Modern Disciple

A couple of years ago I met a team from Long Hollow Baptist Church. I picked up a copy Rediscovering Discipleship: Making Jesus’ Final Words Our First Work by their lead pastor, Robby Gallaty, and Ed Stetzer. Robby emphasizes the value of adding a “D Group” to the local church’s disciple-making model. This group is a gender-specific group of about 3 that includes more accountability and intentionality. In Rediscovering Discipleship he relates this model to the disciple-making the New Testament and of John Welsey.

Last weekend I was in Nashville and had the opportunity to worship at Long Hollow. Pastor Robby was concluding a series on the basics of this disciple-making path–“Modern Disciple.” The messages include:

  • You Need the Church and the Church Needs You (1 Cor. 12:12-19)
  • Find Community (Acts 2:41-47)
  • Making Jesus’ Last Words Our First Work (Matt. 28:16-20)
  • Every Member is a Minister (Eph. 4:11-14)
