Fostering Discipleship

With the support of a coach, provided through gifts to Presbyterians Sharing, Eglise St- Luc's leadership team in Montreal is learning ways to evangelize and foster discipleship beyond Sunday mornings. They started with one mid-week Bible sharing group, which quickly grew to three, and now a fourth is in the works. Like Paul and Barnabas in Acts 13, members of Eglise St-Luc are actively sharing the gospel, and the good news of Christ's saving power is spreading "like wildfire all through the region" (v.49; The Message).

Presbyterians Sharing engages in evangelism, outreach and discipleship
