Discipleship Huddles Launching

Jesus is sending all of his followers, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations and people groups (Matthew 28:18-20). Many in the church however see this “sending out” to be for trained missionaries and full-time workers only. We believe the Bible is clear. Disciple making is for all Christians. And yet we must be equipped as Jesus’ disciples before we can reproduce by making disciples. Please join us in one of our Discipleship Gospel micro groups (3-4 men) that are launching throughout the Fall in various locations around Greater Pittsburgh. See the list below. Small groups of 3-4 just like Jesus’ inner circle of disciples has been proven to be the optimal group size for transformational growth. Trust and an increasing transparency aided by the Holy Spirit’s presence help to build strong friendships and a brotherhood that lasts a lifetime.

Many of our Disciple Makers (not all) will be utilizing The Discipleship Gospel Workbook which focuses on the Gospel of Mark through the lens of Jesus message and mission of disciple making. You will be trained how to share your faith and equipped to reproduce as a disciple maker. 16 lessons in 16 weeks; one chapter of Mark each week is covered.

“The Discipleship Gospel” by Bill Hull and Ben Sobels is a companion book to the workbook which is recommended to be read during your 16 week journey.  Workbooks ($5) and books ($12) will be provided. 

Contact us right away as some micro groups are already launching!

Below is our Fall Huddle List with contact information of our disciple makers and their area of the city. Contact them for huddle locations and to get on their group list. There are 7 huddles listed below but we have 5 additional huddles currently meeting that are not open to the public. They are meeting at Renewal, Inc. (DOC Work Release), Washington County Jail and two other  triad groups previously launched. Please pray for our disciple makers so that 4th soil hearts (Sower & The Seed) will “hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.” Mark 4:20
