    Discipleship that Rests on the Gospel

    Discipleship that Rests on the Gospel

    When someone believes the gospel of grace, nothing is the same. The Holy Spirit teaches you, and you are transformed. You face all things with new eyes and new hearts. Yet as you carry on in life it is easy to forget the implications of the gospel that has changed you. You need to remember the gospel and how it affects everything you face. And that is exactly what the people you disciple need as well. To powerfully disciple others, we must root what we teach them in the gospel, because each person needs Jesus’ grace to apply to her situation. Taught by Taylor Turkington at Verity Conference 2015.

    Power, Purpose, and Practicality of Bible Study

    Power, Purpose, and Practicality of Bible Study

    Bible studies take work-organizing, facilitating, praying. Sometimes it’s sweat and tears poured out for the people who attend. And if we don’t have a big vision for what Bible studies do, we can become worn out and ready to be done. Moreover, if we do this poorly, people can walk away with the idea that not only are we unintelligible and irrelevant, but God is as well.  But the reality is that Bible studies are important. They are transformative. They are the places where God’s people use their gifts, engage with each other, and meet with God Himself. So, let’s do this. (Read in Home Depot “let’s do this” voice.) Let’s talk about why we gather. Let’s talk about the doctrine that motivates our studies. Let’s talk about the nitty gritty of how we do it and do it well. Let’s remember the significance of Bible studies, so we are encouraged to continue in this worthy task. Taught by Taylor Turkington at Verity Forum 2016. Visit our website for the handout.

    What is Greatness in the Kingdom?

    What is Greatness in the Kingdom?

    Who is considered great in our society? How is greatness identified? In the kingdom of God greatness looks differently than in the world. Jesus teaches us in Luke 22:24-27 that true greatness looks like service. The greats are those who bend down and lower themselves, for true leaders look like Jesus. Teaching by Taylor Turkington at Verity Forum 2016.

    Discipleship is Intentional Directed Relationship

    Discipleship is Intentional Directed Relationship

    Jesus says, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men." (Matthew 4:19) Jesus modeled a relational discipleship process that had a purpose, a destination, and a goal! He challenges his disciples to do the same, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-10). Everything? Really!?! How do we teach those we are discipling to grow up in their faith and in turn disciple others. In this workshop we will build a discipleship framework that can be a guiding tool in your discipleship of others at every stage of development. Taught by Shana Powell at Verity Forum 2016.
