Discipleship begins with Relationship  

Enroll in a three-session video teaching series designed to communicate the basic principles behind the See All The People movement.  
Class opens March 4 and it's free.
This three-session video teaching series, featuring Rev. Junius B. Dotson and Rev. Jacob Armstrong as your instructors, aims to communicate the basic principles behind See All The People, a movement to help us understand what discipleship and evangelism mean in the 21st century.
This video teaching series includes three sessions, as well as discussion for each session. They will talk about whose job it is to make disciples, how to stop fixing churches, and how discipleship begins with relationship. If you have a voice inside of you that wants to help create a new DNA in your congregation, welcome, and let’s get started.  

See All the People 

For too long, The United Methodist Church has searched for a quick fix to help guide our discipleship efforts. We have been busy sending postcards, producing PowerPoint presentations and studying community demographics. While efforts like those may be important, they alone do not lead to disciple-making. The most essential step for making disciples of Jesus Christ is to immerse ourselves in the lives of the people who are right outside our doors, acknowledging that God calls us to have meaningful relationships in authentic, organic and consistent ways.

At the center of Spiritual Leadership Development is discipleship development. It is an expectation that every person in a position of leadership are rooted in spiritual disciplines and on an ongoing journey toward maturing as a disciple.  Each local faith community must start with defining what discipleship means in their context before they then can create a process and plan for developing disciples along the journey from living a life far from God to one centered in Christ.
