Soon several men’s Journey Groups (aka Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship groups) will startup again for the coming year at the Chapel. Are you interested? Want to learn more? Just curious? Read on …
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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 that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Life-on-Life Missional Discipleship* .. aka Journey Groups happens in small groups of men (or small groups of women) who commit to meet together weekly for 8 months at a time. Each group has a leader who has a heart to develop a safe community where men can be known, loved, and care for one another. This community helps one another know God through His Word, grow in Christ-likeness, and become equipped to invest in others.
Laboring in the lives of a few with the intention of imparting one’s life, the gospel and God’s Word in such a way as to see them become more mature and equipped followers of Christ, committed to doing the same in the lives of others.
Because Jesus calls us to make disciples (Matt. 28:18-20). During His ministry on earth, Jesus invested deeply in a few men – loving, teaching, and equipping them. We desire to follow His example.
- Long-term (8 months at a time)
- Time commitment: prepare for lessons, come to weekly meetings, spend time with other members outside of meetings, attend optional workshops on occasion
- Focused on daily walk with God, applying the Word, sharing hearts and lives, becoming equipped to invest in others
- Deep relationships with a few other men
