MM 221: Making Disciples (2 credits)
In this course, we will look at disciple-making in its various facets. Making disciples will be presented as the mandate of the church, and the church will be shown to consist of none other than disciples. We will study both the theological aspects of disciple-making and practical tools by which disciples are made. This will be done by looking at what we believe to be the three major building blocks of disciple-making: (1) pursuing holistic personal transformation, (2) facilitating development and leadership, and (3) establishing mentoring relationships as the basis for the soil in which disciples are grown. Students will learn from classroom instruction, along with class participation and special projects, including a simulated discipleship experience.
