“You can’t take the teachings of Jesus and separate them from the methods of Jesus and get the results of Jesus.” – Jim Putman

While discipleship should be at the core of every church, it won’t become the core by accident. In this video, Jim Putman explains why discipleship should be at the core of every church plant and how to make disciples that make disciples as your church takes off.

Key Highlights:

  • Understanding what a disciple is
  • Building relationships before church planting
  • Multiplying disciples who make disciples through relationship

Don’t miss Exponential East 2017, where multiple workshop tracks will focus on discipleship.
