pastor shannon's notes
Vision save equip send
Jesus spoke into a small group of people, trained them, showed them, walked with them etc…. then they went out and did the same thing
Be a disciple of Christ, a committed follower. not just somebody that comes to church
follow me, transform you, then send you out to that with others
Am I disciple, or am I someone who just goes to church?
Easier to be a disciple...website
SAVE, EQUIP, SEND
hand out forms
SAVE - doesn’t mean just going to church, it means relationship with Christ
Sooo Good one on one, outreach, online
EQUIP - this is a lifelong process btw. This is the huddle

This Wednesday we are going to unveil the 40- year route of the Israelites in the wilderness using Hebrew definitions of locations. Took me 20 hours, but by George I think I got it. Didn't know if you wanted to invite new people to try out Discovery Class this week. Totally up to you. Shay
SEND - Go Serve, join a ministry, and go get people
Ministries - Off The Chain
One of the reasons people aren’t satisfied or happy is bc they’re doing things they weren’t designed to do…..i’m a talker, administrative work makes me unhappy
draw pic of tree….gown large and beautiful, draw roots…must also grow deep
Mark 5:18 Jesus cast out demons, actually 2000. the guys said, can i follow you. Jesus said, no. go and tell. you got ministry to do!
I want to move from just going to church…..I want to be a disciple. And i want to invest in others. well i don’t know the bible. that’s ok, first step Jesus just said, follow me.
last verse it says, “immediately” they dropped their nets. but i got this job, i got my baby daddy, I’m trying to get paid, etc……
now i’m not saying you have to quit your job. you might. I did
When we pray, i want to challenge you to be a disciple. part of that, is I GOTTA GO GET SOMEBODY. I can go to their house. Go to their ballgame. spend time with them on their tuff, then bring em to church. go get em. you gotta go where they are
PRAY: I want to be a disciple. follow you and make me a fisher of men/women. If you prayed that prayer, stand. one of the fundamental characteristics of a disciple, is the ability to obey. STAND, then come forward and we’re going to cheer!
