Fruitful Disciples

Do I want to be a Fruitful Disciple? Fruitfulness is seen in both our character and our reproduction of disciples. This series helps us see that our fruitfulness is dependent on our connection with God. We explore this connection through the lens of the “Greatest Commandments”: to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves.  There is a video, audio, and notes and questions to go with each session.
