Building a Strong Discipleship Model
What do Paul and Barnabas have in common with church leaders today? They had had differing views about how to be on mission with God and how to do discipleship. Mac Brunson, pastor of First Baptist Jacksonville, FL uses them as an example to help us understand that the work of discipleship isn’t always as clear as everyone thinks it should be. This is why identifying and building a strong discipleship model for your church context is so important.
Pastor Brunson described the First Baptist Jacksonville discipleship model at the 2017 BACE conference in New Orleans. He explained how a variety of views regarding the practice of discipleship were brought together so that they could develop a common model that helps them focus, in unity, on the work of making disciples.
