And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20).
The example of Jesus teaches us that true discipleship is relational. He spent a considerable amount time with His disciples. He walked with them, ate with them, prayed with them, and taught them. His way of making disciples shows that it cannot be reduced to a mere program or course. It involves investing in people, and seeing them developed through that relationship, so that they may in turn invest in others.
The purpose of the RBC Disciple-Maker Ministry is to provide a formal structure for relational discipleship. It involves a commitment of 1½ years with a very small group of people who meet weekly to discuss the Bible, pray together, and hold each other accountable with the purpose of helping one another grow in Christ.
What distinguishes this ministry from some of our other ministries, is this: it is specifically designed to bring about replication. This ministry is designed to make you into a disciple who make disciples who make disciples. It emphasizes replication.
