Finding a Fixed Mindset Amongst The Frantic
By Kara Martin

We’ve combined the insights gleaned from our 2023 Summit on Discipleship, along with further research, to produce this 2024 Emerging Trends in Discipleship Report.

Apart from highlighting trends in the discipleship landscape, the report also seeks to answer a key question ‘How do we reimagine approaches to discipleship, so that we grow disciples who more effectively engage the world around them?’

Six trends are identified in the report, along with four implications for our practise.

The trends highlight the particular importance of participation in the process of discipleship.

Followers of Jesus are tired of being passive recipients of Christian teaching. They want discipleship that relates directly to their everyday lives, and they’re looking to churches to help them discover and step into their distinctive part in God’s mission.
