Greg Ogden Discipleship Workshop May 8-9

Posted in better disciples at 10:11 PM by alexlozada

Greg Ogden, author of Transforming Discipleship as well as several other books that are MCC staff favorites, will lead the Mt Zion Discipleship Workshop Friday evening May 8 – Saturday afternoon May 9, hosted by Mt Zion United Methodist Church (Bel Air).  From my reading Transforming Discipleship: Making Disciples a Few at a Time, I appreciated his emphasis on “Take a long term view. Slow down. Do it right.”  In a church blessed with Yay God! numerical growth (250 baptisms last Sunday), I’m often pulled in the opposite direction of “we need lots of new programs right now!” instead of nurtuing fewer, more time-intensive, and ultimately more better-disciple-making relationships.

For the Mt Zion information sheet (including detailed schedule) check this link: Ogden_Bulletin_Insert.  Registration is FREE but the hosts are asking people to please register by Monday May 4.  Email the Mt Zion church office or the event coordinators, or call the church office 410-836-7444.

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in being a discipler, especially MCC current and potential small group leader and coaches.  Another benefit for this workshop will be connecting with discipleship-focused servant-leaders at other Harford County congregations.  I’ll miss Friday evening attending the third anniversary of MCC’s Celebrate Recovery ministry, but I’ll see you Saturday!
