When Jesus gave the Great Commandment in Matthew 28 to go and make disciples, they knew what to do. Not so anymore. Often Christians are wondering how to grow as Christian themselves, let alone disciple others.
Yet, we do understand that making disciples is plan A of the church. There is simply no plan B, but often Christians get stuck, discouraged or try to do discipleship on their own, longing that there was some feedback, mentoring and direction in all this.
This course aims at giving a clear vision for disciple-making for Dianella Church of the Nazarene. It gives you a framework to work with. Disciple-making becomes more intentional, relational and reproducible. You’ll learn hands-on skills like sharing your personal testimony or how to answer common questions of seekers. You can use this no matter what your personal and ministerial context is. The course aims not just for head knowledge, but also for hands-on practice. Whether you are considering opening up your home for a small group as a facilitator (or even lead a group of your own), or you are wondering how you could be more intentional/relational in discipling your children or perhaps having a faith conversation with a colleague or mate…this course is really helpful.
Our pilot group kicked off on March 15 for a journey of 13 rounds. We explore what discipleship is and isn’t. It’s not a program, event, meeting, curriculum. It’s not just one-on-one. It’s not done only by the pastor, nor is it a bible study only. What is it? How does it look like in 2018. Do you want to get equipped for your mission to make disciples? I encourage you to join in this course. In September 2018 we’ll launch a second group. The course can also be done through video-conferencing. We use ZOOM as our platform.
