Discipleship Training School


Discipleship Training School

The Discipleship Training school is a free training course designed to challenge and equip Christians to faithfully join God in His mission to make disciples of all nations.

It is our prayer that God would use this material to equip His people for His service by the power of His spirit. We don't want people to just learn about discipleship. We want people to actively become disciple-making disciples to bring people to Jesus and closer to Jesus.

Over the nine weeks, we will be covering the following material.

  • What is a Disciple and Discipleship
  • Why we should make disciples and why we don't
  • Heart Values For Disciple makers
  • Healthy Habits for Disciple makers
  • Jesus - The Model of Discipleship
  • The How of Discipleship / Disciple Making (Part 1)
  • The How of Discipleship / Disciple Making (Part 2)
  • Missional Communities & Conclusion
  • Q & A Session - Based on Questions raised in community groups


1 - What is a Disciple & Discipleship?


If you asked a group of Christians the following questions, you're likely to get a variety of answers.

  • What is a disciple?
  • What does it mean to make disciples?
  • What does it mean to disciple somebody?
Because these terms get used in so many different ways, it's essential we start by defining our terms so we're all on the same page from the start.

2 - Why We Should Make Disciples & Why We Don't


In the first session we established that all Christians are called to be disciple-makers. In reality, this is wasn't what we observe within the Christian community.

In this session, we look at the reasons why disciple-making should be a normal part of our everyday Christianity. The fact that it is not the normal practice for many Christians, means we also need to address the reasons why disciple-making is not the everyday norm for many.

3 - Heart Values For Disciple Makers


Everything we do is an expression of what is in our heart. This is why the Bible says to guard your heart with all diligence because out of it flow the issues of life.

This means that if we are to be effective disciple-makers, we need to foster a love for things that are conducive for disciple making.

4 - Healthy Habits For Disciple-Makers


For something to become part of your everyday rhythm of life, you need to establish healthy habits that support the practice of disciple-making.

In this session, we look at some basic habits of life that will help us to make disciples as a natural habit of our lives.

5 - Jesus - The Model of Disciple-Making


OK. The secret is out. I don't have some new fandangle technique for making disciples - nor do I need to. We look to Jesus as the model for our disciple-making practices. It may seem pretty basic but as Jesus poured his life into twelve people and charged them with the task of making disciples of all nations, they changed the world.

6 - The How of Discipleship / Disciple-Making (Part 1)


If you're impatient like me, this may be the session you've been waiting for as we begin to unpack the actual practice of making disciples. However, we NEED the foundations of the previous sessions.

We need also keep in mind, that no technique, skill or giftedness will change a single person. When Jesus outlined his mission for his disciples he also said "wait here until you receive power" (the coming of the Holy Spirit). We too need to be people led by, enabled and depending upon the Spirit of God who lives within us.

7 - The How of Discipleship / Disciple-Making (Part 2)


This is the second half of our sessions on the practice of disciple-making.

We need also keep in mind, that no technique, skill or giftedness will change a single person. When Jesus outlined his mission for his disciples he also said "wait here until you receive power" (the coming of the Holy Spirit). We too need to be people led by, enabled and depending upon the Spirit of God who lives within us.

8 - Missional Communities & Conclusion


So far we've mainly focused on disciple-making for individuals. However, we were created in community and for community.

In this session we look disciple-making within community.

9 - Q&A Session (Based on Feedback)

This session will be determined by questions raised within the community groups of Eastgate Bible Church.

Unlike the other sessions, this will not be exactly one week after the previous session as many questions may not get raised until all of the material has been covered.
