AMPLIFY WORKSHOP INTENSIVES:
Creating Your Discipleship Pathway
A discipleship pathway is a simple, well-defined set of Jesus-centered practices a pair or small group of Christians can move through together, then invite others to do the same. The point is intentional relationships that give Christians actual experience walking and talking with Jesus, in community with other believers. If your church would like to create an original pathway of your own, the process can feel daunting, but we are here to help. This workshop hands you the tools to understand, create, and implement an intentional discipleship pathway in your own community.

Going Digital with Discipleship
Over the past two years, technology has accelerated how we operate in our daily lives. We can now order groceries, get medical care, do banking, buy cars – all digitally from the comfort of our homes. Why can’t discipleship also happen in this same way? Learn how you can use technology as a tool to introduce people to Jesus and as a starting point into a discipling relationship.

The Revival We Need: Reclaiming Our Wesleyan Voice
Our weary world is ripe for spiritual awakening and the Wesleyan message of optimistic grace, sanctification, and the Spirit-filled life is exactly what is needed. In this workshop, we will explore ways God has moved mightily in the past and consider how we might re-dig ancient wells of renewal so that a fresh outpouring may be experienced in our churches and communities.

Safe Conversations on Culture, Race, and Ethnicity
Culture, race, and ethnicity are complex topics to address, but ones that are being discussed in both private and public forums across our churches and communities. If you are seeking greater understanding, this is a safe place to ask the questions you have wanted to ask and have the conversations you have wanted to have. The conversation will be led by a panel and this workshop will not be broadcast or recorded.

Elementos del Discipulado
La pandemia introdujo un concepto que ha impactado todas nuestras relaciones: el distanciamiento social. Dicha práctica nos hizo volver a pensar en el valor de la proximidad con relación a otros y en la importancia de los encuentros a cara descubierta. En este taller vamos a reexaminar los elementos del discipulado, no como programas eclesiales ni como entrenamiento para nuevos creyentes, sino como el camino hacia la madurez espiritual de todo creyente. Exploraremos los conceptos bíblicos de presencia, proximidad, y de encuentros cara-a-cara. Además, tendremos un dialogo acerca de cómo iniciar, participar, y comisionar procesos de mentoría.
Elements of Discipleship
The pandemic introduced us to a concept that has impacted every relationship: social distancing. Such a practice compels us to reflect on the value of proximity toward others and the importance of unmasked encounters. In this workshop, we will reexamine the elements of discipleship, not as an ecclesial program or as a prologue for new believers, but, rather, as the pathway to spiritual maturity for all believers. We will explore the biblical concepts of presence, proximity, and face-to-face encounters. Additionally, we will dialogue about how to initiate, participate, and commission mentorship processes.
