The Disciples Path series was created by disciple-makers for disciple-makers. We recruited 14 disciple-making church leaders to think through how to instill the doctrines, biblical understandings, principles, and practices of discipleship with the end of making disciples who would make disciples. This group of leaders included senior pastors, education ministers, small group pastors, collegiate ministers, and discipleship pastors from various ministry areas and traditions.
When these experts gathered together in one room, the environment was electric. They discussed biblical expectations of a disciple, Jesus' model of disciple-making, personal experiences in disciple-making, even personal biases. These ideals were verbalized, translated, evaluated, and siphoned through until the team pruned a list of disciple-making principles and practices that are not only biblical but practical.
But these experts did much more than simply define the principles and practices that would be utilized. They determined the studies to create, the sessions to include, and the format to use. And, to ensure consistency and to preserve the passion, most sessions were written by one of these knowledgeable, disciple-making church leaders.
The outcome is a series of studies that, when used as suggested, is a powerful tool in the hands of anyone willing to disciple another believer.
There are several biblical principles that led to the development of the Disciples Path series: the disciples path is progressive, the disciples path is relational, the disciples path is disciplined, and the disciples path is replicable.View More
