This week I continue with my flow of thoughts from last week concerning making disciples. We hold discipleship as one of our main core values in our ministry Oikos, and seek to reproduce reproducers. Which is why we have a balance of informal and formal discipling. We spend time hanging out and goofing around with our disciples and those we’re mentoring through things like movies, games, and eating meals together.
Likewise there’s also formal stuff like teaching and Bible study, one on one times of mentoring, and so forth.
To properly disciple, I don’t believe you have one without the other. For example, pastoring a large mega church can result in you having 5000 tithing members who attend your event every Sunday morning but that does not mean they’re your disciples.
They’re attendees. So let’s unpack the image inside the seed of the Word of God and how discipleship goes from just passing on information, to imitation and innovation.
