Making Missionary Disciples Small Group

Add the Making Missionary Disciples small group training to your SEEK24 General Event Pass so you can receive practical skills and hands-on application for the Church’s vision for missionary discipleship. Our unique teaching approach gives you the opportunity to not only be equipped to share the Gospel and make disciples, but to immediately put it into practice!

Your life will be transformed as you deepen your journey of discipleship- but don’t stop there! Our parishes, families, and communities will be transformed when we learn how to accompany others to an encounter with Christ and equip them to share His love with others!

“I dream of a ‘missionary option’, that is, a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything.”

– Pope FRANCIS from Evangelii Gaudium

Who is the Making Missionary Disciples track for?
The Making Missionary Disciples track is for diocesan and parish leaders from across the country—clergy, DRE’s, youth ministers, sacramental prep leaders, volunteer small group leaders and ordinary Catholics of all ages and professions who want to see their parishes and dioceses transformed for Jesus Christ.
Do I have to participate in a small group?
You will have the option at registration to opt-in to a Making Missionary Disciples training small group. While this is not required, we highly encourage it if you want to get the most out of your SEEK24 experience! You’ll get extra training sessions from experts who have lived missionary discipleship in the parish, receive a training workbook and gain practical experience teaching others in your group. If you choose not to participate, you will still have the opportunity to attend a variety of Keynote and Impact sessions on prayer, evangelization in the parish, family life and more!
I’ve attended other trainings on evangelization. What’s different about the Making Missionary Disciples track at SEEK24?
Maybe you are a FOCUS alum who was formed in missionary discipleship on campus or you are a diocesan or parish leader who has been through other trainings on evangelization. SEEK24 is an opportunity to gather with thousands of other leaders like you to learn from each other and be encouraged in mission. Other trainings and conferences do a great job teaching basic evangelization skills, but very few are equipping missionary disciples who can not only teach others but effectively send disciples to make more disciples. Our unique small group training approach focuses on teaching teachers who will make a generational impact.
My parish staff, volunteers or parishioners want to attend together. Is group registration available?
Yes! We want to encourage parishes to bring a group of leaders to be trained and participate in a Making Missionary Disciples training small group together. That’s why we offer parish pack event passes for groups of six non-student attendees. Contact us for more information.
Will there be options for childcare?
Childcare will be available each full day of conference. More details to come!
FOCUS works to subsidize 80-90% of the cost of this service to ensure our families can experience SEEK.
How can I justify the time off of work?
We believe that the SEEK24 experience and practical tools you’ll be equipped with through the Making Missionary Disciples track are well worth the time investment! If you work for a parish, ministry, or other faith-based organization consider asking your employer to consider this as professional development.

Late arrivals or early departures are not ideal, but will still allow for participation in the main content of SEEK.
