DiscipleShift: Five Steps That Help Your Church to Make Disciples Who Make Disciples

Over the last thirty years, many influential church leaders and church planters in America have adopted various models for reaching unchurched people. An “attractional” model will seek to attract people to a local church. Younger leaders may advocate a more “missional” approach, in which believers live and work among unchurched people and intentionally seek to serve like Christ. While each of these approaches have merit, something is still missing, something even more fundamental to the mission of the church: discipleship.

Making disciples―helping people to trust and follow Jesus―is the church’s God-given mandate. Devoted disciples attract people outside the church because of the change others see in their Christ-like lives. And discipleship empowers Christians to be more like Christ as they intentionally develop relationship with non-believers.

DiscipleShift walks you through five key “shifts” that churches must make to refocus on the biblical mission of discipleship. These intentional changes will attract the world and empower your church members to be salt and light in their communities.

FOUNDATIONS Seminar Overview
Jesus built a Disciple-Making ministry in His 3 1⁄2 years that are recorded in the Gospels. During the first 18-21 months of Jesus’ ministry, He laid an important FOUNDATION that would allow disciples to be made and multiply. A careful study reveals six foundational priorities that became the building blocks for Jesus’ Disciple-Making ministry. As ministry leaders and churches implement these six foundational priorities, they will be on their way to building a healthy disciple-making ministry like Jesus!

During the Foundations seminar, we will explain and help implement Jesus’ foundational non-negotaialbe priorities which remain our's today in the 21st Century:
• Holy Spirit Dependence
• Prayerful Guidance
• Obedient Living
• Word-centered
• Exalting the Father
• Relationships of Love and Integrity

The seminar will take an extensive Scriptural look at each of these priorities, highlighting for each the:
• Pattern of Jesus
• Principles of Jesus
• Practices of Jesus
The seminar is interactive and will include information, instruction, and implementation, lending itself to be very practical for ministry leaders to bring their ministry team. Leaders and teams are given opportunities to plan and set goals for implementing the priorities of Jesus in their own life and in their ministry. A manual/book will be given to each person who attends. And is included in the seminar fee.

4 Chair Discipling: Growing a Movement of Disciple-Makers

Dann Spader is disciple-maker who has spent years exploring what it means to take someone from seeker to making disciples themselves. Over 750,000 people in 80 countries have been trained to make disciples through organizations he has led. Through studying the life of Christ and His disciple-making methods, Dann developed 4 Chair Discipling, a simple picture for others to follow. Jesus' last words here on earth had a few very specific instructions... We are to "Go... and Make Disciples... Baptize... and Teach."

But what does that mean for us today? Well, it's not easy. But it is simple. Teacher and leader Dann Spader explains disciple-making as a process of moving people through four chairs, from someone seeking to know more about Christ to someone who makes disciples themselves.

Chair 1: Come and See (John 1:39)
Chair 2: Follow Me (John 1:43)
Chair 3: Become a Fisher of Men (Matthew 4:19)
Chair 4: Go and Bear Fruit (John 15:16)

In the process of His four year ministry, Jesus realized that different people are at different stages of growth and development, and He works to challenge each of them to the next level. In 4 Chair Discipling you'll get a clear and simple picture of how to follow in Jesus' footsteps and do the same thing.
