One of my biggest passions is discipleship in the local church. In a secular sense we're talking about mentoring which basically means getting alongside folk and helping them to make positive choices in their lives and walking the walk with them through those choices. In the local church context it means doing just this but also helping them to know Jesus better by helping them grow in their faith and getting to know and understand the bible.
Discipleship doesn't always mean having the answers but rather helping folk to find the answer/s for themselves whilst also supporting them along the journey.
One of my biggest thrills has been to see my dear friend Michael in Chris Nissen getting alongside a young lad and discipling him. To see someone modelling in others what was modeled for them is so rewarding!

This was a cheating post because it was originally posted last year: Blogging From A To Z Challenge - D and there seems to be little point in reinventing the wheel.
