Grow weekend 2020

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…Matthew 28:18-19

In the Great Commission of the Bible, Jesus calls his disciples to go and make disciples...but what exactly does that mean for other Christian believers? 

What is a disciple? And how do you make one?

The GROW 2020 Weekend will be an information packed time designed to help you grow in faith and equip you to share that faith with others so that they may take the next steps in becoming a disciple.
