With these words Jesus commissioned His original disciples--and all future followers--with His primary strategy to mature and multiply His church!
Disciple-making is reproducing the character, ways and mission of Jesus in those around us, expecting them to multiply the same within others.
A Discipleship Journey (ADJ) is a resource created to equip followers of Jesus to grow spiritually while being empowered to make disciples that make disciple-makers. Whether it is grounding a young believer in core biblical truths or shoring up the foundations of veterans of the faith, this interactive resource leads Jesus followers through a dozen key discipleship themes. Punctuated with a year's worth of reflections on the character of God and historical quotes from leaders throughout church history, this manual is designed to equip disciples on their journeys and serve as a tool to aid them in obeying the command of Jesus to "make disciples"
