THE DE-PROGRAMMING DISCIPLESHIP CONFERENCE was attended by 5 members of our leadership team this weekend. We were very blessed by pastors from our Mission District and Dr. Gemechis Bubba who shared their visions for discipleship. One of the things we came away with that will enrich our faith walk was the 6 Marks of Discipleship:

Pray daily;

Worship weekly;

Read the Bible;

Serve at and beyond your local congregation;

Be in relationship to encourage spiritual growth in others; and

Give of your time, talent and treasure.
