This course is the follow-up course to Discipleship One and requires the
successful completion of that course as a prerequisite for taking this course.
If you have not yet taken, and passed, the Discipleship One course then
you will not be allowed to take this course until you do so.
This course is to be carried out under the local church where you are a
member. Therefore, you must have permission from your pastor
to be a discipler or, as it is called in the Guide, a Role Model.
the completion of this course, you will have discipled at least one
other person whom God has put in your path. The first person you
should disciple is preferably the person that you led to the Lord during your
Salvation course. However, if that person doesn't want to be
discipled, then you may choose someone else or you can ask your pastor
for a suggestion of a candidate to be discipled. He may have a new
convert that he would like to entrust to your care.
You may take this course up to four
times for credit. However, you can only disciple one
person at a time during each 12 week period of attendance for credit.
first for this course and mark the form
"Begin" unless you have done so
previously. You do not sign in when you finish each
lesson. You only do so and mark the form "Finish" when
you have completed the entire course and you are ready for the Final
Download and print the COURSE RECORD FORM.
On it you will keep a record of your sign in
"Begin" date because
you will be required to enter it on the Sign In
"Finish" form that you will submit at the end of the
entire course. You will also keep other pertinent
information on that form such as date and score for each test so
that you will be able to keep track of your progress through the
permission form: Before you
disciple someone you must have the permission of your/their
pastor. Show your pastor the material you are going to use to
disciple the person, including the Milk of the Word and the
Discipler's Guide, and let him know you have already gone through
the program in the Milk of the Word and also let him know you are
completely familiar with the material in the Discipler's Guide-
familiar enough with it to know how to properly use it. If he
agrees you can disciple the person, then have him use the Pastor
Ministry Confirmation form that he can submit
online. Under "Ministries" have him input:
"Permission for student to disciple [name of person you are
going to disciple]."
The person you are discipling should
be a member of the church where you are a member. If they are
not a member of your church, then you will need your pastor's
permission to disciple them and you will need the permission of
their pastor for them to be discipled by you. In that case, a Pastor
Ministry Confirmation form is needed from your pastor
for you stating you have "Permission to disciple [name of the
other person]" and one from their pastor stating they
"[Name of person you are going to disciple] has permission to
be discipled by [your name]." This is assuming they are a member of some
church. If they are not a member of any church, then you will
only need your pastor's permission for you to disciple them. Make
sure the pastors submit your name as the name of the student and the
name of the one you are going to disciple in the
Your pastor knows if you are mature enough to disciple
someone else. The decision is up to them. Do not be
angry with them if they refuse to give you their permission.
If they say, "No," then realize they are doing it for your own
good and for the good of the one you wish to disciple. Should
your pastor say no, then ask him when he thinks you will be ready to
disciple someone. Maybe he can give you some material to help
you mature to the point you need to be to properly and biblically
disciple someone else. Discuss it with your pastor in a
non-confrontational manner and remember that God says they must give
an answer for your soul. In other words your pastor is
responsible to God for your growth toward maturity; and if they
don't believe you are ready to take on the job and responsibility of
discipling someone, then gracefully bow to their leadership and
authority. In no way be rebellious or resentful concerning
their decision. Simply appreciate their love and care for you
and respect their authority in this matter. If they, and the
pastor of the person you wish to disciple should they be a member of
another church, agree, then you may begin this course starting on
the day that the Pastor Ministry Confirmation forms are submitted by
them. Find out the date they submitted the forms because your
attendance in this course officially starts on the day both forms
are submitted to us.
& Study the entire textbook, Discipler's Guide, by Dr. James Wilkins, before
you start discipling someone. (You will find the link at the
end of the instructions.)

all of the exercises as you take the new convert/disciple through their Milk of the
Word discipleship book and do so according to the time-table required in
Milk of the Word textbook that the new convert will study under
your direction is divided into ten sections plus the
preliminary material. The preliminary material, which you will
take them through when you first give them their book, is considered
one lesson and your preparation, which is a complete reading and
study of your Guide and spiritually readying
yourself prior to discipling them, is also considered one lesson.

finish their work or if they skipped a week and then continued with their
the new convert needs to stay on a weekly schedule with their
lessons in The Milk of The Word, then you will need to stay on the
exact same weekly schedule as you meet with them weekly to discuss the
lessons. Therefore, this course requires an exact course attendance
in contrast to other courses which only have a minimum course
Lesson attendance will be 1 week per lesson.
1. Each week
you will file a report on the progress of the disciple. You can do so through the following link: Disciple
Progress Report. If possible, file that
report on the same day each week that you meet with the disciple or on the day
after. The reason for this is so that your memory of the
study time with them will be fresh in your memory. If you
must wait a couple of days, then write down the info required and
then submit it via the form when you can go online to do so.
2. These reports can be submitted even over the weekend
when the college offices are closed. Filing of the reports
here at the college is done automatically and they are then
reviewed by the staff during regular college office hours.
If you do file over the weekend, don't expect an answer to any of
your questions on the form until some time during regular office
hours, Monday through Friday.
3. If your disciple skips a week and you are not going to
meet with them until the following week, simply file a regular
report for that week and in it state that they skipped that week
and that you have contacted them at church or by phone to
encourage them and reassure them that you will gladly continue
their discipling the next week.
