Thursday, April 11, 2019 | The Thresholds of Conversion

Thresholds of ConversionBeing aware of the five thresholds of postmodern conversion (from mistrust to trust, from complacency to curiosity, from being closed off to change to being open, from meandering to seeking, and finally, to discipleship) can help us to accompany people more effectively on their discipleship journey. During this session, we will talk about these thresholds and practical ways we can recognize and walk with those in each of the stages.
