Diciples that are truly following Christ make Him known to a world that needs to know Him. However, too often we treat discipleship and evangelism as separate functions. At the REDEFINE conference, you will be challenged to equip your church to make an impact in the world with the gospel through discipleship. For we must continually REDEFINE everything we do with Jesus and His Great Commission as our standard—engaging in discipleship that leads to evangelism and evangelism that leads to discipleship.
