One of the most common comments we hear from people and churches around the world is the need for discipleship resources and training. Evangelism is happening and people are coming to Christ they say, but what is really needed now is discipleship. The Go-Disciple project is an online and in-print modular series of studies conducted through an actively mentored discipleship program designed to meet this important need. It starts at a basic salvation level and step by step seeks to move each person through to greater maturity in Christian knowledge, character, and ministry skills. The programme is created to be contextually adaptable, able to be used to multiply disciples in all churches.
The Go-Disciple project aims to develop an intentional discipleship programme that provides an accessible systematic contextualised curriculum designed to be delivered in a transferable mentoring process to facilitate evangelism and the growth of believers within our global network of churches.
The Go-Disciple team will consist of international leaders who are well trained, recognised as effective teachers, writers, and mentors, and are passionate about equipping other leaders to make disciples.
The Go-Disciple team will develop a discipleship training programme (in print and online) which consists of 10 tracks or levels each having 10 sessions, covering material from salvation through to early stages of leadership. It is designed to be contextualised and delivered in a one to one or small group setting by mentors, area coaches, and national or regional trainers.
The Go-Disciple team will first train national or regional trainers how to use the Go-Disciple programme. The national or regional trainers will then train area coaches and mentors in the use of Go-Disciple in their local context.
The Go-Disciple project will include the provision of the Go-Disciple material in multiple translations as well as additional mentoring and discipling resources in print and online.
The Go-Disciple project will go through a number of phases, namely:
Writing | Testing | Publishing | Translating | Training |Multiplying
Currently the Go-Disciple programme is being written with a number of tracks completed or nearing completion. It is planned to launch the project at IBCM8 in June 2023, with tracks 1-4 completed, tested, and published. In addition the “Mentoring” track will also be completed to enable the commencement of the training of national trainers and regional coaches.
To develop and expand the project a significant amount of resources will be required. However, the importance and the reach of this project cannot be underestimated. The following resources will be required to support staff and cover other costs such as:
Content Development |Training & Delivery | Translation | IT & Online Systems | Publishing
