Developing Disciples

Discipleshift Retreats:

Discipleshift is an intentional model of developing disciples in the local church.  This practical tool empowers lay people to lead transformational small groups where people grow in their faith.  Discipleshift can be implemented in every size church and can make a difference in developing passionate, spiritual disciples. 

Discipleshift begins with a two-day immersion retreat and then is followed up by a twelve week course online

Discipleshift retreats for 2020 are TBA.
