Disciple-making in the world

N.C. BAPTIST PODCAST
March 6, 2018

This podcast was recorded at the Disciple-Making Conference breakout session training and focuses on disciple-making across different platforms. Jesus often talked in parables to help the crowds He taught understand deeper principles. Then and now, people remember a story—and that makes it an ideal non-confrontational way to share biblical truth with communities throughout the city or around the world. Sarah Davenport walks through some ways to present the gospel and make disciples across the globe with chronological Bible storying and beautiful henna design. Through personal examples and group engagement, she presents these tools in such a way so that leaders can use them and teach them to others, as 2 Timothy 2:2 encourages believers to do.

Here is an excerpt from this podcast:

“Chronological Bible storying is easy in a simple way that’s non-confronting of being able to share the truths from the Word of God. Eight-five percent of the Bible is story. Jesus taught in parables, Jesus told stories, He made things simple, everyday life so we could learn things. When somebody tells a story, that’s what you remember. You might not remember if somebody gives you a three-point sermon; you might remember that they all started with A, but will remember the story. So it’s an easy way to impart knowledge that’s non confrontive, but also in a way that people will remember it. Henna is another thing we will talk about; it’s a design primarily used by women in the countries of South Asia and in North Africa and across the Mediterranean. Generally, it’s used to decorate hands and feet for weddings and special occasions. We’ve developed it into a tool for presenting the gospel. My objectives are to talk about chronological Bible storying as a disciple-making tool and then identify some Bible stories that can be easily shared that speak to the gospel, explain henna storying and discuss for stories that have been used widely in groups. We’ll practice a story and interact with a story. In Asia and the culture that we started our career in with IMB, to be able to impart some kind of teaching or training, you need to tell your story. So I’m going to tell you a little piece of my story.”
