Discipleship – The Path to Spiritual Maturity (part 1)

Jesus commanded his disciples to “Go and make disciples…” Unfortunately, churches in the PCUSA do not do a very good job at this. Biblical illiteracy is rampant in our denomination. Fasting is a foreign concept. “Tithing” is a dirty word. “Prayer” is something the pastor does just before the congregation recites the Lord’s Prayer. The Apostle Paul would call many of our members spiritually immature.

The Purpose Driven model provides a fantastic framework to assist the believer in becoming a disciple of Jesus. The process is built on four seminars and fourteen (or fifteen) 12 – 15 week classes.

Tomorrow I will describe the four seminars.
