How do we follow Jesus' command to, "Go and make disciples of all nations..."? The Diocese of
Albany is presenting a Discovery Bible Study Workshop on October 22nd at
Christ the King Spiritual Life Center
to help us figure that out. Discovery Bible Studies are like no other small group you have
experienced. They originated in third-world predominantly Muslim countries where they have
been bearing fruit and leading thousands to become disciples of Jesus. But they also work with
non-believers, including American non-believers, bringing them not only to faith in Jesus but also to
becoming teachers of other non-believers. This workshop will help you bear fruit and glorify God by
using the format of the Discovery Bible Study to help lead others to become disciples of Jesus.
The workshop will be led by Fr. Brewster Hastings and Mr. Fred Hall from CityNet Ministries, Inc., who
presented at the Diocesan Convention in June. Their support team will include other disciple-makers from
the Philadelphia region. Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Great Hall of Christ the King. (There
will be coffee!) The program itself will start at 9:30 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
The cost of the day is $20. Scholarships are available, up to 50% of the cost. Rooms are being offered at
a special rate for Friday night with Saturday breakfast included in the price for those coming from the
farther reaches of the Diocese or who would rather not drive in in the morning. Single occupancy is $80
per person and double occupancy is $45 per person.
