We were recently blessed to have Dale Stephenson from Crossway Baptist come to speak to a bunch of Pastors and leaders from the Manly area.
In the first session Dale speaks about structuring churches around the key steps of discipleship such as conversion, baptism, church membership, serving, mission trips, bible study groups and so on. By shifting from counting just attendance and giving, the church can move to encouraging people forward in their journey of following Christ.
In the second session, Dale talks about fostering a disciple making culture within the church. The goal is to mobilise the whole church in the disciple making process.
