Led by Rev. Bob Farr

This full-day event is a follow up to Bob’s popular webinar based on his book Get Their Name - Grow Your Church by Building New Relationships. Join us as we learn to share your faith without anxiety! Most churches and Christians target the wrong people with “evangelism” efforts. The model we use no longer works, because it is too passive, too polite and focused in the wrong direction. We will cover how to change the habits of leaders and entire congregations, so that the invitation to discipleship is natural, constant, systemic, genuine, and easy. Join us to see how your church can change, and equip your people to share their faith in a way that is effective, biblical and transformational.

Here’s what one participant wrote after the webinar: I was struck by a couple of things. One - Bob Farr's approach to teaching seems to be pretty much what he's trying to get us to understand - relationships lead to change. He speaks to us. His stories are our stories. His experiences, ours. So in the telling, he brings us on board fairly quickly. He gets to the point, has relevant examples, and is honest about the time it will take for change to happen. We need his down to earth approach - his honesty - his encouragement - and his refusal to give up on making disciples. This is truly discipleship training.
