Discipleship Course Outline

The Discipleship course outline began with the vision to be a catalyst and facilitator in developing Christians to become leaders and disciplers of others and to create an environment that develops leaders who change nations.

It will take a person from a pagan background to a Christian small group leader discipling others in 12 months or less.

Empowering You to Disciple Others

It has been designed to empower Christians who have a burning desire to teach new believers on how to live a transformed life according to God’s Word by following the steps we have written in the Coach’s manuals. It is biblically sound and easy to teach.

The purpose of the ©Growing Deep and Strong series is to help you establish a new believer quickly with strong Biblical foundations, free them from past bondages that they may bring into their Christian walk, help them discover their God given gifts, teach them how to evangelize people they know and then equip them to be a Coach and disciple new Christians. (Matthew 28: 18-20)

 

Transforming lives

Once people become new believers, you can teach them how to live a transformed life according to God’s Word using the ©Growing Deep and Strong Christian discipleship and small group leadership program.

You can tailor the program to coincide with school terms and spread it over a 19-37 week period or longer.

You can choose a 19 or 37 Weeks Discipleship Course

Basic Discipleship Course

The Basic Discipleship Course is a 19 weeks course and is essential for all new Christians.

We strongly recommend that you coach them through the Basic Discipleship Course as quickly as possible after their spiritual birth so that strong biblical foundations are laid down and past baggage is dealt with quickly.

Advanced Discipleship Course

The Advanced Discipleship Course  is a 37 weeks program that includes the basic course and then gives you the tools to help a new Christian discover their God given gifts, strategies to evangelise and become a small group leader discipling others.

Evangelism and Discipling Others

“When God’s people are truly revived and renewed spiritually, it results in a new vision for a lost world and a new commitment to reach out to those who do not belong to Christ. Evangelism is the fruit of revival.” Rev. Billy Graham

You will find that by now your new disciples will have a strong desire to share with their circle of influence what God has done in their lives. The Advanced discipleship course helps you to equip them to evangelize their circle of influence and become a small group leader discipling others.

Module 3. The War Is Real

Firstly, the module has been designed to help your disciples discover their own unique God-given gifts and how they can best use their gifts as they serve God and help others.

Secondly, this module teaches on spiritual warfare, combining prayer, intercession and fasting as spiritual weapons against the enemy who blinds the eyes of those living in the kingdom of darkness.

The third aspect is to help your disciples apply the principles of prayer warfare practically by targeting three people in their circle of influence and praying for them over a 40-day period with the aim of seeing them come into the kingdom of God.

The topics include:

  • Gifts of the Father
  • Gifts of the Spirit
  • God’s heart for mankind
  • The war room
  • Warfare prayer strategies
  • Praying for breakthrough
  • The Lord of breakthroughs Sent out by Jesus

The video presentation called ©Behind The Scenes has been designed as an effective evangelism tool for presenting the Gospel to their friends at the conclusion of their 40-day prayer warfare.

  • New converts from prayer evangelism

New disciples of Jesus are the result of prayer warfare and evangelism. This is how new groups of brand new believers are multiplied.

Ideally, the person who prayed new believers into God’s kingdom would follow them up, and become their coach.

With your oversight as their coach they would become a coach and assist the new believer to begin Module One while they themselves complete module four, Discipling Others.

This is the beginning of your disciples becoming a coach and small group leader learning to disciple others.
