What is Authentic Discipleship?

Authentic Discipleship is a 12-topic course designed to change your mindset from “discipleship is something I do” to “I am a disciple-maker.” When discipleship becomes an identity rather than a task, everything we do becomes infused with ultimate significance. Through Authentic Discipleship, we invite you to experience not just following Jesus yourself but helping other people follow Him as well.

What you will learn about:

  • What it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
  • Why discipleship is important.
  • The different stages of spiritual maturity.
  • How to share the gospel with others.
  • How to grow in our own discipleship journey.
  • How to help those we are discipling become disciple-makers.
  • How to form a successful Life Group.
