January workshops too!

November 10, 2011

We’ve had an overwhelming response to our December workshop on discipleship and mission (see description of the workshop below). It’s not full quite yet, but it’s definitely filling up. It’s December 13-15 at the beach in Pawleys Island, SC (it’s only $99) and you can register here.

However, because of the response we’ve added another set of dates in January…January 10-12. Same exact workshop, different dates. You can register for that workshop by clicking here.

And…we’ll see how it goes, but there is a VERY good chance we’ll be doing a workshop in DENVER, COLORADO the third week of January (will know soon enough!).

More and more, people are realizing we are in the midst of a discipleship crisis in the United States which is largely responsible for the state of the American church. At the same time, there is a wave of excitement about the current missional movement that has been bubbling up in the last 10-15 years that many people are hoping will stop the bleeding. The fundamental issue, however, is that unless we are able to disciple people well like Jesus did, any missional movement is unsustainable.

Our general experience is that people are quite intrigued to hear how we’ve used things like Huddles (a discipleship vehicle) and Missional Communities (a missional vehicle) to see discipleship and mission come alive in their church communities, looking more and more like the churches we see in the New Testament. This workshop is a time to look at some of the things we’ve learned in the past 30 years, dealing with post-Christian contexts where as little as 1% of people attend church. It’ll have teaching, discussion, breakout time with your team, a chance to actually experience Huddles and Missional Communities, worship and even time at the beach. We are intentionally capping the attendance for the workshop at 200 so you have a large amount of access to 3DM’s team and whatever expertise/experience we bring to the table.

    If the Denver January workshop comes together, I will definitely plan to be there, and would be glad to help.

    We started a Missional Community the beginning of June this year and have seen the hand of the Lord moving among the people there. We meet every week on Saturday night. Last week we had people voluntarily give their testimony to what has happened in their lives since our community began meeting, one couple talked aobut how their marriage had been saved, one young woman told us that what she had been given through our gathering had kept her from taking her own life. Others shared how the pain of the death of a loved one had been healed and damaged relationships restored. God has so much more for His people if we will only open ourselves up to His use. Our group has ahd over 50 people attend and we regularly have between 20 and 30 attendees. We have no special gifts, but the Holy Spirit has been released to do His work among us. Our understanding of what God means in Matthew’s Great Commission has been molded by our involvement with 3dm. A “Disciple” is a learner. God has called us to stir up the curiousity of people and encourage them to seek to fill the God sized hole in each of us. If we get them to seek, scripture assures us, they will find! n We are seeing it happen in our midst. Praise God!
