Defining Discipleship // Disciple-Makers Job Description

I’m ‘busy’ reflecting on the summer and my own summer ministry team this year.

In one session I asked the team in pairs to come up with a definition of discipleship and to write a job description for a disciple-maker.
Thought I’d share their insights with you.

What do you think?

What is Discipleship:

  • The uncontainable overflow of Gods initiating Love, changing lives from the inside out.. which cannot be contained; it has to be shared!
  • A life which is always pressing on following after Christ, captivated by Him in triumphant joy, and spreading the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Him wherever it goes.
  • Transforming in increasing fruitfulness on the adventure of following Jesus.
  • An example of Christ’s example, living among the people as a reflection. In the world but not of it.

What is a Disciple-makers Job Description:

  • Introducing people to the goodness, mercy and grace of God. Keeping the cross central; everything else flows from it.
  • Someone willing to share their passion of living for Jesus, who models a life of self-sacrifice and devotion to their personal Saviour and who will encourage and support others on their journey of faith with utmost care and brotherly affection.
  • Modelling to and journeying with someone, as one who believes in both God’s and their ability of Christ-life transformation.
  • A role model who is a guide, teacher, friend and companion who through grace, love and persistence will encourage and support.
  • To Guide their searching.
