Intensive Training Track I: Incarnational Missional Disciple-Making: Making Disciples Personally Through Triads/Quads (10:00am)

We have set aside a time for intensive exposure to the principles, processes and practices of effective disciple-making in the 21st Century. While a few will be attracted to our worship services and programs, the vast majority of those we are called to reach will only come to Christ and a deeper walk with Him if we give them the kind of personal attention that Jesus gave to His disciples. Dean Scott Pedersen+ and Fr. James Linton are practitioners of this approach and have much to share with all of us about how to make disciples effectively. If your congregation has plateaued, is in decline or has not witnessed adult conversion in the past year or two, you and the people you lead will be strengthened by this time with these leaders. This training is designed for those involved in adult disciple-making.
 
Intensive Training Track II: Missional Community Formation & Disciple-making Through Oikos and Deeply Rooted (10:00am)
Our friends and family of Holy Spirit Anglican in San Diego have begun a process of forming missional groupings that bridge relationships between the church and the wider community. Fr. Brian Hughes has led his church in the formation of Oikos (household groups) which serve as environments not only for fellowship but for Gospel sharing with Christian and non-Christian alike. Holy Spirit Anglican has benefited from the expertise of Gabby Manriquez who is making disciples through the Deeply Rooted process. If your groups are inwardly focused or lack skills in reaching for unchurched people, I commend this training opportunity to you with Fr. Brian and Gabby. The training is designed for those interested in the formation of small groups and local mission activities.
