Are we making disciples here?

As church leaders, we can be so busy worrying about the ABCs (attendance, buildings, and cash) that we lose sight of our main purpose: making disciples of Jesus. If that sounds familiar and you’d like to reinvigorate your disciplemaking ministry, this day is for you and your team. Discover what LICC has learnt about how to create a whole-life disciplemaking culture, and use our major new resource, Vital Signs, to put that wisdom into practice in your particular church.

‘Whole-life disciplemaking’ means equipping Christians to join in with what God’s doing in every part of their lives – at work, at home, in hobbies, pubs, clubs, and beyond. Because his mission goes far beyond our church-organised programmes, into the whole world. And so do our people. Vital Signs identifies 20 key ways you can put that kind of discipleship at the heart of your church culture.

The day will be led by LICC’s Ken Benjamin, former President of Baptists Together and author of the Vital Signs book, and Steve Rouse, pastor at Balham Baptist Church. Between them, they have decades of experience of both leading whole-life disciplemaking churches and equipping leaders to do the same.

Designed for anyone in any kind of church leadership, this day will be filled with practical advice, biblical insights, and opportunities to discuss with peers from other churches. It’s the perfect way to get equipped and inspired for whole-life ministry. Together, we will:

  • Explore the biblical vision for whole-life disciplemaking
  • Share principles and processes to make whole-life discipleship possible
  • Introduce the 20 vital signs as a practical way to embed whole-life discipleship
  • Show you how to make the most of the Vital Signs resources in your own context

If you’ve already completed the Vital Signs assessment tool with your team, this is the perfect opportunity to work out how to make the most of your results. If you’ve just started thinking about how you can develop a disciplemaking culture, then you’ll gain vision and next steps your church can take.
