You care about discipling and empowering other disciples. I know you do. Developing passionate followers of Jesus, multiplying and equipping leaders, empowering other generations, it's stuff everyone who cares about the church cares about.

What if?

  • You could disciple more people with less effort?
  • Your approach could work any time, any place, with anyone?
  • You could unleash a disciple-making flood in the church you serve?

Contagious Discipleship will show you how. It is not a simplistic formula, but more like an art that is learned in minutes and refined for a lifetime. This training workshop is hands-on and highly experiential. Contagious Discipleship is a discovery-based process built on the action-reflection principles of learning theory.

What if we could disciple people the way we learn? The most important lessons in life come by trial and error. You see the same pattern in the life of Jesus. He discipled His followers along the way, in the trenches of life.



  • Hands-on experience with every aspect of the process
  • Confidence anchored in the example of Jesus
  • Proficiency in the Courageous Discipleship process
  • Powerful questions that frame the reflection process
  • Pathway to bridge the gap between generations
  • Reproducibility with leaders in any ministry or life context
  • Capacity to create a disciple-making culture in the church
  • Ability to apply this process to other settings: classroom environments, groups, mentoring relationships, parenting, developing leaders, even managing volunteers

A paradox of church life is that when we focus on building a church we get an organization, even an institution. When we focus on making and developing disciples we end up with a dynamic church.
