How do we make disciple-making, not A ministry of the church, but THE ministry of the church? -Dhati Lewis
It’s easy to say every church should be about sending missionaries and reproducing churches; but HOW? Creating systems and practices takes intentionality and it’s always best to learn from those that have gone before us. In this podcast from Exponential West 2016, Ed Stetzer and Dhati Lewis, who have not only planted churches but also lead those churches to plant churches, will share some of those best practices and systems to help you do the same.
Join Dhati Lewis & Ed Stetzer at Exponential East 2017, where they will lead workshops on church planting and multiplication. Ed Stetzer will also keynote in one of the main stage sessions.
