Gospel Discipleship Training

Discipleship Training Classes

Could your church, or non-profit organization, benefit from a class on the gospel?  I know that might sound strange, speaking to churches which are founded on the gospel, but ask yourself, “How many members could articulate the gospel?”  What about making disciples?  What does it look like to actually make a disciple of Jesus?

Allow us to conduct a 4-week seminar for your church, or group.  In this class, we will study the gospel from the viewpoint of Jesus’ Great Commission to His disciples.  We will seek to understand Jesus’ authority and identity.  We will also examine biblical examples of people sharing the gospel in both the Old and New Testaments and seek to pattern our gospel presentations to be similar to what they did (we are disciples, so we follow, too!).  We will seek to understand the big picture of God’s redemptive purpose and plan.  Finally, we will look at a few examples of what it means to follow Jesus’ commands, which is what He commands us to teach others.

OBJECTIVE:  That church members would grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and have more confidence in sharing their faith in Him with others.
