For many followers of Christ, we want to reach out to our own communities or to an unreached people in our city. We want to share good news and to gather people together to engage God’s word. For most people, we need just a little more training to equip us to step forward. We might need a little coaching to help us get through some of the common challenges that can become a barrier if we were completely on our own.
Global City Mission is prepared to be your guide. Participating in a Disciple-Maker Cohort, you will receive training & live coaching in relational evangelism, starting a new group, and facilitating inductive bible discussions. We recognize that the best way to learn is by doing, and doing is most practical when there are guides to help us along the way.
Disciple-Maker Cohorts include 7 sessions each lasting up to 90 minutes. You can participate from any location as long as you can access Zoom. Training modules include: Foundations for healthy evangelism & starting spiritual conversations, Finding relational inroads that work for you, Sharing stories in everyday conversations, Building on your spiritual conversations, Identifying persons of peace, Facilitating discovery bible discussions, and Moving forward & multiplying.
