[June 11, 2017] We will consider the Tumbler model of discipleship that Jesus left us and consider some of its advantages over one off’s. Discernment, Bible study and fellowship (one of the pillars of the Asian American church) are primary examples of Tumbler discipleship. At the same time, we will look at developing the individual through mentoring and spiritual direction. The goal of the webinar is to provide some practical tools for growing disciples and core values of discipleship, such as love, equity, community, grace, mission and hope.
