Gospel-Centered Discipleship

Speaker: Jonathan Dodson
As a junk drawer word, discipleship can mean various things. What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus? Constantly formed by other discipling influences, how do we remain centered on the gospel of grace? As a people commissioned to “make disciples” how can effectively take spiritual responsibility for others, passing along what we have learned? Join us for an informative and engaging time as we consider gospel-centered discipleship.
  • What is a disciple and how are they “gospel-centered”?
  • How can we actively shape disciples in the gospel of grace?
  • What should the multiplication of disciples look like?
Childcare will be available for birth through kindergarten.

Healthy Relationships within the Family of God

Presenter: Caroline Smiley
In the family of God, friendship is often spoken of using the paradigm of “brothers and sisters” and even “mothers and fathers” (1 Timothy 5:1-3). This session provides practical tools rooted in biblical truths and concepts that inform how we consider and exist in friendship.

  • What is God’s design for friendship and how to handle friendships between men and women?
  • How does the “brother-sister” paradigm change our understanding of relationships, forgiveness, and conflict?
  • What relationships do I have and how can I move forward in wisdom?
Childcare will be available for birth through kindergarten.

Discipleship in Parenting

Presenters: Jeff and Jen Wilkin
God’s word stresses the importance of healthy relationships in the nuclear family, and within the family of God. During this session you will be encouraged and equipped as parents — in both the physical and spiritual sense — as we answer these questions:
  • How does the gospel inform the way we view our role as parents and how we shepherd our children?
  • How can I apply this call of discipleship in my life? What are practical examples of how this looks in others’ lives?
  • How does the family of God paradigm invite all of us (single, barren, etc.) to assume the role of spiritual parent for those around us?
Childcare will be available for birth through kindergarten.
