How to Help New Disciples Grow

  • What are the practices and disciplines that have helped you to grow as a Christian disciple?
  • How did you learn them?
  • What are the best ways of passing these practices and disciplines on to new disciples? How could you help?
The second in our ‘Evangelism Training for the Diocese of Edmonton’ workshops will focus on helping new disciples grow. We will start with Jesus’ invitation ‘Follow me’ and will consider the question ‘Where to? Where is Jesus leading us?’ We will consider three responses to that question: (1) Into a new relationship with God, (2) Into the family of God, and (3) Into a new way of living. We will look at some practices that help us grow in each of these areas, and finally we will consider how, as churches and as individuals, we can help new Christians learn these vital discipleship skills.
