Disciplemaking Process

What is Discipleship?

A disciple is someone who believes in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, intentionally learns from Him, and strives to live more like Him. Discipleship is a widely-used word to describe a journey of spiritual growth. This growth happens as a person comes alongside another to witness to them, pray with them, study the Bible with them, and fellowship with them.

This step in the disciplemaking process talks about the importance of coming alongside and supporting leaders who are trying to build community and future spiritual generations.
