More than twenty years ago, the leadership team at Perimeter Church, a rapidly growing church founded by Randy Pope, realized that personal, life-on-life missional discipleship was accounting for a unique and unmatched depth of spiritual growth and heart for outreach with the individuals involved. Insourcing tells the story of how they learned to bring discipleship back from the margins of church life to the mainstream.
Many pastors and leaders are slowly awakening to the reality that current models of ministry just aren't working the way they had hoped they would. Randy's journey as a pastor will encourage you and invite you to consider the effectiveness and fruitfulness of your own church's discipleship efforts.
