Discipleship.org is a website that offers various tools, books, guides, and articles that all pertain to making disciples who make disciples.

What is a disciple?

Generically speaking, a disciple is one who follows or studies under a sort of teacher or leader. Maybe for you, the word disciple sparks remembrance of the 12 disciples of Jesus: Peter, James, John, etc. (Trivia: can you name them all?)

A disciple of Jesus is anyone who makes a personal commitment to follow Jesus.

Discipleship refers to the actual practice of being a disciple, but what does that look like?

Go ahead and check out Discipleship.org at this point. They offer a free, introductory level Handbook to everyone through the home page (see the Handbook tab at the top).

This site and this organization is led by pastoral leaders such as Jim Putnam, Bill Hull, Francis Chan and many others. Their aim is to equip leaders to practice a model of discipleship that seeks to ultimately multiply.

The Handbook speaks of the six elements of a personal discipleship lifestyle. Those elements are:

  1. Jesus
  2. Intentionality
  3. Relationships
  4. Bible
  5. Journey
  6. Multiply

Beyond the handbook, this site is a great avenue to pickup additional resources that speak more about discipleship.
