Looking Ahead – 8 Key Points About The Discipleship Process
Point 1: The one-on-one discipleship process on average takes approximately 12 months. You will meet with your discipler every week or every other week depending on what is agreed upon together.
Point 2: If you have not completed the Discover DBC Class it is important that you do so.
Point 3: The biblical teaching standard at DBC is the King James Bible. Therefore, anyone discipling or being discipled at DBC will use a King James Bible. If you do not have one, one can be provided. If you have additional questions about this position, please schedule an appointment with a pastoral staff member.
Point 4: If you are not faithfully attending an Adult Bible Study, please start doing so. This is a great way to grow in goal 2 of discipleship!
Point 5: All pairings are reviewed and approved by the DBC pastoral team. This process can take a few weeks. Please know that there’s quite a bit of work that goes on behind the scenes to pair you with a discipler. Know that you are not being overlooked or forgotten. We’re doing our best to get it right!
Point 6: Be prepared to be stretched in a very good way and expect anyone or anything to surface soon to dissuade you from doing this. There is no greater priority or privilege than growing as a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ! Stay focused and stay faithful. It’s so worth it!
Point 7: If you missed this point under the First Mark of a Disciple, please consider now: Without exception, at Decatur Baptist Church, we will NOT attempt to disciple anyone who is yoked to an unbeliever in a dating relationship, living with a boyfriend/girlfriend, living a life of fornication (sex outside of marriage) or living an ungodly life with unbelievers.
Point 8: To be paired with a discipler, please complete the Discipleship Pairing Request and submit it at the Discipleship kiosk in the Gatheria.
