Casting Our Nets into the Deep: Making Disciples of Jesus

ORE Opp for Leaders
YM Opp Adults

Jesus gave us a mission: Go and make disciples! Have you ever stopped to think about how you actually do that? Or what it is that makes someone a disciple in the first place? When you look at your ministry, how do you know if you actually ARE making disciples? We want to help you wrestle with these questions in a way that we believe can transform your ministry! 

Casting our Nets is a monthly series based on the book Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry Weddell. All Youth Ministers, Confirmation Coordinators, PCLs, Pastors/Priests, Parish Life Directors, Pastoral Associates and any parish ministry leaders are invited to join this free monthly experience. Don’t miss this opportunity to grow in your relationship with Jesus and transform your ministry. Gatherings will be once a month via Zoom from 10:00am – 12:00pm.

To prepare for our monthly sessions you will be asked to read certain chapters of the book Forming Intentional Disciples by Sherry Weddell. You can order a copy of the book on Amazon. In between sessions, you will be given a challenge.  Our hope is that these will help deepen not only your relationship with Jesus, but also transform your ministry.
