About Round Tables

Disciple First is committed to seeing churches becoming disciple-making churches. We have seen these lunches have a very powerful impact in Pastors and then those pastors networking and sharing from there. Here are a few key points about these lunches:

  • An opportunity for pastors in a local area to network and build relationships.
  • Talking points about disciple-making in the local church.
  • Some of the first steps to becoming a disciple-making church.
