Discovery Bible Study Training Day

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. Walk-in registrations will be accepted.
