Membership to Discipleship Workshop

Dr. E. Stanley Ott Returns to the Anderson District

Saturday, March 22 from 9:00am-3:00pm
Pendleton United Methodist Church

Simply doing what we’ve always done in congregational life is proving less effective in growing followers of Jesus. It is time to find ways to shift from merely imparting information to inspiring life transformation, from merely making members to making disciples.

Come and learn effective patterns for the fruitful growing of three-dimensional disciples – those who love and serve their Lord, who love and serve one another, and who love and serve their communities.

E. Stanley Ott, Ph.D., President of the Vital Churches Institute, has worked with hundreds of congregations in developing disciple-growing systems and will share a number of concepts designed to enhance your personal and your congregation’s disciple-growing ministries.

Topics will include:

  • The state of growing disciples in our churches today.
  • The motivations that move our hearts to grow disciples.
  • The congregational culture and strategies for making disciples.
  • Steps by which individuals may grow disciples among the people in their lives.
  • A variety of disciple-making systems that can be used by congregations.

This seminar will encourage you in your own growth in discipleship and it will assist pastors and church leaders who understand the challenges of growing disciples today in leading many others in the way of the disciple.
