Helping Disciples Become Disciplers

Why Discipleship?

“Go and Make Disciples.” This was Jesus’ final command as he ascended into heaven. Yet, only 17 percent of Christians can tell you that this is the Great Commission and what it means. We are at a historically pivotal point with our Christian faith in America as biblical literacy continues to decline and robust discipleship vacates the pews.

We need men and women who are committed to the lifelong process of being formed into the likeness of Jesus for the sake of others. It begins by being discipled and continues by discipling others.

Being Discipled

Discipleship is the lifelong process of being formed into the likeness of Jesus for the sake of others. This happens through being committed to truth, working out our theology in relationship with one another, and ensuring that Christ comes before anything else. Put simply in the words of John:

"He must increase, but I must decrease" (John 3:30).

Discipling Others

Just as the disciples went from being discipled by Jesus to discipling others, our journey in discipleship goes from learning to teaching. In the words of A.W. Tozer, "Only a disciple can make a disciple."

Ready to take the next step in your journey and begin discipling others?

For Church Leaders

Many pastors and churches don't have the bandwidth to provide the attention required for discipleship. After all, Jesus only had three close friends and twelve disciples. Our passion is working with churches to ensure that the gospel of Christ goes from the pulpit to the pews and into practice.

“Discipleship is the process of becoming who Jesus would be if he were you.”
