Roll out a discipleship culture by training your "first wave" of mentors. Here's how to do it.

Talking Points:

  • Choose the most appropriate Start Page. Use your ministries Partner Page if you have one. 
  • Bring them through Topics 10-12 in “The Pursuit”. These are the core training topics that they will eventually use when they make disciples. 
  • Now let them practice on you with Topics 1-9. This lets them see how the resources work and it lets you give them feedback.
  • Cover additional training topics as needed, and then empower them to make disciples in the same way you discipled them.
