The DisciplesPath is the Disciple Making Strategy of West Jackson Baptist Church
DisciplesPath is a disciple making strategy:
Based on a series of resources founded on Jesus’ model of discipleship;
Offers an intentional pathway for transformational discipleship;
Provides both a short-term or long-term study option;
Helps followers of Christ move from new disciples to mature disciple-makers.
What is DisciplesPath?
Short-term Study Option
Through its design and structure, every session of DisciplesPath emphasizes four key attributes of walking the Disciple's Path:
THE DISCIPLES’ PATH IS PROGRESSIVE
We are going somewhere – to spiritual maturity. This is not aimless wandering. These studies build on each other progressively.
THE DISCIPLE’S PATH IS RELATIONAL
A disciple must journey alongside the person discipling them. As this journey toward spiritual maturity is experienced, the disciple sees the lifestyle and practices of this disciple-maker, asks important questions of that person, and is taught specific skills, truths, and principles that will be exercised for the lifetime of the disciple.
THE DISCIPLE’S PATH IS DISCIPLINED
The greatest growth takes place when a disciple does what is commanded in Scripture, not just learns what Scripture says. That is why the end of each session in the Disciples Path series has a set of expectations that the growing disciple agrees to accomplish between meetings.
THE DISCIPLE’S PATH IS REPLICABLE
Discipleship is an ongoing process. Disciples Path was designed so that the person who has been disciple can then use the series to disciple someone else. By using the same resources, even the first-time disciple-maker will be comfortable taking on this important but sometimes intimidating role.
