Where does Evangelism end and Discipleship begin? Most of the time these two items are treated as mutually exclusive from one another. The reality is they possess a relationship that occupies the same space, some would say they have synergy. In church that synergy is expressed through the progression of a new member. They were invited to church, they were invited to join the church. Then, they were invited to discover their abilities in God, which leads to being invited to become a part of an operating ministry or begin preparing to begin a new ministry based upon their gifting and the need to be met. All the while we see that the person is growing in wisdom and understanding and God is blessing them to handle what they have the faith to handle. So, we see that the witnessing never ends and the discipling is constant. Where are you in the process?
