The Challenge

Normally discipleship is associated only with new believers however we are asking that every Christian, new and older, pray about our discipleship ministry opportunity. For new Christians, the need to go through a discipleship course is obvious. For older Christians, the reasons fall into two areas.

- To sharpen your own Christian life.
- To prepare you to be a disciplemaker.

Other benefits include spiritual friendship, encouragement and becoming more effective in your present ministries and your witness. If you would like more information about being discipled or becoming a disciplemaker, please ask the pastor. The course includes 10 lessons and requires some effort. Jesus never said that fulfilling the great commission would be easy.
