Wineskins for Discipleship

"New wine must be stored in new wineskins."

Jesus' command to go make disciples is timeless. But the structures and methods for fulfilling that commission change from generation to generation.

This blog is a discussion for pastors and church leaders who are exploring new ways to make disciples. The only thing that is sacred is the mission. Small group models are not sacred. Sunday School systems are not sacred. Certain curriculum is not sacred. The only thing that is sacred is the mission- to make disciples.

I just found your blog, and so far i find it to be VERY good! thanks for sharing your thoughts, and own resources. have you ever heard of a guy by the name of Ray Vander Laan? his website is, the stuff he teaches about discipleship and how it looked in Jesus' day is amazing and invigorating. his audio teachings "The Dust of the Rabbi" are great...if you've seen the "Dust" Nooma video you have heard pieces of what these teachings discuss. anyway, i can start to ramble for far too long when talking about people becoming more like Jesus...sorry! again...thanks for the blog! peace~

WOW! Thanks. Those words are like a shot of adrenalin. I am pastor of a new church in GA. ya'll.

After years in youth ministry, I was ordained in 2000. After 5yrs the Lord opened this opportunity. I wanted to take the challenge of a group of people who were radically committed to Jesus and definately not tied down by church stuff.( and sometimes its lonely out here.) So THANKS!

As you say Sunday School systems are not sacred. I agree, any input on how to make smooth transition from Sunday School systems to discipleship in our church?

Eventually, there would be no Sunday School in our church?
