What is discipleship?
In Matthew 28, Jesus leaves his followers with these final instructions, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all I have commanded you.”
Discipleship is a relationship-based journey intended to deepen the faith of a Christ follower and to equip them to disciple someone else. We believe that this is the heart beat of Christ’s Church, first to be a disciple and then to make disciples.
In HSM, discipleship takes place in the context of our Journey Groups.
What is a Journey Group?
Journey Groups are accountability groups of 2-3 students meeting with a mature believer biweekly. Our Journey Group leader will be equip with tools to guide students through Biblical studies specifically addressing where the students are at in their walk.
How long does it last?
This depends on the student. Discipleship can last anywhere from 6 months to 24 months. Our initial study lasts 6 weeks. We would then encourage groups to dive deeper into studies and topics that directly address where students are in their walk.
