Jesus’s strategy of transforming the world has not changed in over two thousand years. It is by making disciples. Jesus’s disciple making impact throughout the gospels was a lifestyle of developing life-on-life relationships through a three phase process: Learning, Following and Reproducing.
Most often it is the “reproducing” phase that tends to be forgotten. It’s one thing to learn about the Christian faith from someone and follow them as they follow Christ, but if you don’t take the truths that have been invested in you and pass them onto someone else, the cycle is broken.
Dallas Theological Seminary wants to be intentional in raising up the next generation of reproducing disciple makers. In this effort, we are partnering with veteran disciple makers who want to invest in our students in fulfilling the Great Commission.You will be partnered with one of our disciplers for a two semester experience where you will meet one on one throughout the year. If you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, these meetings can be face to face or can be by video conference. If you are outside the Dallas/Fort Worth area, these meetings will be by video conference with an option to meet face to face in Dallas sometime during the school year.
IMPORTANT: This is a commitment of around 2-2.5 hours a week (60 minutes for preparation and 60-90 minutes for discussion).
Our trained disciplers use one of two discipleship curriculums (see below) which you can then turn around and use with others you will disciple. Both of these curriculums are used in churches around the United States and have been translated into other languages.
Through a creative mix of case studies and scriptural illustrations, The Four Priorities workbook presents an easy-to-understand model for balancing the four priorities of Christ, self, relationships, and the world. Confronting life’s challenges with tough grace, this biblically based lifestyle helps Christians of all ages to mature in their faith and live a life of significance and influence for Christ.
We have closed our discipleship application process for this semester. If we have openings next semester, we will let the student body know and the application process will open up again.
