Grow

God uses changed lives to change lives!

Disciple_Be One Make One“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.”  Matthew 28:19-20

Wouldn’t you love to have a “spiritual” growth spurt this year?  One way you can experience spiritual growth is through One-on-One Discipleship. The word “disciple” comes from a Greek word that means “apprentice” as in “one who learns by doing.”  Therefore, One-on-One Discipleship is when one Christian meets with another Christian in order to help that person become an “apprentice” of Jesus Christ and to experience spiritual growth by learning and doing.

Discipleship is more than just teaching someone some facts about the Bible.  Discipleship means encouraging, supporting, and praying daily for the person being discipled.  Discipleship means spending time with the other person—sharing meals, discussing problems, serving others, etc.  Discipleship means nothing less than walking together side-by-side and growing together in the Lord.

Disciples Who Make Disciples

In our One-on-One Discipleship process, you will be paired with a mature Christian to meet once/week for ten weeks to receive training in the key areas of the Christian life.  This process is meant to fit around your schedule and meeting places can range from our church, a coffee shop, or your home.  The ultimate goal is that after being discipled you will become a discipler for someone else.  After all, God uses changed lives to change lives!
