Custom-Fit Discipleship

Custom-Fit Discipleship

There's no one-size-fits-all plan for evangelism or discipleship.


Too often we're offered five easy steps to evangelism or discipleship. And we eat it up. Because the truth is that evangelism and discipleship are messy. We'd much rather have a spelled-out plan to follow than figure it out as we go. But evangelism and discipleship require that we give up the easy step-by-step plans in favor of living life with people, building meaningful relationships, and following the Spirit's lead. Meaningful discipleship requires a custom fit.
