Jesus called every disciple to go out and make disciples (Matthew 28:16-20). It is in the process of making disciples that we become fully formed disciples. Most Christians would agree with this, but at the same time discipleship seems to be a lost art, at least in the western world. This course will restart your own discipleship while reframing your understanding of a biblical discipleship. Additionally, you will gain some practical tools for making disciples.
The course will be in a traditional classroom setting with lecture and discussion. The classes will meet weekly for two hours for twelve weeks. Some students may be attending via video conferencing from a secondary location.
