    What is Discipleship Essentials?

    Discipleship Essentials is a media-assisted, multi-lingual discipleship training tool. It is intended for open use by agencies and individuals to supplement their efforts to equip believers so they can first be discipled and then disciple others in their Christian walk. It is developed for lay leaders to use in small groups as well as one-on-one training; for young church pastors to have a series of initial sermons or teaching tools for their new congregations; and for the church growth movement.

    Each component can be repurposed for distribution through various methods, including audio players, web streaming or download, smart phones, tablet apps, as well as traditional broadcast methods.

    The Need

    It is needed because in many nations where the gospel has been proclaimed and received, there is a troubling gap between growth in the number of believers and the impact the Church is having on these nations… there is an urgent need for mature, trained disciples!

    "They are in house churches, in small groups, without any leader or teacher. They are not prepared." Rev. Hovik Edgar, Church movement director in PACT (Persian, Armenian, Central Asian & Turkish speaking countries)

    The Vision

    The vision of Discipleship Essentials is the development of a trained, mature base of Christ-followers as a means to evangelize and disciple the next generation of Christian leaders to carry out Jesus’ Great Commission, for disciples of Jesus around the world to become “multiplying disciples.” It is our desire that believers, young and old, rich and poor, male and female, will be helped in their daily Christian walk and that as they embrace these essentials of Christian living, the gospel would transform them, their families, communities, indeed their entire nations, into committed Christ-followers.

    “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

    Matthew 28:19
