Church leaders from 10 congregations in the Belize City (Central America) area attended a July 11-12 discipleship conference sponsored by Central American Lutheran Mission Society (CALMS) and partner congregations working with CALMS to make disciples and build houses for the poor in the community of Ladyville, a suburb of Belize City.
The conference included eight presenters who shared on topics such as relational discipleship, spiritual formation, equipping new disciples and new disciple-makers, and discipleship strategies. Bible study, worship, and prayer were a key part of the conference designed to help the Belize congregations make and grow disciples of Jesus who live for and represent Jesus every day!
Church Doctor Ministries attended this conference. Kent Hunter, founder, presented on discipling new Christians and new leaders. Tracee Swank, leader, presented to spiritual formation. David Bruce, intern, assisted during the conference.
