"The world does not need better people, the world needs deeper people"
The word discipleship comes from the 12 guys who followed Jesus around, they were called disciples. A disciple is a learner, who learns by following. We use that word to describe our journey as modern followers of Jesus. We too, learn by following.
Discipleship is the ongoing transformation of our hearts, our minds and our lives.
We know that everyone is different so we've provided a bunch of different ways to spur on your spiritual growth.
