First focus team on discipleship – The PIER Church

The PIER Church  Report – Winter 2018

This past fall we began and completed our first focus team on discipleship. We met weekly every Wednesday, teaching and learning together about what it means to be a disciple, and how we are called to disciple as Jesus did. We ended our time together at the end of October with a day retreat, where everyone shared their testimony – many for the first time. It was a time of open hearts, encouragement and good feedback.

We ended with testimonies, because we expect them to be able to articulate the glory of God in their lives, and set the level of intimacy and openness in their discipleship relationships. Over the holidays they are to begin talking with those within the church God has called them to disciple.

Together we prayed for revival, together we struggle and encourage each other, and together we strive fulfill the great commission as a body of believers.

I am excited to see what God will do through this small focus team in the coming year!
