The vision of the Abiding Network is to “assist leaders in creating environments of discipleship to encourage followers to know Christ and make Him known.” The Abiding Network is gaining traction with many church leaders across the US and we are taking steps to expand the next portion of this ministry to minister to more pastors. We have an amazing partnership with Influencers Global Ministries, and I encourage you to click on the following video where I sat down with the Elders of the Abiding Network to discuss some of these topics. When we sit down with a church leadership to help them create environments of discipleship, we utilize the Journey as the foundational delivery system and tool to build their platform. We have seen this work over and over in leaders’ lives, church members lives, and in the transformation of entire church cultures. This partnership is God given and Kingdom focused. A second tool we use is my book, The Abiding Church. In this book we break down the simplicity of Christ’s discipleship principles through the lens of abiding in Him. We lay out some practical, biblical principles that can help any church leader create, cultivate, and steward a platform of discipleship in the area of influence that God called them.

ABIDING NETWORK RESOURCES As we encounter church leaders who are passionate about creating a platform of discipleship that sees life transformation, we want to offer practical ways to serve them. Here are two simple ways we can begin these conversations. We have created a closed pastor’s group on Facebook that will be a place of encouragement and virtual discipleship coaching. In this group I will host virtual events that will focus on a small group of leaders processing discipleship and journey concepts within their individual ministries. If you are interested in this, please email the ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org I will be hosting two round table foxholes in 2019. This will consist of 3 days and 2 nights where pastors come to Arkansas for some soul care and processing the abiding church concepts for their own back yard. This will be a maximum of 10 pastors for each group. They will have already read The Abiding Church book and processed through some discussion questions. In this foxhole we will discuss how we can assist them in creating a platform of discipleship in their sphere of influence. The last session will be specifically on using the Journey as their platform.
