Disciple-Making Conference

Share your life. Speak the gospel.
February 29, 2016
Lawndale Baptist Church
Greensboro, NC

"So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us." - 1 Thessalonians 2:8

Disciple-making is both gospel-centered and people-focused. Sharing the gospel also means sharing something else — our very lives. As we share the gospel through our relationships, we let others know we care about them, we’re concerned for them and we’re committed to them.  Join us for a day of training and equipping in how to invest your life in the lives of others for the sake of the gospel.


Registration is required, but the conference is free to attend. The cost for lunch is $7 per meal and requires registration.
