This 14 week course is designed to help students grow in their personal relationship with the Lord, lay a solid foundation for disciplemaking and to equip students to evangelize and establish young believers. Jesus’ last words on earth were, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matt. 28:19). Yet, many believers today are lost in the area of helping young believers take practical steps in growing in their faith. This course combines biblical disciplemaking principles with real-life, practical experiences.
