If you have slinked around my blog pages at all, you’ll know that one of the ministries I am involved in is a discipleship program that I co-founded at the start of last summer. It’s called Immerse.

We’re about to start a new round, training up more disciples of Jesus, so I made a video to tell people a bit about it. This is the first time I’ve ever done a video like this before! I enjoyed it and am pretty happy with how it turned out. (plus the fact that it was free since I did it myself). Check it out. If you’re a film person (I know a few of my friends are) please give me grace!

So, in an attempt to keep you updated on what sort of ministry Michelle and I are doing, here’s a quick look at one of our ministries:

What are your thoughts about discipleship? What should it look like? How do we do it? Leave a comment below.

    Very timely as we were just discussing discipleship with friends on friday night. They are starting a small group at their home with this intent. Praise the Lord for confirmation.
    Be blessed in your endeavours.

      Very cool. Holy Spirit rocks! The two most important/helpful things that we have found in starting a discipleship program is: #1. Relational. Make one-on-one happen. #2. People need to learn how to hear God’s voice for themselves. #3. (I wasn’t planning on having a #3!) Discipleship is not about showing people what the truth is, but rather guiding them into their own revelation of that truth. I would love to see so many more groups like this start up within every church. So necessary. Blessings! -Nate
