As a pastor, you know the importance of discipleship in the life of believers in the local church. You want to help others grow to become mature and equipped followers of Christ but you don't feel confident to know how to do that so that movement starts and reproduces.
In this group coaching course you will experience a taste of "life on life missional discipleship" so you can effectively start a discipleship movement in your church.
We will look at the foundations, philosophy and practical strategies of experiencing Jesus through his plan of life on life missional discipleship.
This leadership course is designed for pastors who:
- are a mature believer who has a heart to help others grow spiritually
- want to have a proven process for making and training disciples
- are frustrated with the challenge of developing leaders
- see that most small groups really aren't producing mature and equipped followers of Christ
- want to help others grow but don't have a reproducable strategy to do it
- need a tested curriculum with a proven track record
What could be the results of faithfulness and fruit in your discipleship ministry?
- You would be used by God to help people become mature and equipped followers of Jesus.
- You will have a process to help other believers grow.
- Other men and women will be intentionally challenged spiritually and they will step up to lead.
- The places where the people live, work, play and worship could begin to change for the good.
- Giving may increase as people grow spiritually.
