The Discipling 101 Program’s principles underpin the small group process of:- Engaging people where they are at, according to their culture.
Establishing the foundations of Christianity.
Equipping believers to explain their faith to others.
Empowering all believers to disciple.
The understanding and experience gained through actively participating in group discussions provide individuals with the tools and confidence to share their faith. Discipling 101 is an ideal follow-up to a Church event where people have had an ‘Experience’. It facilitates a journey of personal discovery (within the boundaries of biblical truths), develops relationships and connects people with established Christians. Groups are initiated by discussion facilitators rather than teachers.
A safe place for friendship and fellowship is created as each participant is given the opportunity to openly share their feelings, thoughts, ideas and beliefs concerning the questions relating to Faith. This gives the facilitator an insight into each group member’s current perceptions. The participant, in the privacy of their own home, then interacts with the lesson material under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, thus developing their own personal relationship with Jesus. Personal revelations and questions arising from the studies then form the basis of discussion for the next group get-together.
There is no right or wrong way to use this resource. Group facilitators do not need to be teachers or leaders. They simply organise a venue to meet, invite some people along, point them towards the program download and facilitate the journey.
To go into all the world and MAKE DISCIPLES …. Matthew 28:19
