Notable Points:

  • Making disciples is simple you must read, pray, and learn to grow.
  • Personal bible study will keep your church members on track.
    • Self feeding is very important this transforms them into an army of leaders.
    • Everything branches off of this.
  • Without a discipleship process defines what it means to be a disciple in your church (refer to link below).
    • The pastors can not always care for everyone especially if the ratio of staff to members is high.
  • 2 Timothy 3:16-17
    • This tells us that all scripture can be used for teaching, reproof, correction, and training.
  • Summarize: distill it down to the main points
  • Expose: shows you what is wrong in your life
  • Correction: how can I change sin in my life to holiness
  • Training: prepares you for something in your life
  • Using this method of study allows anyone to be able to grow because anyone can do it and there are no limitations regarding finances compared to other methods.
