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 should not take this course until you do so.
This course is designed to be carried out under the local church where
you are a member. Therefore, you
should seek and obtain the permission of your pastor to be a discipler
or, as it is called in the Guide, a Role Model.
Upon 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.
do not keep records for Monitoring Only students. However,
should you want to keep track of your progress through the course,
you may download and print a COURSE RECORD FORM.
On it you can keep a record of all pertinent
information for the
you are a member of a Church, then please follow the instructions in
this section. If you are not a member of a Church you should
disciple someone you should 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.
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 should seek your pastor's
permission to disciple them and then you should seek the permission of
their pastor for them to be discipled by you. 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.
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.

Word discipleship book and do so according to the time-table given in

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.

lessons in The Milk of The Word, then you will need to stay on the
