Your church body will learn:
Using The Four Priorities, encourage your church family to engage in one-on-one disciple-making.
The Four Priorities is the best foundational book to teach the principles of being discipled and discipling others. There are great materials out there to use in conjunction with or after The Four Priorities, but we have found this to be an effective 1st and 2nd step: hosting the summit then discipling with The Four Priorities book) as the foundational platform for this type of one-on-one discipleship.
Create authentic community among believers as they learn by example how to reproduce disciples by investing their lives into younger believers.
Disciple-making is a life style…it has no finish date! Jesus’ last command was to go and make disciples who make disciples. Jesus intends that both the disciple-maker and the disciple would now reproduce a faith foundation in someone else. This continues throughout the life of the church and the lifetime of a disciple.
Much of discipleship is caught rather than taught. We all need someone to help us become the person God wants us to be. Jesus is not only our Savior, but our Teacher. We learn from Him.
A disciple is one who follows and imitates the life and teachings of another as that person imitated Christ. The Apostle Paul said, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”
Reproducing disciples involves taking what the Lord has invested into your life through learning and following another and passing along those truths and faith foundation to others.
