On February 9, 2013, over 6,700 Victory group leaders from across Metro Manila converged at the PhilSports Arena for Discipleship 2013. Students, young professionals, couples, kids, and even senior citizens came together for the half-day conference.
Our Victory group leaders were the first to see a new perspective of their Discipleship Journey. Brand-new discipleship tools, including the ONE 2 ONE app on iTunes and discipleship.ph, Victory’s new leaders’ resource, were also revealed for the first time.
Current and upcoming Victory group leaders were encouraged with a series of videos that depicted real stories of how Victory group leaders engaged, established, equipped, and empowered the people around them. (Read these inspiring stories from discipleship2013.com.) Another unforgettable moment came when conference participants sent encouraging thank-you messages to individuals who helped them grow as leaders.
As if all of these were not yet exciting enough, the leaders were in for another surprise! Every Victory group leader at Discipleship 2013 received an exclusive, limited edition USB baller ID giveaway which contains materials that will help them as they lead others through the discipleship journey.
Pastor Steve Murrell delivered a powerful message about passing the baton of the gospel. Through an illustration, he reminded the leaders that Victory groups are not to be like bowls nor colanders, but funnels that invite people in and lead them through the discipleship process. (Listen to Pastor Steve’s message on discipleship.ph.)
“If we fail to pass the baton of the gospel, we have missed the point, we have run in vain, we have wasted our time.” – Steve Murrell
The conference was capped with a time of prayer. Pastors and ministry leaders led the congregation to a big prayer meeting as prayers were spoken for the nation, church planting, compassion ministry, the campuses, and world missions.

The conference ended with a celebration, as the arena was filled with shouts and songs of praises to God. The Victory group leaders left that afternoon with a renewed vision and drive to continue honoring God and making disciples.
If you were one of our Victory group leaders who attended the event, thank you for honoring God and making disciples with us!
