Adult Small Groups: What Makes for Effective Discipleship?


Paul the Apostle had a discipleship method with distinct goals. His goals were an encouraged heart, deep affection among believers, and a profound confidence in who Jesus is and what He has done (Colossians 2:1-4). Notice that each goal involved the affections or emotions. Most modern discipleship methods involve information and character development and ignore the emotions and instincts. In this seminar we will see how to change the emotions, the instincts, and the heart. With those changes a believer can be stabilized in their faith for a life time of joy and service.
