Taught monthly By Pastor Jim Meek of Trinity Baptist Church


FEBRUARY 15-16, 2010 
On Target

Marriott South Bay, Torrance, California


Jesus Christ left us with the Great Commission to make disciples. As a pastor, staff member or lay leader it is easy to get caught up in meetings, activities and even ministries that do not directly contribute to the making of disciples.

Do you ever wonder if you and your church are truly making disciples? Do you have a working definition of a disciple? Do you have an identified disciple-making process that your church's ministries, activities and resources support?

This conference is filled with ministers who have a clear definition of what a disciple is, have a simple disciple-making process, make regular evaluations of the disciples and the process and make wise adjustments to their ministries. These leaders understand what God is blessing in their ministries and are ready to share it with you.
