Follow-ship Model: 

Matthew 6:24 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”

  • FOLLOW-ship 101:
    • I’ve heard about Jesus, but not much.
    • The Bible seems overwhelming and irrelevant. Where would I start?
    • If I go to church, I don’t get much out of it.
    • Life (Small) groups organized by the church seem scary.
    • What’s the difference between volunteering and serving?
    • Faith is a good idea, but I’m not sure what it has to do with my everyday life.
