This online course introduces people to Gospel Discipleship, a means of understanding our unique paths of discipleship as individuals and churches through the lenses of the four gospels. Through a brief assessment, people determine if they are Markan (Holy Spirit driven), Matthean (Action oriented), Lukan (Relationship centered) or Johannine (Mentor-Apprentice nurtured) disciples, and then learn not only how to live into their discipleship but how to work better alongside other types in ministry. Students also learn how to bring this process to their church to help the church fully live into their unique identity. Participants need to take the free, online assessment found at www.ministrymatters.com/gospeldiscipleship
Although this is an advanced Lay Servant Ministries course, this course is open to all as a post-Laity Summit offering.
