Featured Leaders in this Resource Kit
Jim Putman is one of the leading voices on disciple making today. He is the founder and senior pastor of Real Life Ministries in Post Falls, Idaho. Real Life was launched with a commitment to discipleship and the model of discipleship Jesus practiced, which is called, “Relational Discipleship.” The church drew national attention for its dramatic growth and then they starting planting churches that also had a high impact. This effectiveness led Jim to co-found and serve as a visionary leader with the Relational Discipleship Network, a network of like minded churches in the USA and beyond.
Jim is a hunter, sports enthusiast, and he was a national champion wrestler in college. He holds degrees from Boise State University and Boise Bible College. He is the author of many books, including Church Is a Team Sport, Real Life Discipleship, Real Life Discipleship Workbook (with Avery Willis and others), Discipleshift (with Bobby Harrington and Robert Coleman), The Power of Together, and most recently, Hope for the Prodigal.
Dr. Bobby Harrington is the co-founder (with Todd Wilson) of and executive director of Discipleship.org, a national ministry that advocates for Jesus’ style of disciple making and hosts a national forum on disciple making. He is the founding and lead pastor of Harpeth Christian Church. He has trained hundreds of church planters and coaches of church planters (with Stadia) and he has authored multiple books on discipleship, including DiscipleShift(with Jim Putman), Dedicated, Discipleship that Fits (with Alex Absalom) and, most recently,The Disciple Maker’s Handbook (with Josh Patrick). Bobby and his lovely wife Cindy treasure spending time with their married children and their spouses, a new grandchild, other family, friends, and trips to Israel.

He is an author, speaker and consultant as an agent of change in the global church.
For 25 years, Greg served as visionary leader of the RiverTree Movement in Ohio. During that time the church grew from 100 to more than 3000 people, from 1 to 4 campuses, helped plant 15 churches throughout Ohio and 13 in Latin America, sponsored more than 2000 children with Compassion International and involved more than 200 families in adoption. Greg came to RiverTree after beginning his ministry as a church planter in Dublin, Ireland.
Bill Hull has spent his adult life as a discipleship evangelist. His twenty years as a local church pastor and more than twenty books on the subject testify to his commitment. Bill believes that the church faces a very practical problem, we keep trying to reach the world without first making disciples. We are preaching a gospel that separates conversion from discipleship. When this happens, we make disciples who don’t believe in discipleship. The solution is found in rebuilding a gospel that embraces discipleship. Because the gospel we believe in determines the kind of disciples we make. This problem and its solution are addressed in Bill’s newest work, Conversion & Discipleship: You Can’t Have One without the Other. The book’s thesis is that “All who are called to salvation are called to discipleship, no exceptions, no excuses.” As Bill often says, “Some believe you can have conversion without discipleship, I believe the proof of conversion is discipleship.”
