Jesus co-missions His followers to be disciples and make disciples. To see others know Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him and others. This means helping mature other followers into knowing Jesus more and more and offering those that don’t know Jesus the opportunity to know Him and become His disciple.
Discipleship: Following Jesus (see Matthew 4:19)
Disciple-Making: Follow me as I follow Jesus (see 1 Corinthians 11:1)
After coming to know Jesus, we find ourselves in varying stages of maturity in our relationship with Him and others. How do you view Jesus in your relationship? How can you help others grow in their relationship with Jesus?

BECOME A DISCIPLE
Our first step in disciple-making is to be a disciple of Jesus. This means growing in our relationship with Jesus, being a life-long learner or apprentice of Him and His Word(s). This may also include being discipled by someone!
Disciple-Making workshops COMING SOON!
Start engaging the co-mission by discipling others, either one on one or one on few! Or consider being discipled by someone first to see how it goes!
