Arch Ministries and Grace Church of Mentor were able to be a part of a Discipleship Seminar and Latin American Pastors' Fellowship in Monterrey, Mexico, from March 12-14. Pastor Tim, Pastor Kent, and Jude Leary traveled south for the conference.
Three days of teaching from multiple pastors focused on making disciples in the local church. Pastor Tim encouraged those attending to become disciple-making pastors and encourage their church family to follow their example and also become disciple-makers.
It soon became apparent that past teaching from American pastors had given these men a heavily pastor-centered ministry model. Training their people to disciple one another was a new approach for them! Please pray for these pastors and their congregations as they seek to grow in rich Bible knowledge and discipling one another. There were 80-90 pastors in attendance.
It was especially neat for those from Grace Church to see the Wolsieffers (our former church planting interns!) and Van Delinders. These two families traveled from Texas to help set up, serve food, and support the pastors in many other ways.
The Disciple-Makers Shepherds' Retreat was organized by Pastor Russell Raymer of Christian University of the Americas (UCLA) and Oremundo Ministries. UCLA is the only accredited Christian university in Mexico, and Oremundo produces teaching resources for Spanish-speaking Christians.
