Discipleship is not a program but a way of life. Mission is a hot-topic in many Christian circles but perhaps if we do a better job making disciples, mission and community engagement will be a natural byproduct. Since people only spend 1-2 hours/week at church, our discipleship-strategy needs to be focused around the other 166 hours of people's weeks. Similarly, we need strategies that not just focus on what Christians believe, but how we live in light of our faith.
This course will provide an environment to interact over how we can more effectively make disciples and also better help others within our ministries to make disciples. We’ll identify common principles and Biblical values, and also help one another apply our learning in ways that best fit our unique ministry contexts.
students will theologically engage the topic of discipleship and develop a plan for your ministry's approach to discipleship.
