Disciple! is an intensive immersion into the Story of God, and how He relates to humans.  Using the technique of storytelling, participants experience the grand sweeping drama from creation to the ascension of Jesus, and beyond, to our current day continuation of the story.  The themes of God’s love, loss of trust and the lost birthright of humanity, and redemption back into the Kingdom of Heaven are woven throughout the tapestry of the Story.

Pastor Jeff Garner discusses life around a meal.

To be a disciple of Jesus we must understand where he came from, who He is, and how he lived.  Story forming as a communication medium plunges the participant directly into the events, engages the emotions and connects the imagination to the material being presented as no other method can.  It is this emotional connectivity that cements the reality of a God who loves us, cares deeply about us and wants to walk with us in the cool of the day.  It makes us realize that every fallen human deserves the opportunity to become a disciple of Jesus Christ.   CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

DISCIPLE is a 3 day immersion into the story of God and how our life deals with it. In the West, we have assumed that discipleship is a curriculum, a course we take with a lecturer in a classroom. That is not what this is. We are recovering the notion that disciples are formed through a community that eats together, celebrates with each other, meets each other’s needs and intentionally works to paint pictures of heaven on earth. What we mean by this is that as disciples of Jesus our objective and goal is not another program or event, but to see the Gospel so deeply embedded into our hearts that the everyday rhythms of ordinary life (working, eating, celebrating) are infused with Gospel intentionality.

DISCIPLE is a radical immersion into the life and community of disciples who have listened to the Gospel so deeply that their sense of mission is clear and fast, and their life in community is real and open.

The first two days we will listen and discuss God’s Story as we seek to hear the truth so deeply that it affects the way we live and do life. The last day we will have discussions centered around disciple making by learning how – to live the Gospel, how to speak the Gospel, how to live in community, how to live with Gospel intentionality.

IMG_7336This apprenticeship has limited seating. We are intentionally seeking a smaller and more intimate group of participants.  Since there is a lot of dialog along with the story development as we re-train our concept of being Jesus” Disciples, we only have space for 40 people. This is not a seminar or conference, its an intensive immersion into the art and culture of making disciples.

The content comes from many years of research on disciple making in the tradition of the Apostle John, the Beloved Disciple. We want to emphasis that we will be immersed 8-10 hours a day in the Story and Scripture. Your brain and heart will be packed to overflowing because this isn’t a conference, it’s an apprenticeship. It is similar to a residency at a seminary. For that reason we ask that you be available from the first session to the last.

What is the schedule like?
