“The 72” is a non-geographically based expanding network of disciples aiming to multiply and support disciple-making efforts wherever possible.
In Luke 10 we read about a group – the 72. We don’t know their names or their stories, but they were clearly part of the ever-expanding group of followers of Jesus Christ. We are all part of the 72.
This is not just another place to take in more information – these short-term online gatherings are designed to help you hear God and do what He is saying (Matt 7:24-27). Sessions will include biblical teaching, real testimonies and space to process with others how God is wanting to break more deeply into your life.
CLBI has a campus in Camrose Alberta which is the heart of this discipling movement. Here people can come for one semester or up to two years. In the future, we hope to have various immersion experiences in different locations in the US and Canada. These experiences may be for a weekend or for a couple of weeks.
LAUNCHING OF MISSIONAL
As disciples are ready to embrace the mission God has for them we want them to invite others to join them. This may be on a college campus, in a new business, local church, church plant, or a cross-cultural missionary setting – all of these are part of this discipling movement.
the first experiment
The 72 is hosting a weekly evening online gathering that will run for 6 sessions.
A number of alumni from CLBI have been trained up to be small group facilitators and are ready to go.
Sessions begin on Monday, Feb 3, 2020 at 8:00 pm MST
Target Group for this 1st experiment: Grade 12 (Sr in High School) to people in their early 20’s
SCHEDULE FOR EACH EVENING
Welcome – all participants will log into zoom (zoom is the video conferencing service we are using). After a random question is asked to break the ice, teaching begins.
Teaching – After introductions are made, there will be 30 minutes of teaching / discussion on the theme of “IDENTITY”.
Break-out Groups – all participants will be in a group of 5 or 6 people to discuss and reflect on how God is at work in their lives. In these small groups you will be invited to answer three questions:
These are the three questions that will guide the conversation in the small group time.
- How is God getting your attention?
(From the teaching, or something going on in your life that you need to process)
- How is God wanting to change the way you think?
- What is God inviting you to believe?
