Discipleship is more than a ministry.
It's about PEOPLE FOLLOWING JESUS.
What is the Discipleship Ministry?
The Discipleship Ministry is a one with one Bible based study process that we utilize in an effort to help fulfill the principle we find in 2 Timothy 2:2 ``And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.``
Who May Participate?
The Discipleship Ministry is open to everyone! Whether you are a long time Christian, a new believer, or a seeker, you will find the Discipleship Ministry rewarding.
How Does It Work?
In the Discipleship Ministry, you will be paired with a same gender discipleship study partner who has completed the prescribed DM Material and is ready to disciple someone else. Weekly meetings will encourage and challenge both of you as you seek to put God and His will for your lives first.
It Takes Effort
The Discipleship Ministry is for earnest Bible students and requires studying partners to meet weekly for lesson discussion, memory verse review and prayer. Each partner is expected to develop and participate in a personal daily quiet time which includes completing assignments for their weekly meeting. Finally, partners will share with others what they have learned and are following.
LIVING THE BIBLE

The Purpose of Discipleship
The Ministry is designed to help each one of us grow into a mature relationship with Jesus. Once we are nurtured and instructed in the discipleship process, we take what we have learned and share it with others. This Ministry helps us become disciples, while at the same time helping us make disciples. As each disciple goes out and disciples others, we move from seeing people added to the Lord’s Church, to seeing the Lord’s Church multiplied!
