A Discipleship Journey
The command of Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 to 'make disciples' is still His 'Plan A' to change lives and transform the world! Yet, somehow His mandate seems to have almost slipped through the cracks. Is it possible that His last command has become our least concern?
A Discipleship Journey (ADJ)
is a Scripturally sound, proven and practical resource to aid individuals, leaders and churches in obeying Jesus' command to 'make disciples'. It provides you with a deliberate one-year formational journey which can result in real life transformation when used as a tool to apply Scripture, walking in relationship with others and obeying what the Holy Spirit is revealing. And, in the end, it equips you with the ability to reproduce disciple-makers for the rest of your life!
ADJ has been used throughout various parts of the world and in many denominations and domains of culture over the last seven years. It has recently been re-released in a new one-year format with accompanying video and Facilitators Guide for small groups, as an Online Resource for individuals and as a Mobile App.
This tool is highly effective in that it can be adapted for use in one-on-one discipleship, as well as for use among leadership teams, staffs, small groups, men, women, young adults and youth. It is a one-year journey that offers various formats that can be customized to your unique setting. It has also proven to be effective in the context of discipling followers of Jesus within the workplace.
Another option for implementation is taking your entire church through the series over a period of one-year. This allows every follower of Jesus to grow and develop together with the aim of creating a multitude of disciple-makers. The key here is asking everyone to find one or two they can disciple when they complete their year's journey. Remember, you are not after disciples, but disciple-makers!
In light of the current economy, the Small Group Resource has been priced to make it extremely affordable for any group to use it. Consider: taking 10 people on a one-year journey costs $299 - $30 per person for an entire year or only $2.50 a month! And, if each person can contribute $30 - or even pay $15 for their ADJ manual - it makes it very affordable to take multiple groups of people through it. The Online Resource and Mobile App - at $49.95 - are also very inexpensive amounting to about $1.00 a week!
In addition to you, your team/group/organization/church going through it, consider partnering with Lionshare's ever-expanding network of disciple-makers, NetDMC. Our shared decade-long '2020 Vision' is teaming to reproduce one million disciple-makers as catalysts in domain transformation locally and globally
