Discipleship Works is bringing together leading innovators from three major interconnecting fields. This conference will offer fresh, hope-filled perspectives, encouraging and equipping participants to move beyond intellectual knowledge about God to life-changing encounters with the one who binds up the brokenhearted and sets the captive free (Isaiah 61:1).

Come learn and experience theologically sound insights and practices that will help bring understanding to the root causes of our fragmented hearts and relationships, while also providing practical ways we can partner with God to become more wholehearted.

This event is a unique opportunity for everyone who desires to have a more satisfying relationship with God and others, and for all who want to be more effective in fostering wholeness and spiritual growth in the lives of those around them.

Featured speakers will teach and facilitate spiritual formation exercises related to the following topics:

Curt Thompson, M.D
- Disintegration: The Divided Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength
- Integration: The Undivided Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength
