Going Deeper with Banded Discipleship

New Room Gatherings bring the vision of new room from big stage presentation to round table transformation. We are focusing this year’s gatherings around our core commitment to Banded Discipleship. What is it? Why does it matter? How do we do it?

Why Banded Discipleship? Because we find ourselves at the end of a long era of church growth emphasis waking up to the fact that in so many cases we have managed to grow churches that aren’t growing people.

Yes, we have found we can grow churches without growing people. New Room’s core conviction is the church only grows as her people are growing. You can grow churches without growing people but you can’t grow people without also growing the church.

These New Room Gatherings will be all about growing people into mature disciples who are becoming disciple makers. The day will be filled with visionary insight, practical wisdom and hands on practice. Banded Discipleship is not a new idea but it promises to be a new wineskin. The New Wine of the Holy Spirit is looking for new wineskins. Like you, we are pretty sure it won’t be new programs that do the trick. It is going to take a new class of relationships. It’s going to take disciples banding together in order to sow for a great awakening. If you are looking for a quick fix, this isn’t the ticket. If you are ready to put your hand to the plow in a new way and play the long game of awakening, . . . then you’ve got to be here.
