Apprenticing in the Ways of Jesus:

Creating a Disciple-Making Culture for Your Church and Community

Coming to a region near you – Spring 2019

A one-day conference for pastors, elders, ministry leaders and other spiritual influencers.
Registration is open to everyone.

Go and make disciples of all nations — Matt 28:19


When Dallas Willard was invited to work with churches, he would often begin by asking, “Do you have a plan for discipleship and is it working?”  Most of the time we can’t answer the first question, so the second is irrelevant.

The absence of disciple-making in our churches could be rooted in fear of offending others, lack of effective practices, competing priorities, personal inadequacy or simple misunderstanding.

Discipleship in the New Testament is not just intellectual or cognitive but a matter of everyday lifestyle.  It isn’t about attending church or studying a book but rather learning to live the way of Jesus in our homes, neighbourhoods and places of work.  Discipleship must go beyond personal spiritual self-improvement to invest in others who will also go out and make disciples.

VMC is hosting a one-day conference in several regions across Canada to help leaders think critically about how their congregations might better respond to the mandate Jesus gave to his Church.
