Title: Discipleship as Gravity
Talk in a Sentence: Making discipleship the gravity of your church community at whatever level one enters it.
Talk in a Paragraph: What if we could make discipleship as normal in our church as the air we breath? Often times discipleship is allocated to a compartment of a church. Some of the times there are specific certified people that you go to for discipleship. But what if we made discipleship the most ordinary thing possible. Could we shape our community in such a way that when a person gets involved that they can’t help but find themselves living in the way of Jesus?
