Disciple Making and Evangelism

"Save the Lost, Pastor the Saved, Equip the Pastored, Send the Equipped"

But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.   (Mark 4:20)

Half of all U.S. churchgoers (51%) say they are unfamiliar with the term "Great Commission." - Barna Group

Disciple Making Teams / Missional Communities

What are they?  Ordinary people, teaming together on mission, with extraordinary power preaching, praying, giving and suffering for the spread of the gospel.  

This is the picture of the early church that we see on the pages of the New Testament.  A small band of twelve men responded to a life-changing invitation:  "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men" (Matthew 4:19)

**Next Disciple Making teams forming late August for week of September 9th start.  Orientation session on August 26th and August 29th.

***Be on mission all year long with others in your neighborhood/community.  Geographically based Missional Communities forming in August, 2018.  Prototype community will begin August 13th, in the Riverchase geographic area, and operate thru December 31st.  Additional communities will begin operating January , 2019.

Contact Pastor Chris (205-988-5004) to join a disciple making group or missional community.

Born to Multiply

"The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."  Some people attribute this quotation to Mark Twain.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  And God blessed them.  And God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth..." (Genesis 1:27-28)
