6-7pm Taco Dinner Served
7-8pm Laying Gospel Foundations
8-9pm Living in Light of God’s Story

We’ll begin the weekend with a Friday night teaching block, exploring the foundational Gospel paradigm from which we disciple. We’ll explore core gospel concepts including sin, justification and sanctification (Laying Gospel Foundations), and then move to looking at how the storyline of creation, fall and redemption informs and interacts with the everyday struggles of those we are discipling (God’s Story).


8-9am Continental Breakfast Served
9-10am Welcome + Opening Case Study
10-10:45am Dual Perspective Discipling
10:45-11am Break
11-12pm Case Study Discussion + Coming Alongside Pt. 1
12-1PM Lunch Served

Saturday morning will open with an interactive Case Study as participants workshop a discipling scenario in small groups. We’ll then present the model of Dual-Perspective Discipling, and return to debrief the case study in light of this model. The second part of the morning will focus on practical discipling skills, flowing out of the posture of Coming Alongside.

1-2pm Coming Alongside Pt. 2 + Interactive Group Work
2-2:30pm Discipling Triads
2:30-2:45pm Break
2:45-3:15pm Brainstorming Session in Small Groups
3:15-4pm Discipling Q&A

In the afternoon, through training and interactive engagement, we will continue to unpack what it means to come alongside those we disciple as we cover skills like Active Listening, the art of crafting Disruptive Questions that reach the heart level, and Sharing From Your Own Life. We’ll end the weekend with a Brainstorming Session, as we seek to apply the training in various ministry contexts. Participants will break into small groups, based on their various ministries (or churches), to discuss takeaways and immediate application points from the training. We’ll end with a Discipling Q&A Session.
