The Vine Project Conference with Colin Marshall (Audio and Video)

ReGrowth Conference - Colin Marshall - Disciplemaking in the Local Church

In the fall of 2015, Leadership Resources had the privilege of hosting the Re:Growth Conference with Colin Marshall, author of the acclaimed The Trellis and the Vine (watch a short video summary of The Trellis and the Vine) for a conversation around growing a culture of disciples making disciples in the local church.

UPDATE: Much of the content from this mini-conference is included in the recently released book The Vine Project: Shaping Your Ministry Culture Around Disciple-Making by Colin Marshall. Read our review.

What is Re:Growth?

Re:Growth is more than a training course: it’s a theologically driven approach to leading culture change. Rather than a superficial fix or a short course, Re:Growth is a robust process that aims for lasting and true change.

The ultimate aim of Re:Growth is to change the ministry DNA of the whole church, by doing a deep work in a few change makers, a work which will multiply as they, and you, make disciples.

Re:Growth has been developed on biblical principles of discipleship, and a tried and tested framework that has emerged from real world experience and groundwork of coaching churches in many different areas and contexts.

Here is a short biography for Colin Marshall:

Colin has spent the past 40 years training men and women in the ministry of the gospel, both in university and local church contexts. He is a graduate of Moore Theological College and the author of The Trellis and the Vine (with Tony Payne)Growth Groups, and Passing the Baton. He was the Director of the Ministry Training Strategy (MTS) for 15 years to 2006 and took up the role of International Director until 2009. Alongside his work for MTS, he was Chaplain to the NSW Cricket Team for 8 years.

Col founded the Vinegrowers ministry in 2010 to help pastors and church leaders implement the principles of The Trellis and the Vine and build churches where disciple-making affects everything. He works alongside the ministry team at St George North Anglican Church in Sydney, training men to be effective leaders of disciple-making ministries.
