Guest Speaker: Joel Zoborowski

“How did the message of the gospel saturate the entire ancient world in less than 30 years without cars, the Internet or smartphones? It spread from person to person as early Christians obeyed Jesus’ command to “go and make disciples.” These believ- ers followed the disciple-making method and model of Jesus, the Master Teacher. As they did, others came to know Him, not just about Him! And they in turn became Christians who discipled

others, multiplying a movement. (Sonlife.com)

Jesus' Disciple-Making Process

Jesus knew the people He encountered were at different stages of growth and development, and He intentionally challenged them to move the next level:










Sonlife’s disciple-making resources help you understand how to apply Jesus’ process to your own ministry, whether you’re a part-time volunteer doing one-on-one disciple-making, a youth pastor leading student groups, a bi-vocational church-planter growing a new ministry, or a full-time minister leading in an established church.
