I recently attended the Orange Tour’s last stop in Charlotte, NC last weekend. I was happy to have a few volunteers and staff with me as well. As always we came away challenged with a bigger vision of what we are doing with our families.
Here are a few of the things that you need to know about the Orange Tour.
I wanted to go through a few of the key things that I think about when I think about discipleship. A lot of this is because I’ve been looking for a discipleship system for preteens.
It’s how Jesus started his ministry. He brought people with Him. It’s also how we should start our ministry and continue our ministry by living our lives with people.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 11:1
Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
I think spending time with people and living life alongside them in relationship is a non-negotiable when it comes to discipleship. Here are some keys that I think through when discipling someone and asking them to follow me.
I’ve recently been diving into the topic of discipleship for preteens. The Alpha Course and The Blue Book are some of the more popular discipleship methods. I’ve also heard from Elle about Don’t Climb Alone and think their materials are awesome but could be a bit confusing and could seem very long to someone just diving in.
So I’ve been on the search for a discipleship system that will give leaders and other preteens the ability to reach their friends with the gospel and begin to guide them to becoming a follower of Christ.
Right now I’m leaning towards writing something that will help preteens begin to learn the basics and in a format to help them disciple their friends. I’d love for it to be 8 weeks or less.
Do you know of any resources like this? What are you doing or using to help disciple the preteens in your ministry?
