Approaches to Congregational Discipleship

The editor of Mapping Christian Education, Jack L. Seymour, has developed a very insightful perspective on how churches tend to approach discipleship.

Check it out HERE.

As you view the various approaches to congregational formation and faith-life integration, determine where your bent lies. If you are a teacher or facilitator of an ongoing community group, how do you see your philosophy coming out in your strategy? How does it align with the overall philosophy/strategy of the organization your are linked with?

While every community has a certain bent…should we strive to integrate all three approaches for a more holistic, discipleship approach, or choose what is “best” for you?
