Getting students to grow closer to God is messy. There’s no equation for it. No “A+B=C.” It’s a process, sure. But it’s sure not a linear one. Spiritual formation is WAY more organic, much like a recipe. As youth leaders, our goal is to see the essential ingredients of disciple-making combine together to create environments where faith thrives. This interactive workshop will help you both define the essential elements of discipleship and consider how to implement them in your specific context.
