The Way of the Carpenter workshop is designed to help leaders discover and practice four tools of a strategic leader that Jesus used to develop His disciples.   Jesus shaped these “twelve incompetent guys” into world changers by investing in their leadership training – understanding where they were in their development as “fishers of men”, and then patiently discipling them.  This people development model can be learned and used by any leader who chooses to follow Jesus’ way of leading and discipling others.
