Growing In Faith - Discipleship
Making disciple-makers means reproducing the character, ways and mission of Jesus in those God brings
around you, expecting them to do the same in others.
As a disciple of Christ, we are called to replicate Jesus’ ways, character and mission. Identifying someone
who is a few steps ahead of you in his or her faith and asking to be discipled can be transformational in
your life and in your walk with God. You’ll spend time getting to know God and getting to know one
another by meeting regularly and walking through a discipleship tool one-on-one or in a small group.
North Way also regularly offers an on-campus, small group environment called, “Prepare: An Introduction to Christianity
,” as a way to begin your discipleship journey.
Part of being a disciple of Christ includes being a disciple-maker. Once you have been discipled through
the foundational ways, character and mission of Jesus, it then becomes time for you to do the same for
others. Identifying someone - or a group of someones - a few steps behind you in faith and asking to
meet regularly to walk through a discipleship tool (Prepare, A Discipleship Journey or Discipleship
Essentials) will be one of the most rewarding ways to invest your time. If you’re interested in learning how
to disciple others, North Way regularly offers a Making Disciple-Makers Lab to help equip you to do so.
