Speaking of fabulous content, great teaching, and gorgeous location . . . How could I forget Making Disciples?



Especially since we are offering discounts for multiple attendees so you don't have to go alone?

Let's see. Fabulous content?

Do you wonder how to get Catholics in your parish or diocese excited about their faith? Are you concerned about family, friends, and parishioners who seem to have lost their faith or left the Church but don’t know how to help? you involved in pastoral ministry or evangelization? Do you work in adult faith formation, sacramental prep, stewardship or RCIA? Are you a pastor, diocesan or parish staff?

Spend 5 days at at the Institute's Making Disciples Seminar this summer learning how to really help Catholics – active or lapsed - or any adult, make the journey to intentional discipleship. And you don’t have to go it alone. Come with a friend or colleague and enjoy a discounted rate, Save even more if you bring a whole group!

The heart of Making Disciples is learning the art of pre-evangelization and an initial proclamation of Christ that calls for a deliberate personal response. Making Disciples will help you

Understand why initial discipleship precedes catechesis and how life-changing catechesis and formation builds on
discipleship.

Learn how to listen for and recognize pre-discipleship stages of spiritual growth.

Learn how to facilitate the spiritual growth of those - whether baptized and “active” or not - who are not yet disciples.

Learn how to articulate the basic kerygma that awakens initial faith in a gentle and non-threatening way.

Learn how to use these skills in a wide variety of settings: RCIA/inquiry, adult faith formation, sacramental prep, spiritual
direction, pastoral counseling, gifts and vocational discernment, and in relationships with your family and friends.


Great teaching?

Fr. Mike and I and the fabulous Barbara Elliott will be there along with Joe Waters of Duke who will be interning with us this summer. Pastoral leaders from 30 dioceses in the US and Australia have attended Making Disciples (and this summer we've got an attendee from Singapore!) and come away very excited:

The concept of intentional discipleship is absolutely exciting!! The team did a great job presenting, explaining, equipping, motivating, modeling it. THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH!

The conference truly lived up to and surpassed my deepest expectations.

This was a life-changing experience for me. I don't think I have ever gone through a program where I have taken back so much.

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay.
