The Making of a Disciple

This class is an in-depth exploration how to study the Bible with people and bring them to Christ. This class goes well beyond the basics of First Principles to establish a rigorous expectation for world evangelism, a keen, biblical understanding of conversion, solid exegesis of Scripture, and effective guided discovery to lead seekers to become disciples of Jesus.

Therefore go and make disciples of nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirt, and teaching them to obey everything you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
— Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
