Discipleship Programme What's the point?
The Christian life is not meant to be lived in comfort – it’s meant to be missional. We’re supposed to be out there battling for souls who need saving – and need a Saviour. But we need to be prepared for the battle.
Discipleship is both about preparing ourselves for the battle, and about going out there and making disciples. We want to equip you and encourage you – and then we want you to GO!
What's it all about?
Week by week, you will follow a discipleship programme, designed to help you and encourage you in your walk with Jesus.
You can follow the discipleship pages here on the website in your own time, and you can also subscribe to receive the material by a regular email. The discipleship articles here, and the various resources on this page will give you a flavour of what the programme is like. Then, when you’re ready – use the link to FOLLOW HERE!
Each week, as you follow the Discipleship Programme, you will be able to submit answers to questions, and following successful completion of the programme, you will be awarded a certificate.
Please note that this is merely a Certificate of Completion – it is not recognised or accredited in any way.

What do others say?
Discipleship is a very challenging subject and to truly do it justice takes hard work and attention to detail. The author has managed to combine that detail with a very readable and lively style. His approach is practical and direct, but at the same time, he has not ignored the theology which is the essential foundation for a Biblical discussion of discipleship. Doctrine underpins Christian growth and without it the disciple has no benchmark to base his or her life upon.
The topics are challenging, and he has used the scriptures to explain his points and of course, to legitimise them. However, the Discipleship Programme is not so littered with them as to prevent a flow which would have made the Discipleship Programme very dry. Obviously, there are many obstacles that are faced by those wishing to live a life that reflects the character of Christ and these difficulties are not glossed over in any way.
The sheer scope of the Discipleship Programme is incredible in its range of topics is therefore broad. When this is the case very often writers go into very little depth; this cannot be said of the author’s approach. There are excellent chapters on spiritual gifts and the section on the Sermon on the Mount is very good.
I can therefore recommend this Discipleship Programme to anyone who wants to grow in Christ as an individual, but it would also make a great starting point for group study and nurture groups.
