Downline Ministries equips Christ-followers in and through the local church to make disciples in their homes, churches and communities.
But that’s easier said than done.
The 2016 Downline Summit will be here before you know it, and we are so excited to be a part of what the Lord is doing with such a powerful weekend of full of shared insight, equipping and connection. The Downline Summit is a time for church members and churches to join together, fanning the flame of disciple-making—and renew their commitment to live out the great commission.
Downline Ministries exists to restore biblical discipleship in and through the local church. It is our desire to serve the local church by equipping students with a clear vision and definition of what Jesus meant when He said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” and providing them with resources, including the Downline Institute, Downline Builder, and Downline Summit Series to assist them in living a Great Commission lifestyle for a lifetime.
At Downline, we define discipleship as “truth and life transference in the context of authentic relationship” based on Paul’s description of his relationship with the Thessalonians (I Thess. 2:8). Paul’s love for the Thessalonians compelled him to give them the Truth of God and his life for their good and God’s glory. Our hope is that wherever you are in your journey toward making disciples in the home, church, and community, that this weekend would compel you to respond to the gospel by loving someone else to the point of sharing the Truth of God and your life with them, so he or she can in turn do the same with others.
The Summit speaking team consists of passionate, experienced and faithful Christ followers, such as Dr. K.P. Yohannan, Jen Wilkin, Robby Gallaty and Dr. Robert Coleman. Between main stage sessions and breakout workshops, we have no doubt you will leave the 2016 Downline Summit encouraged, inspired and refreshed to stay the course and continue investing your life into others for the sake of Christ.
It is our sincere hope that this weekend will refresh your relationship with Jesus and renew your passion for the mission He has entrusted you with and gifted you for. Please make plans to join us on February 5 and 6 at Hope Church in Memphis, TN, and invite others to come with you!

In addition to the Summit conference, we are also co-hosting a Church Leadership luncheon and a Summit After Party!

Yohannan, Dr. Robby Gallaty and led by Bobby Harrington of Discipleship.org. The panel will discuss how to make discipleship a core principle in churches, including why discipleship is lacking today, how leaders can turn it around and what practically matters most.
