2019 DISCIPLE-MAKING WORKSHOP
@ The Mission Church in Des Moines, IA
The following content was presented live at The Mission Church in Des Moines, IA over a period of four weeks. Each week includes a video of the session, a link to the PowerPoint slides in PDF form, and any additional links or downloads related that the training during that week. If you’d like Brett to lead a workshop at your church, you can contact him here.
Brett introduced the “411” which is a training tool for Christians to train other Christians. The 411 answers four questions in one hour on one sheet of paper. The 411 answers the following the questions: 1) Why should we make disciples? 2) Who should I reach? 3) What do I say? 4) When do I start? Participants not only learned the tool but were immediately required to practice the tool and train/teach someone else during the workshop that evening.
The primary objective of this session was to learn how to turn everyday conversations into spiritual conversations, how to find the right person to disciple, and how to begin discipling someone with simple and reproducible discipleship tools. Brett introduced two simple methods of having conversations and asking good questions that lead to spiritual conversations (S.P.E.A.K. method + 3 Simple Questions about Beliefs).
For knowing who is ready to be discipled, Brett introduced the “F.A.T.” filter. Simply put, you should be looking for people who are Faithful, Available, and Teachable.
In this session, Brett introduces a few more simple and reproducible discipleship tools that help disciples equip other disciples to obey Jesus. Brett introduced the Commands of Christ, Disciple-Making Essentials bookmark, Bible Study Essentials Worksheet + bookmark, and the Christian Growth Assessment.
