those around us in relationships that Jesus modeled.

Mandisa and DA Horton (Main session 2)

Jesus modeled and gave a clear command to love as he loved knowing the result that others would be drawn to the Father. His imperative to us is the same today; if we want to see His church continue to be built and for our communities to be transformed, it starts when we pursue discipling relationships.

Robby Gallaty and David Clayton (Main session 3)

Scripture is clear that God’s heart is pleased when we live as disciples who make disciples. God will build His church through us and we can see a great movement of God in our generation as we model our life in Jesus before others! No matter your season or situation, be strong and courageous, God wants to use you.
